Now 20, and with a debut EP under his belt — as well as an ARIA Breakthrough Artist award from 5x nominations, previous support slots with Thelma Plum, The Avalanches, and Lime Cordiale, a collaboration with PNAU, and an upcoming world tour lined up with Vance Joy — Budjerah is ready to charge forward, armed with a new set of songs that show off his range, his fire, and, of course, his gossamer, heart-wrenching voice. 


Mo’Ju has been called “one of Australia’s most exciting singer/ songwriters” and their music has amassed critcal, commercial and cultural influence. 2018’s release “Native Tongue” was one of the year’s most important and award-winning releases, impacting not only Mo’Ju’s life and music but also the Australian musical landscape. With the album being career definer for the sing/songwriter, Mo’ju had documented a deep and intimate exploration of family and identity, in particular their Wiradjuri and Filipino roots.

Sweet, sour, pretty and brash... all at the same time it's the best way to describe Toowoomba-based artist CLOE TERARE. Coming out late in 2021 with only her third single 'Scotty (Beam Me Up)', a genre bouncing pop number that grabbed the attention of Triple J Unearthed, Spotify and landed in TikToks 'Emerging Artist' playlist. 
Securing a spot with Triple J’s Unearthed Feature Artists as well as the first Feature Artist on The for 2022. It's been a hell of a start to the year and CLOE's only just winding up with new music just around the corner, what she’s going to throw at us next!!


Kristal West is a Manbarra, Palawa woman with strong connection to her Piadram roots, and in 2014 she found a national audience after becoming a Grand Finalist on The Voice Australia. As part of the duo ZK, Kristal was mentored on ‘The Voice’ by Kristal developed a huge fan base, allowing her musical career to soar to new heights.
