BUDJERAH at Miami Marketta, Gold Coast (Miami, QLD) on Saturday, 9 October 2021
Update 16 August 2021
Due the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and the NSW statewide lockdown - regrettably we need to reschedule Budjerah's show to SATURDAY 09 OCTOBER
All existing tickets are valid for this new event date

For 18-year-old artist Budjerah Slabb, making music was an inevitability.

Raised in a home full of instruments by a family whose time was split between playing in family bands and leading worship services in the local church, Budjerah has crafted a sound that melds the formative elements of gospel and soul, with contemporary pop and R'n'B references.

"I grew up singing Sam Cooke and listening to gospel singers like The Clark Sisters. That's the kind of music that has been around since I was little."

He found kinship with ARIA and J Award-winning artist Matt Corby, who produced his upcoming debut EP. Corby's studio is located close to Budjerah's home in Fingal Head – traditionally the land of Bundjalung people, from which Budjerah is descended – and the two clocked countless hours comparing notes and crafting the sound that would introduce the world to what Budjerah can do.

"I'm pushing the limits too far, I'm way out of my lane. When will my patience run out? Not everyone will break the same way,”

Budjerah sings on his debut single Missing You. The song was immediately added to rotation on triple j and spent over a week at the #1 position on the station’s ‘most played’ chart. A melancholic and sophisticated R'n'B track that melds longing lyrics with a sparse sonic palette, the single taps into the sense of isolation Budjerah knows he isn't alone in experiencing.
We might still be in the first few chapters, but it's clear Budjerah's tales will bring listeners closer together.
"When people listen to my music, they'll hear my experience. I hope it brings them comfort and shows they're not alone."
