Darlinghurst release their highly anticipated debut self titled album. The 12-song album was recorded and produced by Pete Dacy and band member Jason Resch at Secret Sound Studio and mixed by Grammy award winner Jack Joseph Puig (U2, John Mayer, The Rolling Stones, Green Day). All four members have combined their different musical influences and experiences and created a fresh sound in the Australian country sphere that is as accessible as it is unique. The album is grounded in refined song writing, a keen ear for melody, relatable lyricism and exceptional vocal performances, their voice’s blending together in sumptuous, layered harmonies creating a fifth voice – Darlinghurst. To celebrate the release of their album, Darlinghurst will also be performing on the below dates:

JASON RESCH — arguably the most successful Australian songwriter you’ve never heard of. With his modish mop and immaculate vintage suits, Jason initially looks more suited to The Rolling Stones in 1965 than a country outfit in 2021. But Jase has dedicated a big chunk of his young life to his love of country, having lived and worked in Nashville for years before recently resettling in his hometown of Melbourne.
CASSIE LEOPOLD and PAGAN NEWMAN — the ladies of DARLINGHURST who were a duo long before their powerful harmonies forged the foundation of this new quartet. Wait until you hear these voices together. Cass and Paigs: a force of nature, technically unrelated but inseparable sisters in life and song.
MATT DARVIDIS — the new kid on the block. A prodigious guitarist, the missing link
