Didirri

Didirri's full name is Diddiri Peters. He lives near Melbourne in Australia. As a storyteller he adores older artists such as Elton John and Joni Mitchell. His contemporary role model is Bon Iver. Peters primarily makes music because he wants to get to know himself better. ‘My songs are a way to discover the golden rules of my existence.’ His mentor is his father Barry, whose profession involves visiting nursery schools with an educational programme of songs. As a teenager, Didirri joined him on his travels and learned with his eyes and ears. ‘He taught me how to address an audience as if it's a good friend.’ While Didirri is just starting out, the level of his fragile compositions is already stunning. A hallmark of real talent.
