After garnering widespread acclaim for his breakout singles 17 Again and AOK, as well as his guest appearance on the legendary Hilltop Hoods ARIA Award winning single Clark Griswold, a sincere rendition of Ocean Alley’s ‘Confidence’ for Like A Version, and a massive national and international touring schedule, it has been a landmark couple of years for emerging Adelaide bred singer-songwriter Adrian Eagle.
Breaking out in early 2018, the stirring 17 Again and it’s inspirational music video find Adrian sharing his journey of overcoming suicidal thoughts and mental health issues after weighing a life-threatening 270kg at seventeen years old. Provocative, aspirational and instantly memorable, the track launched the South Australian native into the Australian music consciousness, with major support from Triple J and universal praise from the public and industry alike.
After dropping their name on that very song, Adrian quickly found himself touring Europe alongside his childhood heroes, fellow South Australians the Hilltop Hoods in support of their comeback single Clark Griswold.
His guest appearance, star turn in the music video, the Best Urban Release Award win at the ARIA Awards and his rousing performance at Splendour in the Grass capped off an incredible 12 months for the magnetic young performer, not to mention sold out debut shows across the East Coast and taking home Best New Artist at South Australian Music Awards.
Taking Adrian on his biggest headline tour to date, his follow up single A.O.K. came next, once again proving that he is a growing voice of change and hope for youth struggling with difficult circumstances and mental issues. A vibrant slice of street gospel, classic rap drums, and his stirring trademark vocal delivery,
‘A.O.K’ is an inspiring modern-day anthem reflective of changes in Adrian’s outlook on life after conquering his own demons through the power of music, dignity and mindfulness. An outlier in today’s modern music industry, Adrian is finding success in being himself, and embracing his honesty and vulnerability.
“Hopeful, life-affirming music: sunshine-infused gospel that promises – and goes some way to convincing you – that everything will be okay. Eagle’s soaring voice is the focal point, but the messaging is what stands him apart.”
– The Guardian
“Armed with an imitable voice, a tireless work ethic, stunning performance style, and mesmerising lyrics, it’s no secret that he’s set to be one of Australia’s biggest artists in no time.”
