In just a few short years Adrian Eagle has gone from singing covers and writing his own music in inner city Adelaide to playing festival main stages and arenas around Australia, and the release of his debut EP ‘MAMA’ through a newly minted partnership with Island Records Australia.
After featuring on legendary Hilltop Hoods ARIA Award winning Platinum single Clark Griswold, Adrian’s own breakout solo singles 17 Again and AOK showcased his dynamic vocal style and unique personal delivery which he has become known for across the country.
Channeling his now trademark street-gospel sound, the ‘MAMA’ EP will feature recent ode to his hometown of Adelaide Housing Trust and breakout single 17 Again which told his journey of overcoming suicidal thoughts after weighing a life threatening 270kg at just 17 years old.
The EP also features powerful anthem of positivity AOK– which also serves as an important message: that kindness and love will often overcome adversity.
Featuring three more unreleased tracks, the ‘MAMA’ EP is Adrian’s life and experiences laid bare for the listener, an outlet to share his struggles with the world in the hope of helping others overcome whatever struggles they are facing in their lives too – carefully written and selected to reflect uplifting and important messages he wants to share within the community.
Produced in majority by Jerome Farah (Kian, Baker Boy), the EP oozes in neo-soul traditions and classic hip-hop grooves layered under Adrian’s powerful emotive vocals and lyrical storytelling unlike anything else in this country right now.
“The EP has been a work in progress for the past few years of my life, and lyrically accumulating the lessons I learned throughout my entire life up until this point. MAMA is deeply personal for me and I can’t wait to share it with you all. This one is for all of the mama’s in my life and my gift back to the one mother we all share – big love!”
Adrian is currently touring Australia with Tones & I throughout September, before heading to North America with Hilltop Hoods throughout Nov/Dec when he returns for his own Australian headline EP tour in January/February 2020.
