As well as wowing fans all over the world as Cooper's touring guitarist, gracing the covers of Guitar World and Guitar Player, performing for millions upon millions of WWE fans worldwide at "Wrestlemania" and "Evolution", becoming the first female to have a signature Ibanez guitar (which now hangs in the entrance to the legendary Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd ), breaking attendance records at guitar clinics across the country, playing "America The Beautiful" at the the Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams NFL game last year and being interviewed about her strict fitness regime in the likes of Muscle & Fitness Hers, Nita also found time to write, produce, engineer and record all guitar and bass parts on her debut solo album, "Controlled Chaos".

Having launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of the record, which reached its goal in two hours and ended up being over 800% funded , Nita signed a deal with world renowned independent record label, Sumerian Records, which released the album worldwide in November. "Controlled Chaos" is a complete expression of who Nita is as an artist and yet another example of the truly unstoppable force she is.

Speaking about her solo debut, Nita says: "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."

"Controlled Chaos" will be released on vinyl on April 12, with several variants available.

* Worldwide retail version features a red vinyl and is available from all usual outlets
* Yellow with black splatter variant exclusively available from
* Clear vinyl with black and gold splatter variant exclusively available from
* Red transparent vinyl with white splatter variant exclusively available from Guitar Center
* Nordic exclusive transparent yellow vinyl available from select retailers

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 honored at this year's She Rocks Awards as the recipient of the "Inspire" award that was presented to her by her lifelong hero Steve Vai.

As well as performing with 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.
