In our latest series, Feats, we dive into the standout moments that have shaped some of the greatest artists in Australia. From triumphs to tribulations, we’ll take you through the highs and lows that have led them to where they are today.

Armed with some of his go-to paraphernalia for creative living, his headphones and notebook, we followed DOBBY, a proud Filipino and Aboriginal musician, on a wild ride around his local haunts as he discussed key turning points in his career that led him to where he is today. And let us tell you, it’s a journey you won’t soon forget.

DOBBY’s journey in the music industry is a testament to the power of authenticity, perseverance, and creative risk-taking, and taking a closer look at his pivotal moments reveals a compelling story of a trailblazing artist who stayed true to himself and his heritage.

DOBBY is not just a musician, he’s a force of nature. He blends hip hop, classical, and jazz in a unique and powerful way, breaking barriers and crushing expectations at every turn. But his journey wasn’t always easy. It took the support of his community, his family, and his teachers to help him become the truest version of himself, both in music and in life.

It all started with DOBBY’s teachers, who saw something special in him from the very beginning. They brought together classical music, jazz drums, and hip hop vocals in a way that no one had ever seen before. They taught DOBBY to take risks, to blend genres, and to find his own voice in the process. And it was that voice that would soon captivate audiences around the world.

But it wasn’t just his teachers who played a pivotal role in DOBBY’s journey. A blank notebook and a DIY music video were all it took for DOBBY to make a name for himself. He showed the world what he was capable of with nothing but his raw talent and determination. And he did it all on his own terms.

DOBBY also found inspiration in the creative hub of Redfern, the beating heart of Aboriginal Sydney. Just to prove that inspiration come sin many forms, DOBBY was inspired to create his iconic song, “Warrangu River Story”  from a 6am wake-up call from a Pied Butcher Bird’s tri-tone melody, a testament to DOBBY’s ability to turn even the most unexpected moments into something beautiful and meaningful. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade!

Through all of these standout moments, DOBBY never lost sight of his roots or his passion. He stayed true to himself and his heritage, and it’s this unapologetic authenticity that makes him such a trailblazer in the music industry. He inspires us to find our own voices, our own passions, and our own paths, just like he did.

So, buckle up and get ready to take a ride through the five pivotal moments that led DOBBY to where he is today. It’s a journey filled with creativity, perseverance, and a whole lot of heart – everything that makes DOBBY the icon he is today.
