Braithwaite’s 1990 follow up album ‘Rise’ included the single ‘The Horses’ which reached #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and to this day remains an anthem for generations of Australians.
In 2020, Braithwaite joined a host of local and international artists to perform at Fire Fight Australia, Concert For National Bushfire Relief in front of an audience of more than 70,000 at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium.

A band of individuals who bring their experience in music together to create a contemporary Country Music sound with a unique fingerprint, Darlinghurst have been creating a buzz and garnering a positive reaction since they formed in 2017.
All four members share vocal responsibilities, blending in sumptuous harmonies to create a fifth voice – Darlinghurst.
