Joni NehRita’s music is a breath of fresh air for those who still like their music served with, well...Soul. An accomplished singer/songwriter/musician, she manages to blend the time-honoured qualities of classic soul with a modern sensibility that flirts heavily with jazz and pop. It is this effortless and seamless fusion that gives Joni her distinct sound and makes her feel familiar yet fresh and new.  In mid-January she released a new 3 song EP called "Beginnings";  aptly named, as it is the first recording she has made with the quintet she's been playing with for the past few years. On it Joni flexes her songwriting chops offering up three very different, yet distinctly Joni NehRita tunes.  One is a playful, feel- good medium swing, another a gorgeous waltz that makes the listener feel as though they've been transported back to the days of classic back & white movies, and lastly we a sexy soul-jazz tune that features spoken word artist Hajile Kalaike on its funky outro.Joni's two previously releases were well supported  by the CBC, Canada AM, The Toronto Sun, Now Toronto,  KW Record, former Wave 94.7.  She has performed lived on Canada AM twice, had the lead role in The Grand Theatre's production of Hair and has been funded by the Ontario Arts Council.
