Born into one of Kuranda's longest running reggae bands, Koahlition, Rikaela is the latest budding roots artist to emerge from the far northern rainforest town. Rikaela’s music reflects her upbringing in a creative tropical paradise - a love of the natural world, the arts and first nations culture. She has a natural ability for writing and performing soulful positive music, while her delivery is laidback and seemingly effortless. In 2019 Rikaela started work for Island Vibe and Brisbane music label Rudekat Records and by November 2019 started work on her debut EP. Enlisting a selection of Brisbane musical talent, including Peter G (Golden Sound), Travis Jenkins (Dreamboat 1Dragon 2Dragon), Rudi Quinzalez (Rudekat Sound, Madtones), producer Anthony StayNice Martino, Winston Chadwick (Die Rude, Schoolfight, Crashcats) her 7 track EP is due for release on all platforms in December 2020.
