A.B Original is the creative collaboration between Briggs (Album of the Year recipient at the National Indigenous Music Awards 2015) and Trials, ARIA Award winning producer for Drapht, Illy, Hilltop Hoods, Seth Sentry and The Funkours among others.
Having their debut at Triple J’s Beat The Drum gig back in January 2015, with a powerful set that included ‘The Hunt’, a collaboration with Gurrummul. They’ve since been working on making music that explores the issue that are most important to them. Briggs and Trials come from the Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri tribes respectively and are socially conscious outspoken Indigenous artists.
They’ve released three songs with videos ready for their upcoming tour, supporting the Hilltop Hoods and if you’re heading along to the Adelaide Oakbank Groove In The Moo you can catch them there. Also, expect an album later in the year.
