Young Gamilaraay singer/songwriter Thelma Plum has enjoyed a whirlwind 12 months: she's dropped her debut album Better in Blak (which placed second in the triple j 'Album of the Year' listener's poll and was nominated for six ARIAs, no biggie); she has been streamed more than than 30 million times; and she's performed a sold-out tour and London show.

And apparently there's no slowing down. Plum has just announced a national tour, Homecoming Queenrunning from May to July this year. The tour announce, follows Thelma’s recent inclusion in the 2020 Splendour in the Grass line up.

"The last year has been pretty crazy for me since people started to hear Better in Blak, both the song and the album, and it’s been amazing to have the stories which were inside my head resonate with so many people," Plum says.

"It’s given me the opportunity to do some travelling and touring overseas, but it wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t celebrate where we are going, but more importantly where we have been, I cannot wait to return and take my little band family and the wonderful Kira Puru on the road for the Homecoming Queen tour."
