In the space of a couple of years, 21-year-old singer-songwriter Budjerah has created a wave of buzz to become one of Australia's hottest new music acts. Fresh off the release of his brand-new single, 'Therapy', and a tour in support of global superstar Ed Sheeran, the rising star is set to make his Sydney Opera House debut at Vivid LIVE, performing his distinctive mix of soulful, RnB-inflected pop in the Studio for one night only.
A Coodjinburra man from the Bundjalung nation, Budjerah Slabb was raised in a family as devoted to church as they were to music, and his warm, rich sound – forged from the elements of soul, gospel, RnB and contemporary pop – reflects the diversity of his influences. Mentored by singer-songwriter Matt Corby, Budjerah's music flourished, producing his triple J-topping debut single 'Missing You' (2021) and his self-titled, ARIA-award-winning debut EP, which introduced the young artist's distinctive, soulful voice – and RnB pop sound – to dazzled audiences around the country. In 2022, Budjerah scored a second ARIA for his follow-up, Conversations, guested on Sheeran’s smash hit '2Step', and collaborated with local faves PNAU on 'Stranger Love'.
With his new single, the boundary-pushing RnB/pop crossover 'Therapy', Budjerah is taking his sound to the next level – and you’re invited to the coronation.
