• BIO:
As a soloist, Normita provided piano solo musical entertainment for social occasions on a regular basis. She later was introduced to Sonjah Wise, a vocalist, and LadyFingers became a duo. Currently NJ LadyFingers performs as a quintet.

Normita can also play a smokin' left hand keyboard bass if the situation calls. NJ LadyFingers' sound is unique, between smooth jazz and fusion. Not your run of the mill club dance band. The music is inventive, unpredictable, but with a groove that gnaws on your insides, and comes forth with a "'Yesssss!! How did they do that with THAT (cover) song???"

NJ LadyFingers' influence is from it's leader/keyboardist, Normita, who loves to arrange and re-arrange. A songwriter also, she
gives her own meaning to some of her original musical creations. Normita also has a thriving piano instruction business that she manages from her home studio in Tampa, FL. She still performs as a solo artist at many venues where classical piano programs are requested.

The current CD "This Is What It Is" is received great reviews and response nationally and internationally, even reaching the #2 spot on the UK Smooth Jazz AND soul charts. It is still being well received as more music fans are listening. Sales of the first CD, Eargasm" are remaining steady, and she is recording a third CD at this time.
