Budjerah's recent single ‘Therapy’ is taking his music to the next level. The ARIA award-winning, Coodjinburra artist is pushing boundaries vocally and sonically with the R&B/pop crossover, an ambitious emotional sucker-punch. Co-written by Sarah Aarons and Ajay Bhattacharyya, ‘Therapy’ showcases Budjerah's fearless vocal range and marks a new direction for his career.


Clocking over 4.9 million combined streams, ‘Therapy’ is currently the most streamed 2023 release in Australia from an Australian signed artist. It reached a peak of #101 on Spotify Top 200 Chart (AUS), #27 on the Spotify AU Viral Chart, #1 in Spotify Hot Hits in Australia and was the cover of Spotify AU/NZ’s New Music Friday and Apple’s Today’s Hits AU. At radio it has become his most added song to-date and made its way into the Top 20 on Aus Radio Charts. It received adds across commercial, community and retail radio.


Armed with a brand-new band featuring family he’s grown-up jamming with, he completed his first headline tour last year and has impressed at a wide array of festivals including Splendour In The Grass, This That, and recently at For The Love. He also supported Vance Joy on his Australian, North American, and UK tours, introducing him to a whole new audience.


He now has two EPs to his name, 2021’s debut self-titled release, and 2022’s ‘Conversations’. He’s collaborated with everyone from PNAU on ‘Stranger Love’ to MAY-A on ‘Talk’, finding success with the latter on the luscious, soulful track which proved to be a triumph for both artists.


The accomplishments have been fast and plentiful in the last two years. He’s now a two-time ARIA Award-winning artist after taking home Breakthrough artist in 2021 and Best Soul/R&B Release in 2022. He also triumphed with an APRA Award for Most Performed R&B / Soul Work for the Corby co-written ‘Higher’. He was recently nominated for “Best Single” and “Best New Artist” at the 2023 Rolling Stone Australia Awards, and “Aussie / Kiwi Legend Of The Year” at the 2023 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards.
