Associated with melodic tendencies and a refreshing blend of elegance meets edge, Raquel Abolins-Reid is indie-pop singer RIIKI.
With a childhood centred around the performing arts, RIIKI’s vibrant persona on stage sets her apart from others in her genre. Now with a shiny new deal signed with global agency WME, RIIKI is ready to deliver her debut headline shows.
Raised in New Zealand’s creative capital city and aged just 21, RIIKI is young but has so much to offer. Following debut single ‘One Day’, RIIKI’s second release ’High Heights’ was co-produced by Simon Gooding (projects include P!nk, Dua Lipa and Migos), appeared on various NZ charts and garnered international media attention. Since then, RIIKI has continued to receive attention with follow-up singles ‘Share Your Luv’ and her most recent release ‘Good Times’ which landed in the #1 spot on the Hot NZ Singles Chart.
Not deterred by launching her career while the world faces a global pandemic, RIIKI says, “I know that what I am working on right now will really mean something to others and I can’t wait for people to feel what I feel”.
