Artist Profile: Neon Hitch
Neon Hitch has definitely lived an interesting life. Born in the London countryside, the singer grew up as part of a clan of traveling street performers before running off to live in India at sixteen. A stateside move to New York led to gigs writing and singing backup for acts like Ke$ha, Friday Night Boys and Weezer's Rivers Cuomo.
But with her debut Beg, Borrow and Steal, set for release next spring, Neon Hitch seems intent on getting her own share of the spotlight. Listening to quirky dance tracks like "What Starry Eyes Know," a fantastic cover of Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot," and the darkly catchy "Black and Blues," with its somber subject matter, provide evidence that she may not have to wait for long.
