Didirri said: “I have always been interested in writers. Although the world of Eurovision is new to me, from the outside it seems to respect a well written song above all else. People seem to be free to express their art in whatever way they want. Personal experience inspires most of my own writing - all I hope to do is to help people express some part of themselves. I’m also over the moon to be joining the line-up with my friend Montaigne who I respect very much.”

In a matter of months, he toured the US and UK twice and shared the stage with well-known acts Vance Joy, Hozier, Tash Sultana, The Temper Trap and more.
Holding true to his mission to make music for“lovers & over thinkers,” Didirri’s songwriting approaches complex thoughts and feelings with charm and raw power - captivating listeners, magnifying important issues and engaging crowds to feel, move, think, heal and singalong.
Produced by Dann Hume (Tash Sultana, Troye Sivan, Matt Corby, Amy Shark), ‘Blue Mood Rising’ is the first taste of new music from the Melbourne-based artist’s upcoming release, and first release via his new label home Nettwerk.
