Busby Marou are fast becoming a National Australian Treasure.
Tom Busby (hailing from Queensland, Australia) and Jeremy Marou (from the beautiful Torres Strait Islands) have been playing music together for over a decade since their initial music connection at a pub in Rockhampton. There’s a potent chemistry that drives Busby Marou, and it is that unwritten agenda, a simple intangible understanding between them, that they will continue to drive into the exciting new chapter in their remarkable career.
Busby Marou have gained the reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working live bands best known for their distinctly Australian storytelling and gifted musicianship. Onstage, a key element is the intertwining of vocal interplay of two lifelong mates.
A point of difference for Busby Marou is the energy they put into touring regional Australia with fans from across the country loving the live experience in a Country beer barn equally as much as a slick inner-city theatre.
Busby Marou’s success includes millions of global streams, top 20 airplay & four ARIA Charting albums. Busby Marou’s self-titled album is certified ARIA Gold, while their most recent album The Great Divide and Farewell Fitzroy debuted in the Top 5 on and Postcards From The Shell House was Busby Marou’s first ARIA #1 album.
Busby Marou are now the face of Tourism and Events QLD and have recently signed a long term deal with Sony Music Australia.
This is the beginning and a new and powerful chapter of the story of two men, from two different worlds, on the same journey.
This demonstrates a is maturity as a result of sharing life experiences.
It’s the wisdom of love, heartbreak and grief.
It’s the education by mistakes.
It’s the knowledge of truth.
It’s the appreciation of the journey.
It’s the respect of culture.
Proud of where they came from, but more importantly proud of who they’ve become.
The modern face of Australia.
