Hear Kitty Kitty
For several years, Nikita La Tijera Meow (Kitty) has been one of LA’s best kept secrets. Kitty has built a musical pedigree working with a virtual "who's who" of the rock scene in LA.
Such standouts as Tommy Stinson (Replacements/Guns N’ Roses), John Dolmayan, (System of a Down), Gina Schock (Go-Gos), the legendary Kim Fowley (Runaways), Cordell Crockett (Ugly Kid Joe), Chris Vrenna (NIN) and multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, Pink) have been major influences as well as personal friends of Nikita's.
The band self-released their first LP, "Tails from the Alley" in 2009, featuring guest appearances and/or songwriting contributions from Tommy Stinson, Chris Vrenna, Gina Schock, Kim Fowley, Cordell Crockett and John Dolmayan.
In 2010, Hear Kitty Kitty signed an early record deal with EFM/UNIVERSAL Records. A single and video was released entitled "Moody". In support of this release, the band hit the road performing their first national tour. Exciting moments on the tour included appearances with Buckcherry, Drowning Pool and Quiet Riot. During this tour, Hear Kitty Kitty won over a rabid new national fan base. After returning to LA to record new tracks for their next release, the band hit the road again in 2011. This tour took them throughout the Midwest, Southwest and East Coast of the United States.
