A.GIRL is the moniker of 19 year old Hinenui-Terangi Tairua, a proud maori R&B singer/songwriter from Western Sydney. Although she calls Australia home the connection to her family’s maori homeland of Te Hapua in the north island of New Zealand runs deep. A.GIRL is a nickname given to her as a child by family.
A.GIRL’s debut single ‘2142’ garnered worldwide tastemaker support including The Word Is Bond (USA), Purple Sneakers, Life Without Andy and Cool Accidents. The track also received extensive radio support through rotation on FBi, triple j Unearthed and Radio Control (NZ), as well as multiple spins from triple j, Double J, 4ZZZ and RRR.
A.GIRL’s second single ‘Play’ taps into her sensual side as she brings out her inner goddess. In August ‘Play’ premiered on triple j’s Home & Hosed, received online love from various tastemakers including a feature on Red Bull Music, and was playlisted on Spotify’s New Music Fridays and R&B Connect. ‘Play’ was added to full rotation on Triple J after A.GIRL was named feature Artist of the Week on Triple J Unearthed.
A.GIRL made a grand entrance on the live scene by performing at BIGSOUND 2019 and was invited to perform at Listen Out in Sydney on October 5th.
