Living in L.A. 

For those of you who may not know, I moved to L.A. last summer! Sorry I haven't kept you all updated, but for the past 9 months or so, I've just been taking this big city in and playing the part of the observer for many months now. I guess that's how I like to roll. But it's been about 9 months (hmmm coincidence?) and I'm feeling more ready to jump into life here!
I may seem quiet these days, but I have been working on some new projects. I'm recording a few new songs as well as co-writing with others and I've played a few mini shows in town, with one coming up at the end of June (so come out if you're here:D)

L.A. is a huge and sometimes overwhelming city, but it's got a lot to offer and a very vivacious vibe that I haven't felt in other places! This is why I am really a fan, although I'll admit, sometimes the small town girl in me wants to retreat to a cozy shire. But this is a great place for me to grow and become more confident and dare to be more visible than I have been in years! As they say, go big or go home right?

If you haven't already , check me out on Instagram @nitachawlamusic and Twitter @nitachawla for updates, mini cover videos and other quirky, odd things I do. Hope to keep you updated on life here more regularly now....
