A curator residency at new Brisbane venue The Triffid has also been locked in for Howells. She will appear at the venue every Sunday from 2 to 8pm.

Howells, who presents the Roots N All segment on triple j, said she was "super excited" about the 123 deal.

"I've been DJing for quite a while now, but having these legends on my team is the next step. Can't wait! It's gonna be fun!"

123's Regan Lethbridge, also a member of soulful rock outfit Bonjah said: "We are thrilled to have Sarah join the 123 Agency family, we admire what she does on triple j &  the DJ world , she has awesome taste in music we are stoked to have the opportunity to look after her bookings in 2015."
