In May 2022, a first taste of an expansive trove of new music from Thelma Plum is set to be released. ‘Backseat Of My Mind’ is an almost purpose built road-trip anthem, complimented by a driving band that perfectly captures the song’s metaphor: life is the journey, but always travel with memories of the past.

And this song is just the start of another adventure. Thelma is preparing to reveal more. Thelma has been writing and recording music in London & Brisbane for her forthcoming and as-yet-unannounced ‘Meanjin’ EP and 2023 sophomore album. 

Thelma Plum is a Gamilaraay woman, musician and creator. She grew up in Brisbane and spent many of her childhood years on her Grandparents’ farm in Delungra, a small country town in rural New South Wales.
She has been making music her whole life and has told one chapter with her debut album Better in Blak a story about culture, heritage, love, and pain. With incredible strength, courage and heartbreaking tenderness, her debut album captures so deftly what it’s like to be a young Aboriginal woman in Australia. The album became one of the most successful albums of 2019, nominated for 7 Arias and spawning 3 Platinum and one Gold singles. The title track “Better in Blak” came in the top 10 of the Triple J Hottest 100, the highest result ever for an Indigenous artist at the time, as well as winning the prestigious Vanda and Young “Song of the Year” award.

Far from receding from the public eye, she and her music have been involved in high profile campaigns for White Shirt Day and a number of household brands; for Netflix’s ‘Back To The Outback’ animated feature film (starring Tim Minchin and Eric Bana); press commitments such as recently being the cover artist for In-Style Magazine’s re-launch. 

The adventure is always. And there is much more to come, and Thelma looks forward to you buckling up and joining her for the ride!
