Aussie icon Daryl Braithwaite is heading to Meredith in 2018

First gracing the music scene as the lead singer of Sherbet, Daryl Braithwaite found fame during the band’s long career on the ’70s pop scene. Here, the band released 20 national top 40 singles and earned the title of the first Australian band to top $1 million in sales within the country. It was with singles such as ‘Summer Love’ and ‘Howzat’ that launched Daryl’s career and made Sherbet successful.

After ending their stint in pop, with an accumulated total of 15 albums and 30 singles to their name, Daryl went on to release the album ‘Edge’ in 1988. The astounding success of the album kept Daryl on the charts for over a year and at no. 1 for several weeks. Further than that, the album became the highest selling CD in Sony Music Australia’s history.

Audiences likely know Daryl for the hit ‘The Horses’, which dominated the charts and held the position of no. 1 for an ongoing period. The success of the track led to it being voted Australian Song of the Year in 1991.

It comes as no surprise that Daryl’s success spanned across the years and that when he released his new album, ‘Forever the Tourist’, it was met with instantaneous open-arms. This new sound reveals a riveting new chapter in this musician’s life, the centrepiece of the album being ‘Not Too Late’ ― an anthemic single with the uplifting message that “it’s not too late to try anything, whether it be music or anything else”.

With a message such as that, it’s a given that audiences are receiving the song well, and it will be part of the line up, joining the classics, at Daryl’s second performance (the first sold out faster than ice creams on a forty degree day) at The Royal Hotel in Meredith on February 4.

Don’t miss out on reliving the formative years of Australian music with Daryl Braithwaite, a pioneer in Australian pop music and a must-see live performer.
