As well as wowing fans all over the world as Alice Cooper‘s touring guitarist, gracing the covers of Guitar World and Guitar Player, performing for millions upon millions of WWE fans worldwide at Wrestlemania and Evolution, becoming the first female to have a signature Ibanez guitar (which now hangs in the entrance to the legendary Guitar Centre on Sunset Blvd ), breaking attendance records at guitar clinics across the country, playing ‘America The Beautiful’ at the the Seattle Seahawks vs Los Angeles Rams NFL game last year and being interviewed about her strict fitness regime in the likes of Muscle and Fitness Hers , Nita also found time to write, produce, engineer and record all guitar and bass parts on her debut solo album, ‘Controlled Chaos’.

Having launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of the record, which reached it’s goal in 2 hours and ended up being over 800% funded , Nita signed a deal with world renowned independent record label, Sumerian Records who have released the album worldwide today. ‘ Controlled Chaos’ is a complete expression of who Nita is as an artist and yet another example of the truly unstoppable force she is. Speaking on her solo debut, Nita says

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.”

Through obsession, dedication and sheer hard work, Nita  has not only been firmly established as one of the best guitarists in the world, she is also a role model, a trail blazer, a fitness fanatic, a phenomenal performer and a total badass. She was honored at this year’s She Rocks Awardsas the recipient of the ‘Inspire’ Award that was presented to her by her life-long hero, Steve Vai.

As well as performing with Alice Cooper, she has also played with R&B star Jermaine Jacksonearly MTV darlingsFemme Fatalevideo game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens. Her skill, exuberant stage presence and love for all things guitar have seen Nita become a truly unstoppable, limitless force, blazing a previously untrodden trail.

“Controlled Chaos is a full panoramic view of her many strengths…. the album demonstrates that the Hurricane has, indeed, landed and intends to stick around for a while.” – Guitar World

Nita Strauss has figured out the best way to clear one of the music industry’s most awkward hurdles. Be really, really, really good at what you do. In Nita’s own words, repeated like a mantra: “Leave no doubt.”…….Anyone who claims to doubt Nita Strauss’s ability after listening to Controlled Chaos is either a moron, deaf, trolling, or some combination of the above.’ – Metal Injection

’Controlled Chaos’ by Nita Strauss showcases a guitarist consumed with passion for their music and ready to burn up the fretboard. It is an unabashed metal shred fest.’ – Metalwani
