Yelich-O'Connor was born in Auckland, New Zealand on 7 November 1996 to a civil engineer father and a stay-at-home mother/poet; she was then raised in suburban Devonport, North Shore, Auckland.
At the age of 12, she was spotted by A&R scout Scott Maclachlan when he saw her singing in a video of a talent show at her school, Belmont Intermediate. Later, when Yelich-O'Connor was 13, Maclachlan signed her to Universal and, at the age of 14, she began working with their songwriters.
