An urban girl with a Southern heart and Eastern roots, Nita’s earthy, soothing voice and poetic songs will remind audiences of Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos and early Norah Jones.
Born in Mississipi and raised just outside of Washington, DC, Nita began her musical journey at the age of 3, singing Hindi songs with her parents and older sister. After years of classical piano training and acoustic guitar, her first teenage heartbreak inspired her to begin songwriting. In 2007 she started off small, performing at the local Borders bookstore in her hometown (Germantown, MD).
Since then, Nita's gyspy spirit has taken her to many venues around the country and the world such as venues in D.C. (The Lincoln Theatre, Rock and Roll Hotel, Hard Rock Cafe), New York City (National Underground, The Living Room), Los Angeles (Room Five, The Fox and Hounds) , and even international venues like Ronnie Scott's in London, UK.
Nita's latest single "I Will Be Your Home" has a similar emotional tone as her single from last year,"The Way", yet it is even more heart-warming. In her latest single, a co-write between her and fellow songwriter Katie Norris, home is not a place, yet a feeling creating by those we love. She is excited to release many more singles in the upcoming months! (so stay tuned).
