Adelaide-born, Melbourne based artist Adrian Eagle is making some series moves at the moment, resulting in considerable buzz that’s resonating throughout all the land. Clearly in no mood to slow down, Eagle has today announced his forthcoming debut EP, MAMA, and a freshly inked deal with maker of kings and queens, Island Records Australia.
You may have caught Adrian’s outing as a guest artist on the Hilltop Hoods hit Clark Griswold, or perhaps his stirring rendition of Ocean Alley’s ‘Confidence’ for Like A Version; the point being, Adrian Eagle is a name that’s starting to pop up more and more.
Already we’ve heard breakout singles 17 Again and AOK, which will be two key features on the impending EP which will contain plenty more currently unearthed gems. Throughout the course of the release, Eagle dissects his life, struggles, rises and falls for an authentic, and above all, tasty listening experience cast underneath a smooth layer of neo-soul and classic hip hop.
Speaking of the EP, Eagle explains, “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!”
Other than pricking up ears of fans, Eagle also turned heads within the industry leading to the record deal with Island Records.
Speaking of the partnership, Scott Horscroft, Music Producer & A&R Consultant for Universal Music adds, “Adrian Eagle is an incredible talent with a unique and beautiful voice that impacts listeners instantaneously. The buzz around his new music is infectious. It’s very exciting to be working with Michael Taylor (Managing Director of Universal Music Australia), and the team on supporting Adrian in his next phase of record making”
MAMA will hit shelves – both digitally and otherwise – on Friday, 20th September giving you plenty of time to get your head around the grooves and lyrics in time for his upcoming national EP tour kicking off next year.
