NITA STRAUSS, the incredibly talented guitarist who has rocked out on stage with Alice Cooper, Femme Fatale, Jermaine Jackson, The Iron Maidens and more, announced today that she will be releasing her debut solo album, “Controlled Chaos“. She has joined the Sumerian Records family and will be giving fans 11 tracks of epic musicality on 16 November.
The electric and quite literally “fire” music video for ‘Our Most Desperate Hour‘ is the first look into what’s to come from this new chapter of Nita’s career. You can check out the video here:
On the upcoming album, Nita shares: “From bright and fun to aggressive and dark, from peaceful to chaotic, this album is a way for me to give the listener a glimpse into my personality and what goes on inside my mind.”
“Controlled Chaos” is available for pre-order at http://nitastrauss.com.
NITA STRAUSS has been fighting to make a name for herself in the guitar world for years. She is one of the most sought after clinicians in the industry and has done extensive clinic tours across multiple continents. Her consistent touring schedule has shown her to play in front of over a million audience members per year consistently for the past several years. 2018 has already proven to be a banner year for Nita with her being named as the first ever female Ibanez signature artist in the company’s 60 year history. She played WWE Superstar Shinsuke Nakamura’s entrance music at WrestleMania in New Orleans in front of an audience of 78,000 fans and millions streaming worldwide just before surpassing her Kickstarter campaign 8x over, allowing her to self-produce and record “Controlled Chaos“.
The 11-track album was a challenge to NITA STRAUSS and an opportunity for her to reconnect with what inspired her to pick up a guitar in the first place. She says, “I started playing guitar because of instrumental guitar music. All my real heroes made instrumental albums. All my own career has been spent playing in bands, but I never forgot that dream of what inspired me to pick up the guitar in the first place.”
