Reddi is an award-winning singer/songwriter working in a variety of pop music styles.
Training in dance at age 5 and performing on stage professionally at age 7, the performing arts came early to the girl whose naturally red locks would later inspire the name Reddi. Her passion drew her to New York City where she lived the life of a working dancer, singer and actor. In addition to her professional work, she attended classes at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and the CAP21 professional musical theatre training program.
After a career on the stage, Reddi shifted her focus to songwriting. Now her passion is to write songs and share them with the world.
Successes in songwriting include numerous television, DVD and digital song placements, including on NBC Universal, MTV Networks and ABC Family. In her first synch placement, her song "Perfect" was dramatically featured in a dialogue-free montage sequence on NBC primetime TV show Lipstick Jungle, followed by DVD release and broadcast syndication of the show worldwide. The placement set Reddi in good company with artists Natasha Bedingfield, Adele, Mieka Pauley and Lizz Wright also heard on the show that season.
As a singer/songwriter, Reddi’s music blends acoustic rock with soulful lyrics, melodic hooks and indie pop appeal. Independent releases include the "Learn to Let Go" EP and the single "Perfect", both projects with co-writer/producer Neil Cabana.
Reddi has performed her original music in such legendary New York City venues as the Bitter End, the Delancey, CBGB's Gallery, the National, the Blue Note, the Apollo Music Cafe and St. Nick's Pub. She has performed professionally as a dancer and singer throughout the U.S. as well as in Europe, Australia and Brazil, and appeared in hit musicals on Broadway, off-Broadway and in National Tours including Mamma Mia! (Original Broadway Cast) and Rent (National Tour).
Throughout her performing arts career, she has had the good fortune to perform and/or work with countless talented and distinguished artists and arts organizations including such notables as Tony-Award winner Idina Menzel, Tony-Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Taye Diggs, Julia Murney, Tony-Award winning arranger, orchestrator and musical director Stephen Oremus, composers Andrew Lippa and Philip Hamilton, Urban Bush Women dance company, Manhattan Theater Club, Ile Aiye drum and dance of Brasil, the Academy of Movement and Music, Disney Theatricals and more.
Reddi is currently working on multiple music projects, co-writing and recording new material.
She is thankful for the continued opportunity to learn, create, collaborate and be inspired.
