Bitch's musical journey has taken her from classical-violin training
in the suburbs to experimental flicks in NYC. After leaving the
outskirts of Detroit for the artier charms of Chicago—Bitch's
unconventional and outspoken approach to performance caught the
attention of a number of indie luminaries. She took fiddling lessons
with Andrew Bird, serendipitously stumbled upon future co-conspirator,
Animal at acting school, moved to New York to make their own 'theater'
(Bitch and Animal) and recorded and toured with Ani DiFranco (who
released Bitch and Animal's records on Righteous Babe). This
association yielded an international following, introducing the world
to Bitch’s left-of-center and controversial brand of performance.
Bitch's latest record, Blasted! (release date spring 2010), is an
outgrowth of that newfound creative spirit, a real labor of love and
her strongest solo album to date. The melodies are catchy and haunting
and the lyrics unflinchingly honest. Bitch plays electric violin like
a rock guitar, and adds layers of unique instrumentation to create a
sonic symphony. Blasted! is fully self-produced and will be released
with money raised by Bitch's loyal fan base. With Blasted!, Bitch
continues to push the envelope with her wild-spirited avant-garde
“theatrical punk” sound and has produced her most listenable and
enjoyable album to date.
