One of the greats of the Australian music scene, Daryl Braithwaite, was kind enough to swing by the Southern FM studios recently where he talked about the old days and what he is up to at the moment. Braithwaite has forged a successful solo career after his work earlier with Sherbet. From 1974 through 1993 Braithwaite placed 15 solo hits in the Australian top 40. He was crowned King of Pop over three consecutive years from 1975 to 1977 as well as appearing in stage musicals such as Tommy and Chess. In 1988, Braithwaite recorded and released his comeback album “Edge”. This LP spawned four hit singles. He is still actively performing in unison with some other Oz legends. www.darylbraithwaite.com.au
“Was great to listen to Dazza. Am a huge Sherbet fan and have always regarded Daryl as having one of the finest natural singing voices in this country.” – Sue.M – listener

Exceptional song writing abilities, loyal friendship, tireless touring and a strong work ethic have seen South African born Glenn Mossop (vocals / acoustic guitar); New Zealanders Regan Lethbridge (electric guitar / vocals), David Morgan (bass), Dan Chisholm (drums) and Australian James Majernik (percussion) sell in excess of 20,000 CDs independently.
BONJAH’s critically acclaimed debut album Until Dawn was released in March 2009 and was later nominated for Best Australian Independent Blues and Roots Album. The band also picked up a nomination from Rolling Stone Magazine for Best Blues & Roots Artist as well as having two songs nominated for APRA’s Best Blues & Roots Work recognising the band as one of Australasia’s best songwriters of the last 18 months.
The infectious five piece have supported some of the world’s greatest artists including The Who, Counting Crows, G Love & Special Sauce, The Original Wailers and Australia’s own Paul Kelly and The Beautiful Girls.
“BONJAH are fast becoming one of the hottest live acts Australia has to offer – with the band joining the bill of just about every festival under the sun”
