Adrian Eagle, born Adrian Naidu, is an Australian singer-songwriter. He has been nominated for an ARIA Award and won two categories in the SA Music Awards in 2019.
He was born in Adelaide to a Maltese mother and a Fiji-Indian father, with the surname Naidu. He has spoken frankly of his problems with anxiety, and his debut EP, Mama, pays homage to the women who have supported him, especially his mum, who raised him as a single mother.
His first break came when his cover of "Redemption Song" was shared by rapper 360. He later collaborated with the Hilltop Hoods on their single "Clark Griswold". That song won them the 2018 ARIA for Best Urban Release.
He went on to release the singles "17 Again" and "A.O.K." (which both had national rotation on Triple J,) and his debut EP, Mama, in 2019.
Adrian Eagle also appears as a guest vocalist on a range of hip hop artists' recordings, including Thundamentals, Fortay, K21 and Yorta Yorta artist DRMNGNOW.
