Baker Boy, real name Danzal Baker, released his first 2020 single ‘Move’ back in March, which saw him take out the number one spot on the National Indigenous Music Chart. He followed up with a music video for the track a few months later, directed by Freya Esders.
In July, Baker was announced as a finalist for the National Indigenous Music Awards, alongside Miiesha, Archie Roach, Thelma Plum and more. The ceremony took place over livestream last month, with Baker taking out the coveted Artist of the Year award, as well as Song of the Year and Film Clip of the Year, for his 2019 single ‘Meditjin’ with JessB.
‘Better Days’ collaborator Dallas Woods, who was also a NIMA finalist, released his first track of the year, ‘If It Glitters It’s Gold’ in May, as a follow up to last year’s ‘Chapter One’.
Sampa The Great, real name Sampa Tembo, has also been busy releasing music and performing livestreams this year. Earlier this month, she played a show from Zambia, during which she debuted new song, ‘This Is The Light’.
