Ricki-Lee is a multi-platinum selling, ARIA Award nominated Singer/ Songwriter and is one of Australia’s most loved popstars. Since she was first discovered at just 18 years old when she auditioned for Australian Idol in 2004, she has gone on to sell millions of records in Australia and around the world with 15x ARIA Top 20 hit singles including 4x #1’s on the ARIA Dance Chart & UK Club Charts, 3x ARIA Top 10 Albums and a Top 10 Album on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in Japan as well as 5x Gold, 4x Platinum and 2x Double Platinum Certifications and over 35 million streams of her music.
As a songwriter, Ricki-Lee has collaborated with and written hit songs with some of the biggest international hit songwriters and producers in the world – and aside from her chart success, her songs have been used in huge Hollywood films like Sex & The City 2 (Can’t Touch It) and Alvin & The Chipmunks (All We Need Is Love) and have also been synced all around the world on TV Commercials and in TV shows like The Bachelor in the US (All We Need is Love), The Voice Australia (Do It Like That), Dancing With The Stars US, So You Think You Can Dance US and Strictly Come Dancing UK (Can’t Touch It and In The Mood) to name a few.

From her own sold-out shows on tour across Australia and Japan, and touring the country with Jason Derulo and The Backstreet Boys – to performing at the Commonwealth Games, the NRL & AFL Grand Finals, or the Formula 1 and Australian Open – to a live tv performance with an orchestra or an intimate acoustic show, or a fully choreographed show with her band and dancers – she really has done it all.
