“"Someone please call the people who decide the Juno Nominations and make sure they listen to…Bloom before making any big decisions. It will be a shame if the Canadian music industry gathers this spring & NehRita isn’t among the people being recognized for their work."”
— Brian Williams, Editor of Guelph Life Magazine

Toronto born Jamaican-Canadian soul/jazz artist Joni NehRita is not one 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 & a call for change. In 2016 NehRita received commercial airplay of her single "Merry Christmas". With thanks from The Region of Waterloo Arts Fund, she plans to release her new project, "Love & Protest" early 2019.
