Budjerah has joined the Mushroom Music Publishing roster.

Lauded as one of the country’s finest new voices, the breakthrough teen was identified by the late Mushroom Group founder and chairman Michael Gudinski as a star-in-waiting.

Indeed, the 19-year-old singer and songwriter performed on the second edition of Gudinski’s Music From the Home Front, which aired on ANZAC Day eve.

“From the first time we heard Budjerah’s voice, we knew we had to work with him. We have been following his progression over the last couple of years and we are in love with his song writing and artistry,” comments Linda Bosidis, Managing Director, Mushroom Music.

Gudinski was “a huge fan of his storytelling and incredible vocal talent. We could not be happier to be working with Budjerah and his team. This one is for you MG!”

His self-titled debut EP was released in March via Warner Music Australia and was met with critical success.
