Incredibly talented guitarist Nita Strauss is known for her virtuosic skill-set on the axe, particularly touring with some of the best. Strauss has toured with Alice Cooper for years and has recently started touring with Demi Lovato for the HOLY FVCK tour. The instrumentalist also released a sick track with Disturbed‘s David Draiman last year called ‘Dead Inside‘.
Strauss has now released new single ‘Summer Storm‘ via Sumerian Records. The track is a four-minute shred session with an accompanying video, sharing a glance of her life on the road / on-stage. It doesn’t take much to see how much she just loves rocking out and jamming to some head-banging tunes, however this time it’s all about her. ‘Summer Storm‘ is an effortless swarm of technical riffs showcasing just a fraction of what this woman can do and it would make for a great live performance.
On the latest single, she comments:
“Instrumental music is where my heart is, and Summer Storm might be the song I feel captures my personal style the most: cathartic, driving and emotional. While a lot of the upcoming record will have guest vocalists, I’m also so proud of the instrumental tracks and excited to officially unleash this one on the world!”
Looking forward to seeing whether a broader release is on the cards for Strauss, watch this space.
