Young Aussie singer Budjerah is a talent to be reckoned with. Not many artists could achieve his level of success in the span of just two years — the Coodjinburra musician was signed with Warner Music, released two EPs, toured with Vance Joy, featured on an Ed Sheeran single, and won two Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards and a National Indigenous Music Award. But above all of his glittering achievements, what shines through most is Budjerah’s genuine warmth and infectious optimism. It’s this sunny disposition that floats seamlessly into his music. Hot off a whirlwind weekend of winning at the ARIA Awards and GQ Men of the Year Awards, followed by a performance at the all-Indigenous First & Forever festival, Budjerah took Exceptional ALIEN around Regional Victoria for our special made in partnership with Visit Victoria.
