NITA’S ALBUM OFFICIALLY AVAILABLE FOR PRE ORDER!
As of today, my album CONTROLLED CHAOS is officially available for pre order at nitastrauss.com and all major retailers!!!! What you’re hearing right now is the first single Our Most Desperate Hour and it is available to download RIGHT NOW (if you’re a Kickstarter backer, check your email- surprise
Producing and doing the majority of the engineering on this record myself was a challenge for me in so many ways and I learned A LOT about myself in the process but I am beyond thrilled with how it came out!!!!! And so happy to get to share it with you guys now!!! I’m writing this post with tears in my eyes thinking of the journey of the last few months… you guys… WE DID IT!!!!!!
Believe it or not, that’s not all the news. I am beyond excited to announce my first ever tour as a solo artist, in support of the incredible Angel Vivaldi. The 29- city tour will kick off 11/19 in Massachusetts and end 12/21 in New Jersey!! Dates are below!!
A final note- As some of you guys remember, I had two reasons for not going with a record label initially. Number one was creative control of my music, and number two was doing what was best for any other bands I work with now or in the future. Many labels I spoke to insisted on owning a piece of everything I did, and that was just not something I was willing to consider.
Sumerian came to the table after the album was completely finished- recording, mixing, cover art, the works- and we agreed on an amazing partnership to put this record out to the world. Their reach, distribution and support will help me make this grow more than I ever could have on my own, and most importantly, they believe in my solo music 100% with no contingencies. We have always had a very small team here on the business side of my career, and I am extremely grateful to the two people who made this happen- my attorney extraordinaire Eric German and as always to Josh for their absolutely tireless focus and determination to make the right deal without settling. Thank you also to Ash Avildsen, Amanda Fiore, Mike Jakubow and all at Sumerian Records- I could not be happier in my new home and can’t wait to share this record with the world!!!!
