Early life[edit] Ricki-Lee
Ricki-Lee
Dawn Coulter was born on 10 November 1985 in Auckland, New Zealand.[1][2] Her mother Loretta Sheerin, of Māori descent, was a model.[3][4][5] Coulter's parents separated before she was born, and she was raised by her mother.[6] Coulter and her mother relocated to Gold Coast, Queensland
Gold Coast, Queensland
when she was three months old. Coulter's father figure at the time was her grandfather Rocky. Coulter's mother gave her every chance to visit her biological father in New Zealand
New Zealand
when she was a child. "He wasn't a part of my life. I'd go over there and stay with him and his family, [but] it was just weird to me. Then when I got to an age where I could speak up to Mum, about six or seven, I said, 'I don't want to go; I don't like it.'"[7] She attended Southport State School and experienced the personal struggles of a lonely childhood as she wanted a life similar to her school friends.[8] "Their mums and dads were married. They had brothers and sisters. They had afternoon tea. They had a cooked dinner. I never had that. I'd get home from school and there was nothing in the cupboard. I would eat mouldy bread and drink water because that would fill me up".[6] Coulter grew up mostly on her own because her mother worked two jobs to pay the bills.[6] During primary school, Coulter participated in many sports, including swimming, touch football and netball, which she played for six years.[2][5] When Coulter was nine years old, her mother met John, a man of Scottish descent who is now her step father.[7][9] Coulter has two half-sisters, Jodie and Emily.[2][10] As a teenager, she attended Southport State High School.[8] At the age of 15, Coulter had a serious knee injury which required reconstructive surgery. She was told she would never play netball again. Several months later, Coulter's ability to sing was discovered by her mother who overheard her in her bedroom, which led to her performing at gigs in the Gold Coast and Brisbane
Brisbane
areas with live bands. Coulter had also secured lead roles in high school productions such as, Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, Cats, Rent, The Boy Friend, Phantom of the Opera, Grease and The Rocky Horror Show.[2] Aside from singing, she also learned how to play several instruments, including the tenor saxophone, flute and trumpet, and would often play them in school concerts and in the school stage band. During high school, Coulter excelled in music and sport. After completing high school in 2002, she decided to focus on her music career, and began writing her own songs with her good friend Xy Latu.[11] Music career[edit] 2003–04: Australian Idol
Australian Idol
and Popstars Live[edit] In 2003, Coulter auditioned for the first season of Australian Idol but did not make it past the audition rounds.[11] The following year, Coulter successfully auditioned for the first season of Popstars Live, and progressed to the top sixty round of the competition but was part of the first group of performers who were sent home.[11] Later that same year, Coulter successfully auditioned for the second season of Australian Idol, singing En Vogue's "Don't Let Go (Love)", and progressed through to the semi-finals.[11][12] Following the semi-final process, she had advanced through to the top twelve.[11] Throughout the season, Coulter was regarded as a favourite to win the competition because of her performances of Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough", Tina Turner's version of "Proud Mary" and Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing".[13][14] In the final seven-week, Coulter was eliminated from the competition.[11] One of the show's judges Ian "Dicko" Dickson described her departure as a scandal. Following her elimination, "newspapers ran the story as front-page news and Coulter herself couldn't quite hide the anger and disappointment she plainly felt".[13] Like contestant Daniel Belle, who was eliminated the week before her, Coulter never appeared in the bottom three until her elimination.[15] 2005–07: Ricki-Lee

Following her departure from Australian Idol, Coulter was offered recording contracts by record labels including the show's sponsor Sony BMG, but she signed with Australia's biggest independent label Shock Records.[13] Coulter explained, "I'd met with a number of labels and Shock were the only one that asked me what I wanted to do and what kind of album I wanted to make and who I wanted to work with".[16] Her debut single "Hell No!" was released in June 2005, ahead of the related self-titled debut album, Ricki-Lee.[17] The song peaked at number five on the ARIA Singles Chart – remaining in the top-ten for three consecutive weeks.[18] It was eventually certified gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association, for shipments of 35,000 copies.[19] "Sunshine" was released as her second single in September,[20] which peaked at number eight and was also certified gold.[19][21] Ricki-Lee

and Kara DioGuardi, among others.[11][13] "Breathe" was released as the album's third and final single in January 2006, and reached number 14.[21][22] At the 2006 Australian and New Zealand
New Zealand
Urban Music Awards, Ricki-Lee

was nominated for 'Best R&B Album'.[23] That same year, Coulter joined forces with previous Australian Idol contestants Paulini, Emily Williams
Emily Williams
and Kate DeAraugo to be part of the all-girl singing project called Young Divas. The project was initially formed to promote a joint 17-date national tour, where all singers would perform their solo material and several songs as a group.[24] Young Divas released a cover version of Donna Summer's single "This Time I Know It's for Real" in May 2006, through Sony BMG, to promote tickets for the tour.[24][25] A music video was also shot to accompany the song's release.[26] In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, DeAraugo stated that they are "not an Idol supergroup, it's just about finding four female voices. It just so happened the four we've gone with are all from Idol. The single is just to promote the tour, just to show a taste of what will be on there, but there won't be an album".[25] Young Divas' version of "This Time I Know It's for Real" peaked at number two and remained in the top-ten for fourteen consecutive weeks.[27] It was eventually certified platinum, for shipments of 70,000 copies.[28] Five months after the single's release, Young Divas released a second single in November 2006, a cover of Lonnie Gordon's "Happenin' All Over Again".[26][29] The song peaked at number nine and was certified gold.[27][30] Their commercial success prompted the release of a debut album of classic disco and pop covers titled, Young Divas, on 27 November 2006, establishing themselves as an official group.[31] The album debuted at number four and was certified double platinum, for shipments of 140,000 copies.[27][32] A cover of Hazell Dean's "Searchin'" was released as the group's third single, and reached number 40.[27] In February 2007, it was announced that Young Divas had pulled out of their scheduled national tour supporting Irish boy band Westlife, because Coulter had headed overseas to work on her second solo album.[33] The cancellation occurred amid claims that Coulter was set to leave the group, due to personality clashes with DeAraugo.[33][34] The rumours were denied by the group's manager David Champion, who stated that she would return for the group's next headlining tour and the recording of their second album.[35] However, on 22 June 2007, Coulter announced her departure to resume her solo career and to plan her then-upcoming wedding to fiancé, Jamie Babbington.[36] Jessica Mauboy, who became runner-up on the fourth season of Australian Idol, was Coulter's replacement in the group.[37] 2007–10: Brand New Day and subsequent releases[edit]

account on 2 July 2010, that she had parted ways with her manager of five years Lauren Brown.[63] It was then revealed that her new manager was Sean Anderson of the management company 22.[64][65] Coulter later parted ways with Anderson and became managed by her-then boyfriend Richard Harrison of Black Label Entertainment.[66][67][68] Throughout 2010, Coulter put her music career on hold as she took on a full-time position as a breakfast radio presenter for Sydney's Nova 96.9, alongside Merrick Watts

and Scott Dooley.[59] During this time, Coulter had thoughts about quitting music. "At the start of [the] year, I couldn't imagine walking in a studio and writing a song again. I didn't even want to get on stage and sing. I was over it. It's hard for me to say that even now. Music is all I've ever wanted to do. I wasn't mentally there any more. I wanted out, it was too hard. I felt like I'd been worn down. I felt defeated".[59] She later stated that after attending a Thirty Seconds to Mars

concert in Melbourne and rewatching Michael Jackson's Dangerous Tour DVD, she was inspired to perform again.[16] 2011–14: Fear & Freedom and Dance in the Rain[edit]

of this generation".[106] Critics have compared Coulter's songs "Do It Like That" (2012) and its accompanying music video, as well as "Giddyup" (2014) to Beyoncé's work.[108][109][110] Coulter has expressed admiration for other female artists such as Madonna, Pink, Lady Gaga
