Days before he takes to the stage at Splendour In The Grass, rising singer-songwriter Budjerah has unveiled his inspirational new single, Ready For The Sky.

On his latest offering, Budjerah is showing no signs of slowing down, reaffirming nothing can hold him back as he looks towards new heights. Ready For The Sky was written back in 2020 - when everyone really wanted to go out and have fun again and I wanted to talk about that ambitious feeling I had of being ready to go back into the world.” Budjerah shares.

We caught up with Budjerah at THIS THAT in Newcastle! Watch our interview above.

Earlier this year, the musician teamed up once again with longtime producers Matt Corby and Chris Collins on his sophomore EP, Conversations. This time around, he expands his list of illustrious collaborators, with German–Australian producer Konstantin Kersting taking on production duties for What Should I Do.

Budjerah took home the ARIA Award for Michael Gudinski Breakthrough Artist for his debut self-titled EP at the 2021 ARIA Awards, weeks after being named Best New Talent at the National Indigenous Music Award. The award was presented by megastar Ed Sheeran and homegrown legend Vance Joy. Yesterday, Budjerah recieved nominations for Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year and Most Performed R&B / Soul Work for Higher at the forthcoming 2022 APRA Music Awards.

Ready For The Sky is out now!
