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. 


In just a short span of time, Sydney artist Becca Hatch has curated a space in the Australian contemporary R&B scene that is wholly her own.

The Kamilaroi/Samoan artist rose to wider attention after winning Triple J Unearthed High’s Indigenous Initiative in 2017, though in the years that followed, Becca has established herself as a dynamic artist whose voice and style adds a beautiful flair to the current wave of Australian artists bringing R&B-centric music back to the fore. First courting attention with the release of debut single ‘2560’ in 2020, Hatch demonstrated her proficiency as a vocalist: though starting at a young age, Becca’s voice was one drenched in rich soul quality that spoke to influences that significantly formed the genre before her. Like her music, Becca’s personality captivates; audiences Australia wide have become enamoured with her and as the next chapter of music awaits, Becca Hatch is excited to get this new era started.

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!!
