About Daryl Braithwaite

Throughout an illustrious career spanning more than 25 years, Daryl Braithwaite has firmly established himself as one of Australia's foremost entertainers. Revered by fans and peers alike, he has crafted a career that stands as a testament to his talent and dedication.

Daryl initially rose to fame as the lead singer of Sherbet, a band synonymous with the 1970s music scene in Australia. The group achieved numerous milestones, including being the first Australian band to surpass $1 million in album sales locally. With a discography boasting 15 albums and 30 singles, Sherbet's hits such as 'Summer Love' topped the charts, making 'Howzat' a global success in Australia, England, and America.

Even during his Sherbet days, Daryl garnered acclaim as a solo artist, scoring hits like the chart-topping 'You're My World' in 1974. His popularity peaked with consecutive 'King of Pop' awards from 1975 to 1977, and he took on the lead role in the Melbourne production of 'Tommy,' showcasing his versatility.

Following Sherbet's farewell tour in 1983, the band was later inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, solidifying their place in Australian music history. Daryl's solo career soared with the release of his album 'Edge' in November 1988, which spent over a year on the ARIA charts, peaking at #1 and achieving quadruple platinum status in Australia. The album included the hit single 'One Summer,' which Daryl penned and earned gold certification.

In 1994, Daryl released 'Six Moons: The Best of 1988-1994,' featuring twelve hit singles and new tracks like 'How Can I Be Sure.' He later contributed to the platinum-selling album 'Company of Strangers' with fellow musicians Simon Hussey, James Reyne, and Jef Scott.

Daryl remains in high demand as a live performer, captivating audiences with his acoustic sets at numerous corporate and public events. His enduring passion for music, coupled with a grounded perspective on life, ensures he looks ahead to future challenges with unwavering enthusiasm.

Throughout his journey, Daryl's distinctive and emotive voice has resonated deeply within the Australian cultural landscape, marking him as a cherished icon.
