Caroline Kell is a proud Mbarbrum women who was born and raised on Kulin Lands. She is the Founder and Managing Director of Blak Wattle Coaching and Consulting. Caroline is a Former Counsellor and Executive Director who is deeply passionate about the social emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

In this episode, Caroline welcomes Thomas Busby and proud Torres Strait Islander man, and Jeremy Marou from Busby Marou to the podcast. From playing in a Rockhampton (Darumbal land)  pub for a couple of beers, to having three Top 5 albums on the ARIA charts over an impressive 15 year music career, the journey of Busby Marou is certainly an inspirational one. In this episode, Caroline talks with this down to earth and dynamic duo, about the release of their fifth studio album, Blood Red.

Thomas and Jeremy get personal and yarn everything from overcoming imposter syndrome, to how their close bond and understanding of each other’s style helps them work together as band mates. Tom and Jeremy also touch on what seems like an impossible task – balancing children with work in an industry that often sees you hitting the road for weeks on tour.

Listeners will also get to hear some favourite moments of their expansive career, including an impromptu recording session in South Carolina with Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish, meeting Dolly Parton to being a supporting act for Elton John!
