Among rock fans, 2022 will be remembered as the year when Nita Strauss left Alice Cooper’s band to join Demi Lovato. But to everyone’s surprise, Lovato’s music is very rock-oriented. And it turns out that Nita fits in perfectly.
Even Demi Lovato confirmed this in a recent exchange with Variety. She brought in an all-female band and is currently promoting her latest album “Holy Fvck.” Discussing the band and Nita Strauss, Lovato said:
“Once the sonic journey that my latest album, ‘Holy Fvck,’ takes listeners on became clear. I knew I wanted to bring in a band for the ‘Holy Fvck Tour’ that is not just very skilled at live instruments, but also know how to have a good time on stage, and are performers in their own right.”
“Nita fit that description and more – we have so much fun rocking out in rehearsals and on stage. My band also happens to be all-female, which is empowering to me. Working alongside Nita has helped me rebuild my skills on the guitar and she’s definitely someone who I learn from each day. I admire Nita for being such a bad-ass rock guitarist in a male-dominated field.“
Nita also shared a few words on this gig, explaining:
“I’m really excited about my next chapter. That’s everything from working with Demi to my new solo album.“
She also reflected on Demi Lovato’s new sound:
“Obviously, it’s a huge departure from what Demi did before. To see her fans embrace it with open arms, in a country where few speak English, is phenomenal to see. They’re even screaming the words to the new songs along with Demi, and the record is just out.“
