An urban girl with a Southern heart and Eastern roots, Nita’s earthy, soothing voice and poetic songs will remind audiences of a mix of Sara Bareilles, Norah Jones and a softer Adele.
Born in Mississippi and raised just outside of Washington, DC, Nita began her musical journey at the age of 3, singing Hindi songs with her family. After years of classical piano (and dabbling with acoustic guitar), teenage heartbreak inspired her first songs. In 2007 she started performing at small venues like the local Borders in her hometown (Germantown, MD).
Since then, Nita's gypsy spirit has taken her to many venues around the country and the world such as The Lincoln Theatre, Rock and Roll Hotel, Hard Rock Cafe (Washington D.C.), National Underground, The Living Room (NYC), Room Five, The Fox and Hounds (L.A.), and even international venues like Ronnie Scott's in London, UK.
Nita's upcoming single "Set You Free Remix" is a moody, downtempo take of the original "Set You Free" written with producer/guitarist Mateo Sol in Los Angeles (released by Indie Label White Lion Audio). The song stays in line with her themes of heartbreak, dreams and fantasies, evoking the yearning and passion of desiring a relationship that will never come to be. Stay tuned for the remix coming to you on September 25th.
