19-year old singer-songwriter Budjerah has unveiled his shimmering new EP, Budjerah - Live At Rainbow Valley. Featuring reimagined tracks off the musicians debut release, the live EP features appearances from Ainslie Wills, JK-47, Matt Corby, Ngaiire and Stevan.
Budjerah sees the musician continue his collaborative efforts with ARIA and J Award-winning artist Matt Corby, who produced the body of work. The pair worked tirelessly on the EP, crafting the sound that would introduce the world to Budjerah’s musical abilities. Produced and co-written by Corby, Budjerah - Live At Rainbow Valley was recorded at Corby’s Rainbow Valley studio in the Northern Rivers in NSW.
"I love live music, so the original idea for this project was just do a live version of Missing You and have Matt Corby be a feature. But I started to think more on it and I thought "Why don’t we do the whole EP and get a different person to feature on each song?' I’ve been a fan of Ngaiire and Ainslie’s music for such a long time, and JK-47 and Stevan are killing it right now. It’s been an honour to collaborate, they’ve all brought something unique to each of the songs. I’m so excited to share it,” says Budjerah.
Kicking off in Adelaide on May 14, Budjerah will take to the stage in Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, before wrapping up his debut tour in Brisbane. Having supported the likes of Lime Cordiale and Thelma Plum, the musician is fast becoming known for his mesmerising live performances, showcasing his stellar vocals and skilful musicianship. He will also be performing an exclusive set at Euroa Music Festival this weekend.
