Maisey Rika

Bio

If you were to take a scenic journey down the eastern coast of New Zealand, you would most likely hear the sounds of waves crashing on the beach, Tuis calling from the trees and the spiritual sound of Maisey Rika.

Hailing from Whakatane, this singer/songwriter has a powerful, yet majestic voice that captivates audiences worldwide. Maisey has been singing all her life, and at age 13 she began singing professionally. She recorded E Hine, a classic collection of Maori traditional songs. E Hine went double platinum and also won Best Maori Language Album at the NZ Music Awards. Maisey was also nominated for Best Female Vocalist in 1998 at just 15 years old.

Since then Maisey has toured the world as a lead vocalist with her traditional song and dance Kapahaka group. Performing in such countries as Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia and Australia.

Maisey Rika has now finished her highly anticipated EP of original songs and is working on a debut album to follow. Her brother and co-songwriter JJ, plays enchanting acoustic melodies to backup Maisey’s spine tingling fusion of English and Maori lyrics. Together with top New Zealand producers, Simon Halloway and Mahuia Bridgeman-Cooper, Maisey has developed a poetic soundscape of folk, soul and easy listening. Songs on her EP include her breakthrough YouTube introduction Children of Romania, a song based upon orphaned children in Romania.
