An urban girl with a southern heart and eastern roots, Nita’s earthy, soothing voice and poetic songs often remind listeners of Norah Jones, Sara Bareilles or Fiona Apple.
Born in Mississippi and raised just outside of Washington D.C., Nita began her musical journey at the age of 3, singing Hindi songs with her family. After years of learning classical piano and dabbling with acoustic guitar, teenage heartbreak inspired her first songs and she started performing at local coffee shops and open mics around 2007.
Since then, Nita’s performed at many venues around the country and the world such as The Lincoln Theatre, Rock and Roll Hotel Hard Rock Café in D.C., National Underground & The Living Room in NYC, Room Five and The Fox and Hounds in L.A. and even international venues like Ronnie Scott’s in London.
During her musical journey, she's released two EPs, several singles and has also had her music featured on The Voice and Dance Moms.
