NETTA is a uniquely gifted singer, songwriter and actress with a special vocal tone that ranges from sweet to deep to warm and raspy.
Born and raised between Berkeley and Oakland California, Netta first fell in love with music at a young age when her mother, despite their modest means, always found a way to nurture Netta’s early interest in the Arts. At the age of 6, she started rapping and writing poetry as a way to translate her feelings and to help her get through the difficult times growing up. Music became her outlet, and also the major connection between Netta and her grandmother who was also heavily involved in music and a locally know Jazz pianist. Inspired by Artist/actresses like Mary J Blige, Janet Jackson and Madonna, Netta was determined to take music seriously as a performing artist. Netta got her first big break when she participated in Oakland Native and Def Jam President, Shakir Stewart’s talent search "The Def Jam Mega Star Search.” Netta was then selected as the winner of the contest and began working with Shakir and his staff to find her place in the industry. Soon after, Netta was signed to El Seven/Atlantic and released her EP entitled "580“, a project that is heavily inspired by the confusions of Love, overcoming struggles and finding happiness. Netta is now embarking on a new sound with a wider range of music as she is inspired by R&B, Pop, Jazz, Country and Hip Hop. She a special voice from the Bay Area with a quite unique story to share.
