The Merindas are based in Perth WA and are Australia’s Premier Soul Duo featuring
award winning artists Candice Lorrae and Kristel Kickett. The name ‘Merinda’ comes
from the Aboriginal Eora language - meaning beautiful woman and is a tribute to
their Indigenous heritage.
There is far more to this very talented duo than just their name. Candice and Kristel
are both amazing performers whose stars are on the rise as they send ripples across
the Australian Indigenous Music Scene.
The Merindas caught their big break in 2012 delivering a one off show for the
premiere of the ‘The Sapp ... hires’ Movie. They sold out their first band show three
months later and have been in high demand since.
In 2013 the group was nominated for a Sydney Deadly award in the category of
'Most Promising New Talent In Music'. They have supported some of Australia's
biggest stars including Jessica Mauboy, Nathaniel, Kasey Donovan, Christine Anu,
Troy Cassar-Daley and American Grammy Award Winning Artist, Brandy.
The Merindas most recent highlights have been their performance in Singapore,
opening for the Aussie BBQ as part of the Music Matters Live Festival and
performing live across the nation on NITV’s Marngrook Footy Show Grand Final in
The Merindas are a powerhouse of talent and entertainment.
