In 2013, Adalita’s second album ‘All Day Venus’ blitzed the music scene, landing her an Age/Music Victoria award just a month after its release. Closing out 2014, she delivered a stirring keynote speech at the annual AIR Awards and received an ARIA Award Nomination for Best Female Artist.

Adalita is a passionate supporter of the Amplify Divestment campaign, saying:
I can’t believe that banks still put money into coal mining when climate change is already causing so much harm. I don’t and won’t bank with them.
