Joni NehRita delivers real soul music played by real musicians. Think of a time when Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye were considered “Pop music”. Her writing is where joyful melodies meet deep groove and evocative lyrics. Her music has its head in Jazz, its personality is Pop, and its heart is pure Soul.
Her debut release, “A Fine Time” was well received both in independent and mainstream media. “About 30 seconds into ‘A Fine Time’ I was pretty damned confident that Joni NehRita was the real deal. The entire disc sprang to life with unwavering elegance and never ceased to impress…the selections strike hard and soothe the spirit.” 4/5 stars. Addi Steward, NOW Magazine.
NehRita has toured in Canada, The U.S., U.K., Germany and Australia. Constant support from the CBC has helped win over new supporters including The Ontario Arts Council, which helped fund her soon-to-be-released sophomore effort, “The Bare Truth.”
