Bio

Introducing​ ​Melbourne​ ​artist​ ​Chitra,​ ​a​ ​genre​ ​bending​ ​songwriter​ ​that seamlessly​ ​weaves​ ​the​ ​blunt​ ​force​ ​of​ ​rock​ ​n​ ​roll with​ ​the​ ​candid​ ​storytelling​ ​and​ ​heartache​ ​of​ ​country​ ​and​ ​soul.

Growing​ ​up​ ​amongst​ ​rich​ ​music​ ​scene​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Bellarine​ ​Peninsula,​ ​Chitra​ ​found​ ​herself​ ​fully immersed​ ​with​ ​sounds​ ​both​ ​local​ ​and​ ​global​ ​and​ ​quickly​ ​developed​ ​a​ ​passion​ ​for​ ​songwriting, which​ ​for​ ​her,​ ​became​ ​a​ ​vital​ ​means​ ​of​ ​channelling​ ​emotion​ ​and​ ​experience.​ ​
​Chitra​ ​has​ ​experimented​ ​with​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​genres,​ ​from​ ​folk​ ​to​ ​R’N’B,​ ​charming audiences​ ​with​ ​every​ ​iteration.​ ​The​ ​end​ ​result​ ​is​ ​a​ ​robust​ ​vocal​ ​laced​ ​with​ ​sarcasm​ ​and sadness,​ ​backed​ ​by​ ​jangly​ ​guitars​ ​and​ ​playful​ ​rhythms.

If I am a tennis racquet, then this song has come at me, fast, and collided with me in that space in the middle of my strings, equidistant from all sides of the frame. I believe they call it: The Sweet Spot.

Totally hear that Julia Jacklin vibe in Chitra's voice but, she is less of a dreamer and more of a worldly old soul. Still, SO MANY FEEL with this tune. OMG - it's like a heart seeped in sorrow. There's not light in the darkness but there is definitely beauty and wonder.
