Acoustic Soul Singer-Songwriter. Poet. Christ Follower.

Anitra Jay is an acoustic soul singer-songwriter based in Houston, TX. With a recent musical feature on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters, Anitra Jay presents a whimsically soulful all-caution-to-the-wind interpretation of music. Born and raised in New Orleans, Anitra's vocals highlight her roots in Jazz, Soul, and Gospel.  With a musical style often compared to India.Arie and Chrisette Michele, Anitra Jay offers a sweet down-to-earth blend of soul and poetry with modern sensibilities.  Her personality and expert improvisational skills set her performances square between the raw edge of improv comedy and sultry soaked soul.  She effortlessly combines soul-catching melodies with tales of real life experiences wrought with motivational messages that leave the listener entertained, inspired, and ready to take on the world.  She is currently working on her fourth album, a whimsical take on life called "Work in Progress."  

Iā€™m Anitra Jay. Above all, my music is a vessel to inspire, empower, and incite you to a higher state of being. I hope to bring a revolution to your living through music.
