Nita Strauss

What does it mean to you to receive this award from She Rocks?
It’s really such an honor to be here and be not only standing among these incredible women, but actually to be getting an award for it is very surreal.

How did your recent tour with Angel Vivaldi go and what were some of the highlights?
It was incredible! Just being out there, playing my own music, and getting to play songs that really meant something to me – I’ve been touring for a very long time, and to get to play songs that I really put my own heart and emotions into – it was really meaningful.

The name of your album is Controlled Chaos. What do you mean by that title?
Controlled Chaos is kind of a statement about how there are two ways you can handle all of the chaos that goes on in your life, in your mind, and in everything around you. You can chose to be overcome by it or you could choose to control it and make something great out of it. And that’s what I tried to do with my album.

And what’s up next for you?
I will finish out doing some more touring in support of Controlled Chaos and then I’ll go back out on the road with Alice Cooper starting in June.

What does the She Rocks awards mean to you and how did you become involved?
They asked me to become involved and invited me years ago – and I liked the idea because I love bringing people together in an industry where – especially bringing women together in an industry that is dominated by men. Although I don’t like separating myself out as a woman in an industry, I do think it strengthens the community and it strengthens the people in the community to support each other. And it helps to put focus on self-confidence – and it’s also a great message for younger people.

Your latest album is called Lullaby Girl and there’s some covers on it. Did any of the artists you covered hear or comment on it?
They did! I actually sent the Fleetwood Mac song to Mick Fleetwood and he loved it. I know that Rainbow Connection – that Paul Williams loves our version of it. Also the guy who wrote Be My Baby – he listed to it and he thought it was really cool.

And tell me about the new album.
The new album is something I’m working on right now and I can’t really talk about it a lot till it’s out. But I am working on it.

And complete this sentence. If I have to play Stay (I Missed You) again live, I’ll…
I will make 25 cents and I will be very happy!
