Ottawa-born singer-songwriter Rita Carter has become one of her city’s most darling and well-respected voices. Rita’s reputation as a sincere and talented performer is a testament to her creative ability and faith in music, as a source of personal and communal revelation. Rita’s honesty, surety and strong vocal presence have made her a sought-after and much-admired performer, as evidenced by her appearances in some of Ottawa’s most well-known and loved venues, as well as at House of Paint’s Annual Urban Art Festival in 2014 & 2017 and Megaphono Festival.
Her notoriety and acclaim have also helped to take her soulful music on stages overseas. In the fall of 2017 wrapped up The Wake Up Tour in England, aimed to promote her new single “Wake Up”. The 2018 festival season was full of performances at Westfest, RBC Bluesfest, Soul City Music Fest (headliner), and Miss Carter wrapped up the busy year gracing the NAC’s Fourth Stage in December. She is currently putting the finishing touches on her third studio album, “All of We”, which is an ode to her hometown, Ottawa.
To Miss Carter music is a weapon, a peace offering, and an expression of deep humanity, humility and strength!
