2022 has been a creatively fruitful year for Mo’ju...
On top of completing their fourth studio LP, they completed a national sold-out stadium tour with hip hop icons Hilltop Hoods, picked up a Music Victoria Award nomination for Best, Soul, Funk, RnB, or Gospel release, a NIMA Award nomination for Song of The Year, filmed a live session at Bakehouse Studios and were bestowed the coveted crown of Rainbow Champion in conjunction with WorldPride for their outstanding contribution to Australian LGBTQIA+ community and culture. That, and sets at Womad, Splendour In The Grass, St Kilda Fest and VIVID Sydney.
In November they head to Hanging Rock to play First And Forever, a day-long festival celebrating Blak excellence.
2023 will be here before you know it, and is already shaping up to be another important year. Starting with a special evening that sees them joined on stage by the ethereal sounds of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Opera House for an exclusive show for Sydney World Pride, they’ll then head to VIC for another special one-off that sees Mo’Ju partner with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for an evening at Hamer Hall.

They’ve also just released the new single Change Has To Come, the first from the upcoming fourth studio LP, due March 2023 from the Naarm-based musician, songwriter, storyteller advocate and Third Culture Kid (Filipino/Wiradjuri).
Change Has To Come is a plea to step away from the screens and the keyboards, to look up and out, and take your shouting to the streets to fight for political change. But most of all it is an appeal for communities to unite and come together in the physical world.
