Join us for an evening of soul…
Anitra Jay Live @ ROOTS
Saturday, January 26 | 7-10PM
“I don’t believe in perfect musicianship when performing live. There’s something special about nerves, real people, real time mistakes, and energies. I take it all and use it to deliver a full spectrum of raw soul, emotion, with jazzy highlights.” -Anitra Jay

"Anitra Jay wowed my guests with her voice and guitar. Everybody was asking me where I found her. She is a great talent and was always gracious and polite and infectious with her charm. I will definitely have her play again, to a bigger crowd than before because now all my friends are asking me when she is coming back. Anitra is a gem, a real talent who absolutely makes a party."
-David N. (House Party - Charlotte, NC)
"Anitra Jay's music is a breath of fresh air. Neo-soul music with a gospel twist. The song, "My Red Shoes," is a hit."
-Charlotte Our City Radio
"We all thought you were amazing. You have a beautiful voice. Even my sound man asked where we found you and wanted your business card. Thank you so much for coming."
