about

This is a dedication to Elijah Doughty from Kalgoorlie, WA.

"This song is a prayer for Elijah that his journey into the Dreaming is guided by the ancestors, and that our love will encompass his family through this time of mourning." – Archie Roach.


Song for Elijah (Wrap Our Arms Around You) is a message from the Dreaming. It is a track dedicated to a young soul whose love of animals, footy and natural knack for bush mechanics is deeply missed in his community. The mother of 14-year-old Aboriginal boy Elijah Doughty, whose death ignited protests across the country, has appealed for an end to racial divisions in Australia. This sparked a call to the collective consciousness of respected Australian musicians across the nation to join forces in support of Elijah and his family.

“We as singer/songwriters have a voice and in times like this I think we need to use it and give hope to those who think that all hope is lost. The journey to create a ripple for change started with the call out, so many amazing people came on board and over a 6 week period Song for Elijah was conceived.” – Kutcha Edwards.

All proceeds from the purchase of Song For Elijah (Wrap Our Arms Around You) will go towards supporting Elijah's family.
