From the underground Hip hop/RnB scene of Western Sydney A.GIRL has emerged into national recognition with a swag of raw talent, attention-grabbing moments of musical brilliance and a sing-rap style uniquely hers. Raised in Australia, A.GIRL also proudly owns her Maori heritage.
A.GIRL is the family nickname given to this 22 year old artist – real name Hinenuiterangi Tairua. After the release of just three tracks she was the Winner of Next Big Thing at the FBi Awards, winner of triple j Unearthed’s festival slot at Listen Out, was tipped as a rising star by UK’s Wonderland Mag and listed as “one to watch” by Ticketmaster.
A.GIRL’s sound is rooted in r&b and soul but 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 which solidified herself as an MC with a unifying message ripe for the age we live in – celebrating cultural, racial & gender diversity with outspoken inclusion.
Late last year, A.GIRL dropped a track with a drill-flavoured sound, ‘We Them Boyz’ featuring Jaecy and she featured on a west-coast Cali track ‘Ride or Die’ with Sydney Yungins.
A.GIRL has had a promising start to 2022. She featured on triple j’s LIKE A VERSION early March and was tipped by host Ebony Boadu as her “favourite Like A Version ever!” A.GIRL is also proving to be a favourite on Australia’s live hip hop circuit that is emerging from lockdown: on tour with Aussie grime icon Chillinit on his sold out national tour; has shows coming up with the billion-streaming break-out rapper Masked Wolf; was hand-picked by BLESSED for his self-curated show in Parramatta; and just announced her very own headline show at Sydney Opera House on May 29th as part of VIVID Festival – tickets on sale now.
