New Orleans native, Anitra Jay, was surrounded by Jazz, Blues, and R&B as a child with Gospel at the helm of her influence. 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. Anitra Jay regularly performs in and around Charlotte and is currently recording her newest album Genesis, which is scheduled to release this coming Fall.

Both Anitra Jay and Ana Lucia Divins have teamed up with Carolina Breast Friends, a local non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness, supporting, and providing resources to local breast cancer survivors.
“We’re always excited about the opportunity to bring awareness to our city about Breast Cancer as well as supporting the very brave and strong survivors who fight it. If we can groove to good music while we do it, all the better,” says Angeline Webb a Board Member at Carolina Breast Friends.
