Australian Female R&B Singers

Despite urban music of Australia being led by the country’s top rap stars, like Iggy Azalea and The Kid LAROI, R&B artists of Australia, more specifically Australian female R&B singers, have proven that the stars of music are much more than the nation’s local Aussie pop, rock, and hip-hop music artists. 

With R&B bands and groups of the 1990s and 2000s like Kulcha, Shakaya, and Hiatus Kaiyote and solo artists of previous generations like Nai Palm, Deni Hines, Selwyn, Paulini, Israel Cruz, or J-Wess, R&B music has been centered in Australia for quite some time now. While rhythm and blues has actively been a participant of Australian music over the past few decades with multiple artists flourishing and making a name for themselves, no era or generation can be compared to today’s presence of local, national, and even international Australian female R&B singers.

Singers like Larissa Lambert who transitioned from adding her own twist to classic R&B tracks, like SWV’s “Weak” and Mariah Carey’s “My All,” to becoming a leading artist. Providing a soul to a landscape of repetitive sounds, Kaiit took the music world by storm with the hit “Miss Shiney.” Immediately making an impact, Amarni has shined as an Aussie R&B singer since her initial debut of “Pretty Little Thing” (2018). The staple for Samoan culture and urban music, Bina Butta has placed herself in the ears of music lovers through tracks like “Lady Love,” “One Call Away,” and “Woman.”

Australian female R&B artists like the relaxing vibes and invigorating styles of Tash Palmer. Emily Wurramara grabbed the attention of Australians with projects like Black Smoke (2016) and Milyakburra (2018), all while representing her native and indigenous heritage. The heartfelt melodies of Odette as she emboldens listeners with her eccentric style. Western Sydney native A.Girl is among the most versatile, showcasing the ability to switch between various genres. Isadaora one of the top rising talents, especially with her collaboration with Faydee on “Call Me Habibi,” alongside songs like “Ride 4 Me,” “But Friends Don’t Do This,” and “Player.”

With artists like Olivia Escuyos adding much value to Australian R&B by producing and songwriting for numerous top artists, before making her own passage into a solo career. The perfection of singers like Milan Ring and Maya Hirasedo, the prominence of Samoan, Islander, and indigenous artists like Becca Hatch and Miiesha, and the opportunity to witness stars in the making like Billymaree and Jazzy K, Australian female R&B singers have created a path of excellence. As R&B music is gaining momentum and the over saturation and commercialization of rap and hip hop music is harming the culture, there will be multiple R&B acts of Australia that will become international stars and will gain global recognition.
