After garnering widespread acclaim for his breakout single and video 17 Again, his guest appearance on the legendary Hilltop Hoods ARIA Award winning single Clark Griswold and a massive national and international touring schedule, 2018 was a landmark year 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 2018 for the magnetic young performer, not to mention sold out debut shows across the East Coast and two highly talked about appearances at Brisbane’s Big Sound festival.
