Bio

Rita​ ​B​ ​(Bianca​ ​Meier)​ ​is​ ​a​ ​woman​ ​with​ ​something​ ​to​ ​say. She's a Sydney-based Alt Folk artist; raw and honest and makes music to build strength in a conflicting society. Her music is unfiltered, uncorrupted and totally unapologetic.
With​ ​her​ ​latest​ ​self-produced debut​ ​album​ ​released​ ​in​ ​September​ ​2017​ ​​’With Pockets Nearly Empty And A Glass Almost Full’ ​receiving​ ​affectionate​ ​attention​ ​from​ ​Sydney​ ​locals​ ​through​ ​FBi​ ​and​ ​2SER radio​ ​play​ ​and​ ​through​ ​playing​ ​an​ ​extensive​ ​amount​ ​of​ ​Sydney​ ​shows​ ​both​ ​solo​ ​and with​ ​her​ ​band.

Rita​ ​B​ ​won​ ​the​ ​hearts​ ​of​ ​many​ ​through​ ​the​ ​innocent​ ​folk​ ​rock​ ​vibe​ ​that​ ​comes​ ​with​ ​her music,​ ​where​ ​it​ ​seems​ ​everything​ ​is​ ​all​ ​peaches​ ​and​ ​cream,​ ​until​ ​she​ ​opens​ ​her​ ​mouth and​ comfortably ​dishes​ ​out​ ​all​ ​kinds​ ​of contradictions and hypocrisies that almost every human being commits.
​The​ ​breadwinner​ ​is​ ​all in​ ​the​ ​lyrics​ ​and​ ​the​ ​fantastically​ ​blunt​ ​delivery​ ​and​ currently she is focusing on carving her name beyond Sydney's live music and recording scene. Rita B also cuts a mesmerising presence on stage and her one of a kind voice has to be heard to be believed.
