(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’

last year and being interviewed about her strict fitness regime
in the likes of Muscle and Fitness Hers
also found time to write, produce, engineer and record all guitar and bass parts
on her debut solo album, ‘Controlled Chaos’.
“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 honoured at this year’s She Rocks Awards as 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 Jackson, early MTV darlings Femme Fatale, video 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.
