Set times


Darlinghurst is a new Melbourne based four-piece that’s redefining Australian country music.

Consisting of Jason Resch, Pagan Newman, Cassie Leopold and Matt Darvidis, all four members share vocal responsibilities, blending together in sumptuous harmonies to create a fifth voice – Darlinghurst. With all four members combining their different musical influences and experiences, Darlinghurst have created a new sound in the Australian country sphere that is as accessible as it is unique.

Grounded in refined songwriting, a keen ear for melody, relatable lyricism and exceptional performances, the band has a broad appeal that has been reflected in the success of Darlinghurst’s releases to date. Only a few days ago, the band’s debut self-titled album was released on August 27, 2021.

Darlinghurst’s music is certainly proving to be infectious with no less than six from six Top 5 Country Hot 50 chart positions to date, including three #1’s, their debut single ‘Sorry Won’t Get You Back’, ‘Gotta Go Rodeo’ and ‘‘Where Do We Go’. Just recently, Darlinghurst was nominated for New Talent of the Year at the 2021 Golden Guitar Awards.

Don’t miss this rising band as they take to the Groundwater stage 12-14 November, 2021.
