“Can you believe Daryl Braithwaite
turned 70 this year?”

Braithwaite was 20 when he joined Sherbert in 1969 and in 2019 he is showing no signs of slowing down and/or stopping work.

He toured Australia with John Farnham earlier this year.

Sherbet formed in 69 and by early in the 70’s they had the first of 19 Top 40 hits with ‘Can You Feel It Baby’. Sherbet had several number 1 hits like Your My World in 74, Summer Love in 75, Howzat in 76 and another 16 or so top 40 hits in the 70’s.

In a distinguished career spanning more than 40 years Daryl Braithwaite is one of Australia’s award winning Hall of fame inducted performers.

“His early, famed success as a singer came with
Sherbet, a band which will forever remain
iconic in Australian music.”

In the 1970’s Sherbet delivered an unprecedented 20 Top 40 singles in Aus and were the first Australian band to top the $1 million dollar number in sales in Aus with a total of 15 albums and 30 singles to their name with songs like “Summer Love” becoming the highest selling single of 1975 and “Howzat” not only a No #1 hit in Australia, but also reached#2 in England.

Following the success of Sherbet, Daryl turned solo performer in 1988. His much aclaimed solo debut ‘Edge’, delivered four hit singles with “As the days go by”, “All I do”, “Let me be” and the incredibly popular “One summer”. The album topped the ARIA charts in 1989 and became the highest selling C.D in CBS Australia’s history.

Daryl’s follow up album, ‘Rise’, that came out in 1990 proved to be the biggest selling album in 1991 attaining multi platinum status.

’Rise’ featured “The Horses” named
Song Of The Year at the
1991 Australian Music Awards.

Right now Daryl Braithwaite is showing no signs of slowing down. Daft Punk recently sampled The Sherbs’ ‘We Ride Tonight’. In 2017 Daryl was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame as a solo artist.

‘The Horses’, a song Braithwaite is now most famous for is sung in sporting change rooms as a post match celebration, Daryl performs it at AFL and NRL Grand Finals etc. It is an iconic Australian hit.

Daryl is an avid surfer and bodyboarder that is looking forward to playing 3 x very special shows at Kandooma, surfing and mingling with new and lifelong fans at Surf Music In Paradise.

“America has Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen,
the U.K. has Van Morrison and Paul McCartney,
then Australia can confer similar prestige on
Richard Clapton.”

Songs like “Deep Water” and “Capricorn Dancer” are touchstones in Australian rock history, without which we wouldn’t really know who we are or where we’re going.”

Richard Clapton is a much-admired and respected lord of Australian music, the performer and songwriter of so many epic Australian classics: Deep Water, Best Years of Our Lives, Goodbye Tiger, Glory Road, Lucky Country, I am An Island, Trust Somebody, Capricorn Dancer and Girls on the Avenue.

Richard also helped produce the second INXS album, Underneath the Colours (1981), which saw the beginning of their incredible rise to fame. RC also joined the supergroup – The Party Boys for a period before resuming his solo career.

“In 1999, Clapton was inducted
into the (ARIA) Hall of Fame.
In 2019 he will be celebrating
45 years in the music industry.”

When RC began his recording career in 1974, the land down under was still in the grip of cultural artistic cringe. Clapton plunged into the “deep water” and legends like Skyhooks and Paul Kelly, Cold Chisel, INXS, Midnight Oil, and hundreds of others, followed in his wake.

Clapton’s songs are still regularly played on the radio to this day,

In 2014, Clapton’s memoir “The Best Years of Our Lives” was published by Allen and Unwin. The book connected with people of all generations because it was not only a story of Clapton’s journey, but it also documented the story of the lives of thousands of fans who had travelled the same road. Young people – fascinated by how it was “back in the day” also became a new generation of fans. The book continues to flourish through “word of mouth”, resonating with so many people in so many ways.
