Launching his first national tour in Adelaide last Friday, Budjerah shares ‘Budjerah – Live At Rainbow Valley‘ EP via Warner Music Australia.  The live opus reimagines the 19-year-old savant’s debut self-titled EP and shines a light on the range, power and soul of the formidable vocalist, alongside unforgettable appearances from Ainslie Wills, JK-47, Matt Corby, Ngaiire and Stevan.  

Produced and co-written by Matt 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

Widely touted as one of Australia’s best new voices, Budjerah has been announced to support The Avalanches at their forthcoming sold-out Enmore Theatre show on Saturday 29 May. He recently took the stage for a breathtaking performance at Music From The Home Front, alongside special guest appearances with Jack River, Lime Cordiale and Thelma Plum

Budjerah’s self-titled debut EP was released in March to widespread critical acclaim.   Produced by ARIA and J Award winning artist Matt Corby, the EP features his compelling debut single Missing You, which claimed the #1 position on the triple j airplay chart.   The track was followed by the runaway hit single Higher that landed at #22 on the national airplay chart this week. 

Budjerah will travel the nation for the first time with his mesmerising live show for performances in Adelaide, Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Gold Coast and Brisbane.
