Nine ARIAs. Multi-platinum sales. Half a billion global streams. Songs embedded in the national consciousness.
The legacy of the Hilltop Hoods is already undeniable. They helped create hip hop as a local genre in Australia.
‘1955’ and ‘Cosby Sweater’ reached the top five in the ARIA charts and have both reached six-times platinum status. The smash ‘I Love It’ went five-times platinum. They opened the door for countless acts from all over Australia through their mentoring, touring and their annual Initiative for emerging acts.
Every studio album from 2006’s The Hard Road onwards has debuted at number one – they even picked up a number one debut for their recent Remix album (Drinking From The Sun Walking Under Stars Restrung). They’ve consistently racked up multi-platinum sales in an era when the industry is seeing sales dwindle across the board. They’ve also been a consistent and powerful live act throughout Australia, Canada and Europe, and even took hip hop back to its birthplace in the US.
In just a few short years Adrian Eagle has gone from writing his own music in Adelaide to playing festival main stages and arenas around Australia.
Marking a new phase in his career, representing Australian soul Adrian is now excited to present his debut EP ‘MAMA’, released via Island Records Australia. Channeling his now trademark sound, the ‘MAMA’ EP features 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 “A.O.K”- 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, 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.
