Maybe it’s growing up in a sleepy Far North Queensland town of Innisfail. Maybe it’s the sweaty tropical heat the region experiences for most of the year.
Whatever it is, it’s taken eight long years for Savo to bring forward his debut full-length mixtape release, but like the title says... it’s been Worth The Wait.
A solid 12 months in the making, the 21-track offering would be fast on track to Gold sales with over 30,000 downloads despite only dropping on April 15 – if he hadn’t done the good thing and given it away for free! Despite the impressive accolades leading up to its release – including racking up regular triple j unearthed chart appearances including the hallowed No.1 for his sombre anthem Zachary’s Song and a massive 1 million Soundcloud plays – Worth The Wait has provided the tipping point for this talented artist to finally collect his long-awaited dues.
With the stats exploding and the industry circling, it was only a matter of time before a deal was done and the lucky winner is Bomb Squad Presents, a boutique label operated by Platinum-selling party boys Bombs Away.
But if you know Savo, you’ll know he isn’t really one for the stats – you only need to listen to Worth The Wait’s Keyboard Warriors to know exactly how he feels on the issue!
Free to confidently explore all aspects of artistic expression across his music, this raw yet polished lyricist has found the perfect home and partnership, ensuring next time, the sales will be very real.
With his rabid internet following behind him, and a solid recording home in place, Savo is currently locked in the studio alongside Australia's A-list hip hop producers working on his first release on Bomb Squad Presents. At this point, it might be a little cliché to say it... but it’ll be worth the wait.
