Don't miss Baker Boy on his first headline tour of regional Victoria!  

Following a triumphant slot at the 2021 AFL Grand Final in Perth, Baker Boy had to reschedule his biggest national tour due to pandemic logistics. Eventually hitting the road was a "mind-blowing" experience. The Yolŋu superstar relishes keeping people on their toes and he’s revelling a nostalgic side with his first single since 2021’s acclaimed debut album Gela. The dancer, rapper and singer has reimagined Bernard Fanning's acoustic folk 'Wish You Well' as a feel-good hip-hop anthem alongside the Powderfinger frontman himself. 

Five years after he broke out with the empowering 'Cloud 9' and winning the first of successive National Indigenous Music Awards; Baker Boy is a pop culture phenom, amassing over 55m streams globally. In 2021 he received an Order of Australia Medal (OAM). That October, Baker Boy aired Gela – a chronicle of identity and personal growth – led by the ARIA Gold jam 'Cool As Hell'.  

A Triple J Feature Album, Gela landed at #3 on the ARIA Albums Chart and was included in prestigious 'Best Of The Year' lists (cue: The Guardian Australia, Tone Deaf, NME, Junkee, AU Review, Yamaha, Double J, Beat, Broadsheet) and nominated for the Australian Music Prize. Over summer, the festive 'My Mind', featuring G Flip, became Baker Boy's latest entry in the Hottest 100, while 'Ride', with a soulful Yirrmal, was shortlisted for the APRA Song Of The Year. 

Additional accolades included striking covers on NME Australia, The Big Issue, Spectrum (Melbourne & Sydney), features in Rolling Stone Magazine Australia, The Music, Pilerats, radio album features on 3RRR, 4ZZZ and tonnes of support across playlists on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Amazon Music & Soundcloud.
