We recently had another opportunity to watch this fantastic duo on stage and thoroughly enjoyed their performance. We love the way they interact with the audience and get everybody involved, from singing along to choreographed dance moves. Great show! ”

The Merindas  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 Sapphires’ 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 Melbourne.

The Merindas are a powerhouse of talent and entertainment. Building on their already expanding fan base the group just released their new single titled ‘We Sing Until Sunrise’.


Multi-Award winning artists, Candice Lorrae and Kristel Kickett are Western Australia's Premier Dreamtime Soul Duo. 
The Merindas have shared the stage with Australia’s biggest stars, including Archie Roach, Kasey Donovan, Christine Anu, Jessica Mauboy, Nathaniel, Dan Sultan, Isaiah Firebrace, Troy Casser-Daley and International R&B Grammy Award Winning Artist, Brandy. 
They are a “must see” for anyone interested in a high-energy, inspirational and authentic Soul Music Experience.
