Young Black and Deadly Rising Stars 2016 EP out now!

Our latest Young Black & Deadly EP, featuring all the recordings from our young stars is now available! 

Young Black & Deadly (YBD) is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music talent development program run by Gadigal Information Service (Koori Radio) in Sydney.

After a round of talent quests held in 2015, a select group of young artists participated in a series of development and recording workshops at the Koori Radio studios.

At the culmination of the program, participants wrote and recorded a song with the assistance of program mentors. Songs from the 2015/16 program are collected on the 2016 Young Black & Deadly Rising Stars EP.

We hope you enjoy these great songs from some very deadly emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander musicians! 

You can BUY the CD, purchase tracks from iTunes, or sample all songs in their entirety on Sound Cloud.
