NitaThe live performance of is mostly instrumental in nature, combining originals with covers.
In a May 2021 interview with Kylie Olsson‘s Youtube spectacle “The six-string life”, Nita spoke about the progress of the writing and recording sessions for his 2018 follow-up “Controlled chaos” solo debut.
“It’s been a really interesting experience, to write and to be creative when you are really stuck in this bubble and you have no stimuli to inspire you to do things,” she said, referring to the crisis. coronaviruses. “It’s been an interesting process to be creative at the moment, but ultimately I’m really proud of the way everything is going. I think it’s one of the most interesting things I’ve done musically. And I focus a lot more on the song. My first album was like “How many cool guitar stuff can I do?” And this time there’s a lot of cool guitar stuff, if I say so- same, but there’s also a lot more emphasis on song and writing and the journey that it takes the listener to songwriters and producers to kind of help me hone my skills in this area and not only to throw up the guitar all over the song. [Laughs] And it has been a very good growth process for me. So I’m really happy with the way it’s going. “
When asked if his second album would again be an entirely instrumental effort, Nita said, “I’ll have a few guest singers this time around. There are a few names that are attached which, one in particular, if that happens, will be a really, really crazy crossover that people wouldn’t expect, and then others, more people who vibrate with my personal style. But whatever it is, I can promise you it won’t be boring and it won’t be what you would expect. “
Strauss went on to say that she gladly delegated some of the production and engineering responsibilities for the next album to other people. “The first one, I did absolutely everything, and it was more out of stubbornness than anything else,” she explained. “I wanted to make my own statement; I wanted to do it all myself. I didn’t want any outside influence telling me how it should be done. So I produced it, I designed it, I played whatever I could play. I’m not a good enough drummer or keyboardist to play this stuff, but all I could do on my own I did. And this time around I’m really happy to take the cut back from engineering and really fair I focus on being a guitarist and songwriter. So I keep designing my own guitars, I’ve always designed keyboards and stuff like that, but I will not design the battery. Josh [Nita‘s longtime boyfriend, manager and drummer Josh Villalta] come in and play the drums live, I won’t be the one picking them up this time around, so you’re welcome. [Laughs] And then the same with the singer. I don’t know how to record vocals. I have no egos to take a step back and let someone who really knows what they’re doing do it. I think this is good growth for me, because I would have stubbornly fought on my own until it sounded good. And now I’m really happy to take a step back, embrace the process and work with some really great people. “
Nita also confirmed that she would not be doing any lead vocals on the new LP herself. “I can hold a tune enough to sing a little bit on the Alice tour, but I’m not a singer good enough to sing an entire song, ”she said.
In April, Nita Recount Wrestling Inc. editor-in-chief Nick hausman that her next LP will feature a guest appearance by one of her “favorite singers on the scene right now”.
Strauss played with Alice cooper since 2014, when she replaced the Australian musician and former Michael jackson player Orianthi. She joined Alice in time for a mammoth MOTLEY CRUE to visit. It was recommended for Cooper by the legendary rocker’s former bassist and WING leader Kip Winger.
It’s been a long time, but the wait is almost over …… ..
