Biography

From the chemical plants of Texas City to CBGB's in NYC to the biggest stages of Houston. Sherita's journey has been a long, winding, and extremely challenging but rewarding road. 

Since moving back home in 2012, Sherita quickly developed a reputation in the Houston, TX music scene as one of the hardest working musicians the city has to offer. 

Hailed as "the most diverse singer and Indie musician from the Texas Gulf Coast yet." Sherita has one of Texas's newest, most powerful and unique voices. 

Sherita cites a wide variety of musical influences such as Joni Mitchell, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Nicks, Etta James, Edie Brickell, Billie Holiday and Janis Joplin. Listening to these greats has helped Sherita develop a talent for crossing genres easily. When asked what’s on her playlist right now she’ll tell you, “…anything before 1978 because I like the sound of older recordings. The lyrics were more emotional and well structured.” Sherita is a songwriter who enjoys writing about positive change through action, manifestation, and choosing to be someone under any circumstances. She also puts this practice into daily life.

Able to jump from solo act to full band performance with the snap of her fingers, Sherita brings a genuine attitude and a stage presence that fills any room. In fact, she’s performed at the legendary CBGB’s, House of Blues, and has a monthly residency at Axelrad, Houston’s most popular beer garden. She has delighted audiences at festivals and clubs across North America.

Sherita recently went to the studio with notable Houston musicians, Kelly Doyle, Geoffrey Muller, Tank Lisenbe, and Will Van Horn, of Robert Ellis fame. They performed on the title track of her brand new EP, “Htown Love”. It was recorded at Houston’s oldest and most recognizable studio, SugarHill Recording Studios. The other track on this EP recorded at the same studio, “Under The Sheets”, features well known Houston musicians Nick Gaitan, Nathan Quick, The Mighty Orq, and Shawn Hayle. 

She has been featured in multiple publications including the Houston PressScene Magazine, and Free Press Houston. She has also recorded with famed producers Chris “Frenchie” Smith and Josh Applebee. She has also been featured on major market radio. Also, most recently in this Houston City Book article.
