Troy Cassar-Daley

Set times


Troy Cassar-Daley has released 11 studio albums throughout his thirty years of making music. He is a proud Gumbaynggirr/Bundjalung man who comes from a long line of storytellers and shares his musicianship with so many artists across different styles of music.

Troy’s latest album ‘The World Today’ released March 2021 has been touted as his best album yet, debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country chart, #1 on the ARIA All Australian chart and #3 on the overall ARIA chart, Troy’s highest solo chart position in his career. His passion to pen stories about this land and what lies at the heart of it has been a driving force in his career. Troy has been awarded numerous accolades including 37 Golden Guitars, 4 ARIAs, 3 APRA Song of the Year awards, 9 Deadlys (Australian Indigenous Artist Awards), 4 CMAA Entertainer of the Year awards plus 2 NIMAs (National Indigenous Music Awards).

In 2017 Troy was honoured as the 50th inductee into the prestigious Australasian Roll Of Renown. He has had numerous gold and platinum albums and achieved a staggering 32 Number 1 chart singles. His songs have been the soundtrack to the everyday triumphs, struggles and good times for Australians from our small towns to the big cities. ‘The World Today’ is an artistic and personal triumph. The result is arguably one of the most confronting records in his discography, but easily one of the most breathtaking. Equally personal and resounding, Cassar-Daley crafts an almost flawless collection of songs within the space of an hour, touching upon topics that range from the introspective to the quietly exuberant while providing an overarching feeling of positivity to the darkness.
