With the release of her debut self-titled EP, Ria Hall blasted onto the NZ music scene as a female force to be reckoned with. Her fusion of furious hip hop beats with richly layered vocals in English and Maori, has won awards and critical acclaim.
Hall is a powerful live performer, showcasing her talent locally and internationally. She has an enormous vocal range with the ability to effortlessly transition between styles. Ria has collaborated with a diverse range of artists and producers such as J. Williams, Fly My Pretties and Tiki Taane. Her most recent duet with Stan Walker Like it’s over, explored a more pop-dance hall sound and was released as a single on his latest album Inventing Myself.
Most recently, Ria’s collaboration on Aotearoa peaked at #2 on the RIANZ charts. Recently signed up by Sony NZ, she has been working on new material with Stan Walker, Ginny Blackmore, Vince Harder and P Money.
