Audie B is a French-Australian rap artist and dancer currently based in Paris. Born of parents passionate about music and travel, Audie B made her first steps in Paris and began dancing at three years old. Four years later, her progress came to a temporary halt when her parents separated. Due to their separation, she relocated to the coastal city of Newcastle, near Sydney with her mother.
Not wanting to interfere with Audie’s momentum, her mother took on multiple jobs to help her daughter continue her dance education. She joined Royal Academy of Dance classical ballet classes at the age of nine. She then took up modern jazz and contemporary dance under the direction of Marie Walton-Mahon at the National College of Dance.
Dance was the outlet that filled the void Audie felt through dealing with her father’s absence. Even when she went back to France to visit, she ultimately returned to Australia which would often widen that void. But Newcastle life, people, and culture would quickly become a huge part of Audie’s identity and influence on her future music.
Through performing, Audie became pulled into music, which quickly became the outlet that fueled her even ahead of dance.
And hip hop, especially, became her #1 focus. Audie began studying rap artists from around the world, but became especially drawn to Eminem and his no BS vibe and extreme skill at the mic.
Audie drew her own inspiration from roaming the streets as a kid, crazy relationships, navigating jealous girls, and the rollercoaster of emotions navigating two nationalities, identities, and cultures, all the time.
It was because of this that Audie knew what she had to do to rise the ranks: hustle. And hustle she did. She ended back up in France to hone her craft as a hip hop artist, as well as a dancer. France’s diversity in thought, music, and culture was a natural landing zone for Audie to continue to develop a sound, look, and vibe that was unique to her.
Even though she ended up back in Sydney and dabbled in acting, hosting, and other forms of dance, including ballet, she knew France is where she would likely settle to take her music career to the next level.
So in 2016, she decided to settle in Paris.
She has not stopped ever since, has released several singles, including Scandalous, Back in the Game, and Never Stop, as well as collaborated with major hip hop artists around the world. The most recent collaboration includes world recognized West Coast rapper The Game. Audie is also collaborating with top Sony charting producer, composer and DJ, DJ Bander. Audie’s love for the grind has become a lifestyle that she embraces. 2020 has not been an easy year to say the least but not even a strict lockdown could keep her away from recording new songs, making astonishing collaborations, doing (online) interviews, and coming up with bright new ideas to connect with her fans.
More singles, more music, more Audie B is coming your way. To use her own words content will NEVER STOP!
