Toronto born Jamaican-Canadian soul/jazz artist Joni NehRita is not easily forgotten after seeing her live. A staple on the music scene in Guelph/Kitchener-Waterloo, she has cemented her place among the region’s best loved singer/songwriters. Her 3rd album, Bloom released early 2016 has been well received by The CBC & UK’s Solar Radio. It showcases her best writing to date, delivering well-crafted funk, reggae & jazz tinged pop tunes that groove hard. Much of her music hearkens back to a time when funk & R&B made you dance while also serving up social commentary and a call for change.

She teamed up with studio veteran Rick Hutt who recorded, mixed & mastered the album. All the tunes were penned and produced by NehRita.

“I can attest that in live performance her voice & stage are stellar and come off as endearingly natural. Joni had me cheering & hollering like I haven’t at an R&B show in awhile.” – Raji Sohal of CBC Radio 3
