Shaun and Daryl B

Happy birthday to singer Daryl Braithwaite who is 71 on the 11th of January.

Daryl enjoyed a successful career as frontman for Sherbet from 1970 to 1984.

The band had hits like Howzat, Summer Love, Life and Silvery Moon.

Daryl also recorded a few solo singles while with Sherbet and You're My World reached Number 1.

When the band broke up Daryl recorded and performed as a solo artist.

By '87 he had left the music industry but in '88 he started recording the Edge album.

The album hit Number 1 and the first single release As The Days Go By just missed the Top 10.

The album had other hits All I Do, One Summer and Let Me Be.

In '91 the single The Horses cracked Number 1 and the Rise album just missed the top spot.

Daryl has released a further four albums since Rise with mixed success.

He continues to perform live around the country and is especially busy during the Spring Racing Carnival.
