Dutch singer-songwriter Anna Nita is inspired by jazz, R&B and soul icons such as Sade, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. Together with her band she makes a laid-back mix of soulful pop, R&B and jazz with sharp lyrics on themes such as empowerment and hypersensitivity. Together with guitarist Maarten Cima, pianist Johan de Haan, bassist Michel Henquet and drummer Wouter Gulikers she released her debut EP "Insulated". She is also working on new material with producer Kijk Een Ster.
"I write very personal songs about my life. On my first EP "Insulated" I sing about my hypersensitivity, something I learned to accept while creating the songs. Writing helps me organise my thoughts, and making music improves my mental health. I hope I can give a voice to all the lovely Highly Sensitive People around the world. Sensitivity is a gift and we should celebrate it. I like to work very DIY and I have taught myself how to sing and write lyrics and melodies. Hopefully I can inspire other young creatives to just believe in yourself, no matter what others think. Through my music I want to encourage listeners to express themselves freely. Dare to be who you are, and live your best life."
"I was born in spring, which is probably the reason I always look at the bright side of life. My parents fell in love in the '70s and brought a lot of free spirit and music into my life.
