Vayne performing at Semi Permanent Aotearoa 2020
Vayne is one of the fastest rising voices of Aotearoa New Zealand hip-hop today.

Since its July release, her debut EP Gutta Girl has spread like wildfire around the music community with its hard-hitting emotional catharticism and ambient production. Teaming up with Montell2099, LMC and Church Leon, the Māori rap artist’s glowing debut is a nod to the Gutta Girl in all of us.

Since appearing on the scene in 2019 with underground bangers ‘waitwait!’, ‘YUCK’ and ‘I’ll Be Fine’, turning heads left right and center with her heavy, upfront and honest delivery, Vayne continues to push the envelope with her raw and inventive craft.

Having grown a notorious following from packing out Karangahape Road venues Whammy and Neck of the Woods, to performing at The Others Way, FOMO and Six60 earlier this year, Vayne season is on.

“With an attitude that has her femininity and masculinity sitting on both sides of the coin, you’ll find the young rapper has just as much in common with The Slits as she does City Girls… It’s rare to come by artists like Vayne which is why she shines so bright.”
