New Zealand R&B Artists

List of the Best New Zealand R&B Singers

In the depths of the Oceania resides a sizeable roster of New Zealand R&B artists. Despite being overshadowed by Australia’s music scene and other larger English markets of R&B music, New Zealand R&B singers are not just only every bit as skilled as the world’s leading R&B artists, but rhythm and blues of New Zealand offers much authenticity with artists not being compromised to the politics of the industry, but instead creating their own natural styles of music.

A country that has produced pop sensations like Lorde or is home to native genres like Māori music and Kiwi music, New Zealand is abundant in talent. With a wide array of musical genres being heard across New Zealand, rhythm and blues has become a shining light to New Zealand’s urban music scene.

At the lead are New Zealand R&B artists like the genre bending and the style blending Benee, an artist whose sound and style knows no limits. The smooth sounding veteran Janine, a singer that has been carrying R&B music within New Zealand long before the global rise. The varied tones of harmonies of Stan Walker, pop sensation and former Australian Idol winner. The small town hero of Teeks, a man with a soulful voice that often combines the elements of R&B, jazz, folk, and soul.

The lineup of New Zealand R&B singers brings the blends of hip-hop and R&B from Donell Lewis and Victor J Sefo, two of New Zealand’s most talented. The powerful voice of Olivia Foa’i, the lady who was introduced to the world for her lead singing on Disney’s Moana. The soulful, blending, emotive styles of Louis Baker. From Chart topping artists like Muroki to award-winning stars like Deva Mahal, New Zealand’s R&B scene is not only among the most adept, but also provides a broad spectrum of New Zealand’s culture and the country’s wide range of talent.
