Holding true to his mission to make music for ‘Lovers & Overthinkers’, Didirri’s song-writing approaches complex thoughts and feelings with charm and raw power – captivating listeners, magnifying important issues and engaging crowds to feel, move, think, heal and singalong.
After releasing his debut EP “Measurements” just last year, Didirri has had a massive 12 months. From a collective 30 million streams on the EP, to playing Splendour In The Grass, to having 4x singles added to triple j rotation, to packing his bag and touring the US and UK twice in under 6 months.
As well as playing The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Latitude Festival in Suffolk, and Primavera Sounds in Barcelona, Didirri also played a series of shows across Europe only to return home to sell out multiple tours across Australia, including 170 Russell, and 2x Corner Hotel shows which he filmed and recorded for an intimate Live EP.
The achievements are impressive and humbling, and ultimately highlight that no matter the language, the location, the age, on a small stage or large, there’s something about Didirri’s music that connects with people in a really special way. His lyrics open the door usher you into his mind, connecting with listeners on a level rarely seen in modern music. The connection is honest, it’s real, it’s an invitation.
After spending some time in the studio recording with legendary producer Dann Hume (Amy Shark, Matt Corby, Tash Sultana, Troye Sivan), Didirri returns with his most memorable and magnetic tune yet – “Blue Mood Rising“.
“I have always been wary of being led down the garden path. However, it is a beautiful path to tread. It is a colourful and engaging life to lead but only when walked by you. Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and thought that you were different back then? Has your confidence changed? Are you easily shaken now? But, how can your feet be swept away if you have them firmly on the ground by your own decision?”

Bigger, deeper, and more epic than ever before, “Blue Mood Rising” is a thunderstorm of lush guitar tones, slow building drums, and a harmony of backing vocals building to a crescendo led by Didirri’s soaring voice as it takes you on a journey of self-reflection:
“Remember who you do this for. Whatever ‘this’ is. There will be others that help you down the path but remember where your core is. Your self-worth should be based on your own choices. If there is ever a crack to appear in your footing, you’ll feel it.
You’ll feel a blue mood rising before it appears.” – Didirri
