“Australia’s Most Important Voice” - Rolling Stone Australia
The Gospel Album is Gurrumul’s third studio album. It is a uniquely Indigenous approach to gospel music, combining new original hymns and reworkings of the Methodist gospel songs from his home on Elcho Island, Northern Territory. The album was the winner of the Best World Album category at the 2015 ARIA awards, and album includes a duet with fellow Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly on the much-loved hymn Amazing Grace.
Born blind, the Indigenous Australian singer/songwriter Gurrumul grew up as a member of the Gumatj clan on Elcho Island, off the coast of tropical North East Arnhem land in Australia’s Northern Territory. Gurrumul’s songs speak of identity, spirit, connection with the land, the elements and the ancestral beings to whom he is related. His fragile but uniquely emotive high tenor voice and aura-like persona elicit feelings of peace and longing in listeners.
Gurrumul first came to the world’s attention when his self-titled debut album Gurrumul was released to international acclaim in 2008. His angelic voice connected with fans the world over, including such notable names as Elton John, will.I.am, Sting, Gary Barlow, Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder. Half a million copies of Gurrumul have been sold worldwide.
Gurrumul has performed for Her Majesty the Queen of England, US President Barack Obama, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark. He was one of only two Australian performers at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace.
Following a long battle with illness, Gurrumul passed away in 2017 at Royal Darwin Hospital at the age of 46.
