I am a singer/songwriter from Penticton B.C., currently enrolled in the Contemporary Music and Technology program at Selkirk College in Nelson B.C. Truly passionate about music, songwriting and performing.
I have recorded two CDs full of original material, the first called "Sweetest Things" and my newest is self-titled "Nikita Afonso". I love to perform in and around town at festivals, fundraisers, coffee shops, restaurants, and one of my personal favourites- the local Farmer's Market; every Saturday.
I am honoured to have received the Penticton Chamber of Commerce "Young Citizen of the Year" along with SOWINS "Young Leader of the Year" back in 2011. I am also truly grateful for the opportunities I have had in the past such as getting pulled on stage to sing with one of my favourite country music stars, Keith Urban; the sold out Nikita Afonso and the Offramp Ensemble concert held at the Cleland Theatre and getting to open for Canadian Country act Paul Brandt at the South Okanagan Event Centre.
