Bio

Check out the artist's profiles: Kee'ahn, Kobie Dee & River Boy!

During NAIDOC Week, we teed up a collab between three First Nations legends. Gamilaroi rapper Kobie Dee, Kuku Yalanji, Jirrbal and Badu Island songbird Kee'ahn and Northern Rivers beatmaker River Boy joined forces and crafted an absolute stunner of a song called 'Sunrise'.

Most impressive of all, they whipped it up in less than a week!

The track sees the trio each bring something special of their own - Kobie's heartaching lyrics take charge in the verses before Kee'ahn's timeless, soulful vocals front up in the chorus. Underneath it all lays River Boy's lush and sparkly production, complete with a lowkey beat and touches of ambient sounds. It's seriously beautiful stuff.

Love the way that the three of you have come together so harmoniously on this one. As ever, Kobie Dee brings that heartfelt energy! Kee'ahn's vocal is full of soul and authenticity. Meanwhile you've got some subtle production touches from River Boy.

KD's verse just warms your heart and your skin, really wearing his heart on his sleeve. Kee'ahn's chorus is so lush and really feels like the sun rising up and pushing through the clouds. River Boy ties it all together with his sparkling island beats. What a winner guys, congrats!

Stunning effort, a true testament here; Proof of what's possible when talented artists at their sharpest work together to turn something around in less than a week is impressive to say the least. Everything balances out like the perfect day, kicked off by a gorgeous Sunrise. Serving facts but mostly hope.
