Toronto-based artist/songwriter Benita is an impeccable vocalist, combining textures of R&B and pop in her sound. Hailing from the Jane and Finch neighbourhood, Benita started her musical journey performing in musicals and school coffee houses in high school to then singing backup for local artists in Toronto.
One of her most memorable opportunities was getting to sing backup vocals in a 5 day sold out tour for Daniel Caesar’s Freudian Tour. She then found her way diving into releasing her own original music in 2019 to now accumulating over 800K streams/plays across all platforms.
Her debut single had reached the Top 10 in CBC Canada’s Searchlight competition and her music has gained support from many radio platforms including G98.7, FLOW 93.5, and Vibe 105.5. Her singing covers has also been noticed by r&b songstresses SZA and Snoh Aalegra.
She has also found a footing in writing for other artists as a songwriter and has continued to impress those around her with her skills. Benita’s debut EP SCARLET, dropped in March 2022, and she continues to set her mark in the next chapter of her career.
