As a pivotal member of the hugely successful band, Valkyrie, and as one of the best guitarists in the game, Rebel Reid is a widely respected musician in Aotearoa’s music community.

Rebel has now gone solo and has just released a new EP  ‘HIRIA’ in dedication to her beloved late mum. 

Here is Rebel to  introduce her new bilingual waiata  ‘Dancing In The Stars’.

“I was really struggling with my grief so I decided to shut off all the devices and TV and go back to what I love doing most - other than music - reading! I picked up my book ‘Navigating The Stars’ by the wizard Witi Ihimaera and as soon as I laid my mind and thoughts to his words, I felt comfort and peace.”
