To celebrate the release of new single and video, Raw Stuff, Melbourne songwriter Didirri has announced a headline tour of the country. 

The tour will kick off in Sydney this April, before moving through Newcastle, Warrnambool, Melbourne, Brisbane and Kingscliff.  

"For the first time in my life, I was skipping Christmas. I was feeling very, very guilty about it. My passion for creative work had taken over too much of my life, so there I was, on the other side of the planet.” Didirri said of Raw Stuff.

“Though I was pursuing my creative goals, I was far from my family and friends. It was difficult to open up to someone I cared about back home. I couldn’t explain the mixed bag of emotions that was weighing me down so I gave up on the song quickly. It didn’t feel finished.

"Two years later I’m in the studio… the phone rings and it’s the person I had felt cut off from that year I skipped Christmas. They said they had felt the same, and had found it hard to open up as well. And that they were skipping Christmas this year.

"I instantly remembered the half-written song I never finished, and suddenly it all made sense. Part two.

"Raw Stuff instantly falls into two parts. The first half is my side of miscommunication, and the second my reaction to hearing they felt the same."

The announce comes ahead of Didirri's participation in the Eurovision: Australia Decides event next week where he will compete to represent the country at the 2020 Eurovision song contest, while he will also perform at this year's SXSW.
