East Journey - Emu

East Journey - Emu
Born into rock royalty the multi-NIMA Award winning band East Journey from N.E. Arnhem Land have now collaborated with their forefathers and mentors Yothu Yindi on an EP titled The Genesis Project [out on Feb 6]. Produced by Stevie Salas [Mick Jagger, Aerosmith, Parliament Funk, Justin Timberlake], The Genesis Project features five full songs woven together with five snippets of songlines important to the Yolgnu culture.

'Emu" is the next song to be released digitally as a single whilst the EP is available both digitally and physically. Current radio track Song of Arnhem Land debuted at No.1 on the AMRAP chart upon its release late last year. It also obtained national airplay across the ABC local radio network and has been championed by Double j.

East Journey made a firm impression with debut album Guwak in 2012. They accrued national airplay, won numerous NIMA awards, gained critical reviews, festival slots, and lead-singer Rrawun Maymuru penned the song Bayini giving Gurrumul his first No.1 ARIA Chart. Importantly East Journey established themselves as the No. 1 Indigenous live rock act to watch out for in Australia.
