There is no stronger tradition in this country than music. For thousands of years, music has carried the stories and history of Australia. And now those stories have a new Home.

Supported by Q Music and Virgin Australia, this project not only celebrates these artists’ remarkable talents, it helps expose people from around the world to the remarkable and truly unique music they create.

Scan through the Featured Artists pages and you will not only experience true national treasures like Christine Anu, Gurrumul, Kev Carmody and Bart Willoughby, you will discover the new talent keeping Australia’s music heritage alive – artists like The Coldwater BandRobbie MillerThelma Plum, Dewayne Everett-smith, and The Medics.

Home Volume 7 contains songs from sixteen acts – the list is one of the most comprehensive diverse line-ups to date, with a wide range of genres and styles. Featured on the 2016 edition are Luke Daniel Peacock, Emily Wurramara, A.B. Original, Tia Gostelow, Birdz/Jimblah, Catherine Satour, King Social, and many more.

We hope you enjoy delving into the real sound of Australia.
