Vintage soul and gospel gets a modern pop twist in the dazzling sound of Budjerah, the ARIA-award-winning R&B sensation making his Darwin debut.

In the space of just a couple of years, this 21-year-old Coodjinburra singer-songwriter has generated a huge buzz, becoming one of Australia’s hottest new music acts. Fresh off the release of his brand-new R&B/pop crossover single ‘Therapy’ and a massive national tour in support of global superstar Ed Sheeran, this star on the rise brings his distinctive mix of soulful, R&B-inflected pop to the INPEX Sunset Stage.

Budjerah is a two-time ARIA Award-winning artist after taking home Breakthrough artist in 2021 and Best Soul/R&B Release in 2022. He also triumphed with an APRA Award for Most Performed R&B/Soul Work for the Matt Corby co-written ‘Higher’. He was recently nominated for Best Single and Best New Artist at the 2023 Rolling Stone Australia Awards, and Aussie/Kiwi Legend Of The Year at the 2023 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards. 2023 is set to be a landmark year for Budjerah, as he seizes every opportunity and pushes boundaries vocally and sonically.

If you’re yet to discover this huge talent, you’re in for treat. If you’re already a fan, get ready to be blown away.
