Thomas and Jeremy, both parts of Busby Marou never really fit into the traditional music industry mould. They’ve always committed to taking the untrodden path, Trusting their Spirit upon their journey.
When they were approached to record their latest album in shiny, expensive recording studios, they knocked it back. Choosing instead their own sound, embracing recording it in spaces that expressed their story, their way; like villages at Murri Island and regional towns that they hold close to their heart.
It is the bold decisions they make as artists that have led them here. A #1 ARIA album, multiple ARIA nominations, 4x APRA awards and many more accolades later, Busby Marou are the embodiment of doing thing their way, and we respect that.
Matt is renowned as an artist who without hesitation Trusts his Spirit. He chooses his own path and never lets people dictate the music he makes.
Catapulted into Australian zeitgeist through Idol, Matt soon realised the world of processed pop was not ‘him’. He fought to get out of his record deal. He moved to LA, under the promise of something better. But again was forced into a ‘sound’, into writing music that didn’t represent who he wanted to be. So again, Matt walked away. This was twice he was given the ‘easy’ path to success, but it wasn’t his path. So he didn’t take it.
He moved back to Australia to play small venues again. Moved out of the city into nature where he feels at home. Today, Matt makes music for him & his fans, No one else. And that’s something we can get behind.
