Fresh from performing to rapturous audiences in England, Los Angeles and New York, which included three sets at The Great Escape, a sold-out Jazz Café & support date at KOKO, today Budjerah
A potent combination of smoldering soul, R&B stylings and deep grooves, Ready For the Sky showcases Budjerah’s smooth and agile vocals – and an evolution of his sound. Budjerah has this to say of the single, produced by his musical confidante, Chris Collins “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.”
The single is Budjerah’s first new music since the release of his acclaimed second EP Conversations in April. Since the release, the music visionary commences his global assault, most notably featuring on a remix of Ed Sheeran’s single 2Stepin May. Alongside headline shows north of the equator, he also performed as special guest for Vance Joy on his global tour, and sets at The Great Escape throughout May and June.
Next, he will perform at Byron Bay’s Splendour In the Grass and then A More Perfect Union – a festival created by Gang of Youths, Jungle Love Festival, and as special guest for Vance Joy on the Australian leg of his world tour.
In 2020, Australia was introduced to the spectacular voice of Budjerah: a new, homegrown R&B star. Possessing songwriting ingenuity and old-soul wisdom, it quickly became abundantly clear that, for a lot of us, Budjerah was the kind of figure we’d been missing. His acclaimed debut self-titled EP followed in 2021, he took home the Michael Gudinski Breakthrough Artist ARIA award from five nominations; performed coveted support slots with Thelma Plum, The Avalanches and Lime Cordiale, collaborated with dance music superstars PNAU and completed his first headline tour.
