Orit Shimoni, formerly also known as Little Birdie, is “one of the nation’s most alluring vocalists,” {The Calgary Herald} and “one of the most lyrically impactful vocalists” {Beatroute Magazine}.

Previously a teacher and academic, Israeli/Canadian Orit (pronounced O’reet) became a full-time touring solo artist after releasing two, highly acclaimed albums in Montreal.    She moved to Berlin to write and record her third album, and after that decided to live out of a suitcase so she could pursue touring and recording with her entire focus.   She has been officially ‘on the road’ for over a decade, no fixed address.  En route, she has contributed articles and blogs, children’s stories and poems.

With ten highly acclaimed albums out, and more recorded and on their way to being released, Orit’s songs and performances have drawn diverse audiences into her profound and universal themes and her storytelling talent, with writing compared to that of Leonard Cohen, and a voice that has been compared to Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, and KD Lang.  But Orit is a truly unique and prolific artist. In a sea of predictable writing and ‘pretty’ voices. She stands out as a special force with important relatable messages, and a disarming sense of humour.
