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.

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.
