You know the Briggs story, indigenous kid from regional Australia. Well, he is just about to drop his sophomore album Sheplife this Friday the 22nd of August.
Sheplife is the culmination of generations of observations, experiences and stories. The aggression is there but it’s tempered with a thoughtfulness that is always the separator between the good and great artists. As he said himself: “If The Blacklist was the punch in the face, Sheplife is why I punched you in the face.”
With appearances from Ill Bill, Joyride, Sietta and Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, Sheplife is the album by which Briggs will compared to for his whole career and he likes that, the good ones always thrive on pressure.
