NRG Rising


NRG Rising is the world’s first mother and daughters trio to front fresh, fun and conscious reggae, showcasing soulful vocals & soothing harmonies. NRG Rising's fresh, female reggae has two main themes; one of fun, good times and love, and the other sharing messages that support self determination through personal development, including messages of belief, strength, and understanding. The debut album “From Darkness To Light” rings true to the two main themes, containing celebratory, upbeat melodies, heart-warming vibes and thought-provoking lyrics that are sure to become quick favourites.

NRG Rising has a strong foundation that is witnessed daily as the band creates music, practices for their performances, performs on stage, and goes about achieving their ambitious musical goals. The NRG Rising is guided by the following principles;

• To bring some fresh female, sassy feels, and messages and music to the national and international reggae music scene
• To support the empowerment and rangatiratanga (self determination) of all people around the world, one by one
• To support and promote the development of unique NZ and Pacific reggae through whakawhanaungatanga (extended family relationships)
• To connect and share with our indigenous brothers and sisters, their culture and music, and together share it with the world
• To promote and celebrate contemporary music with unique traditional cultural flavours
