Famous Rock Singer in Brazil.
Profile Bio Text
Pitty was born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, the daughter of a musician. She spent much of her childhood in Porto Seguro, another Brazilian town, also in Bahia state. She grew up listening to various bands, including The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Faith No More, Pantera, Nirvana and Metallica.
In 1996, she moved back to Salvador and played in various garage bands. She was the vocalist for the hardcore band Inkoma, and released several albums with the band. When Inkoma ended, she was invited by the producer Rafael Ramos to record a solo album.
In 2003, she released her debut album Admirável Chip Novo, which sold more than 250,000 copies, being certified Platinum. The singles "Máscara", "Admirável Chip Novo" and "Teto de Vidro" were successful in Brazil, and "Equalize" hit number one. The album title was inspired by Aldous Huxley`s Brave New World (translated to Portuguese as "Admirável Mundo Novo").
After Admirável Chip Novo, the expectations for Pitty`s second album were high. Her second album, Anacrônico is heavier and more daring than its predecessor. It sold more than 150,000 (Platinum). During an interview around the release of her second album, Pitty and her band said that they had listened to too much Queens of the Stone Age while recording the album. The influence is clear, especially in the heavy and slow songs, "lightly and tireless feeling of Josh Homme stand in air".
Her biggest hits to date were "Admirável Chip Novo", "Equalize", "Máscara", "Memórias", "Na Sua Estante" and "Pulsos".
