Anitra Jay

For fans of:India.Arie, Tracy Chapman, Jill Scott, Heather Headley

New Orleans native, Anitra Jay, was surrounded by Jazz, Blues, and R&B as a child with Gospel at the helm of her influence. She joined the choir early on where she learned the mechanics of rhythm. She began writing her own songs in high school and learned to play guitar a few years later.

Inspired by a range of artists from Bill Withers to Erykah Badu, her music is a down-to-earth blend of soul and poetry with modern sensibilities. She combines soul-catching melodies with real life experiences that leave you inspired and in a deeper state of mind.
