A blazing female force in New Zealand music, Ria Hall is free-thinking, edgy and unapologetic.
Her sound fuses furious hip hop beats and richly layered vocals in English and Te Reo, creating an epic soundscape of many genres. With an enormous vocal range ability, she effortlessly transitions between styles.
This special performance, which features a full band, is an exclusive preview of Ria’s long-awaited debut album, scheduled for release this September.
Always in demand as a live performer, Ria has collaborated extensively with a diverse range of artists such as Fly My Pretties, Tiki Taane and Electric Wire Hustle.
Hall is a fearless female artist with resolute ideas for the future of home-grown music: “There is so much richness that New Zealand music can take to the world. We haven’t realised our own potential – and that’s exciting.”
