A.GIRL is the family nickname given to 22 year old artist Hinenuiterangi Tairua. After the release of just three tracks she won Next Big Thing at the FBi Awards, won triple j Unearthed’s festival slot at Listen Out, was tipped as a rising star by UK’s Wonderland Mag and “one to watch” by Ticketmaster.
Raised in West Sydney, A.GIRL calls Australia home but the connection to her family’s Maori homeland of Te Hapua in New Zealand runs deep.
A.GIRL’s sound is rooted in r&b and soul with an effortless vocal flow and sing-rap style. More recently she has flexed her rap skills with acclaimed feature performances on triple j’s Like A Version, triple j’s Bars of Steel, and Red Bull 64 Bars. Her latest single We Them Boyz demonstrates a rock solid confidence at kicking it hard in the male dominated sub-genre of drill rap.
