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 "Set You Free" is a moody, emotional downtempo jam created with producer/guitarist Mateo Sol music in L.A. She is excited to release this one with Indie label White Lion Audio through Sony's The Orchard and hopes the song makes you dance, cry, drive down the PCH with your windows rolled down or all of the above. She's got many more singles to come, so stay tuned!
