ABOUT NITA STRAUSS
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. 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.
As well as writing, producing and playing all the guitar and bass parts on her solo output, NITA is known for 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 record-setting pay-per-views and becoming the first female to have a signature Ibanez guitar (which now hangs in the entrance to the legendary Guitar Centre on Sunset Blvd).
When the pandemic hit, being the force of nature that she is, NITA took the adversity of no touring and being at home and turned it in to a positive. During the past 18 months, NITA launched her online guitar learning course, Rock Guitar Fundamentals
which takes the learner through everything from picking up the guitar for the first time all the way through to learning songs and playing solos. Taking her passion for health and fitness to the next level, NITA also launched her Body Shred Fitness Challenge
, a 3 month fitness challenge that pairs a love of music with passion for getting healthier in your body and mind! Participants have the chance to win prize packages valued at over $2,500 while becoming a part of a fun, supportive world wide fitness community. And, as if that wasn’t enough, NITA launched her Patreon
which gives fans access to weekly livestreams, lessons, signed photos and behind the scenes looks at the album recording process.
NITA released her debut solo album ‘Controlled Chaos’ in 2018 to mass acclaim from fans and media alike with Metal Injection calling it “a great debut that—as its creator intended—leaves no doubt.” and Guitar World stating “‘Controlled Chaos’ is a panoramic view of Nita Strauss’ many strengths”. To date the album has clocked up 6.7 million streams worldwide, with music videos for singles “Our Most Desperate Hour
” and “Mariana Trench
” clocking up over 3 million Youtube views.
As well as performing with Alice Cooper, NITA has also played with R&B star Jermaine Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video game supergroup Critical Hit and popular tribute band The Iron Maidens.
