    After a month of travelling she will return to western Sydney to release her third record, Silver Lining.

    “It’s been a little bit of a whirlwind for me; it seems like yesterday I released my first single,” she said.

    “When I was 10 or 11, I did my first talent quest. When I was up on stage I shook like a leaf and didn’t move at all.

    “Being on stage was very scary then, but now I’ve been at it for a while and I haven’t felt that in a long time.”

    Since releasing her first single, Crawl, Darke has performed alongside The McClymonts, Emerson Drive and Doc Walker.

    Her tracks have climbed country music charts everywhere, with her song Disposable reaching No.1 on iTunes.

    Darke was trained across several genres, including rock and pop, but she said country had always been where her heart is.

    “Country is my forte. The thing I’m drawn to most is the storytelling and country music always has a story to it.”

    She said she was excited about the album launch.

    “It’s going to be really big. The new album will be different from before, it’s a bit more mature in terms of writing.

    “I just love being able to play to an audience.

    “I want to do it for the rest of my life.

    “There’s nothing better than the feeling of performing up on stage and hearing people singing your songs back to you.”
