About Pixie Lott
Pixie Lott is one of the music industry's fastest-rising young stars. Her career started in her early teens, where she studied at Italia Conti Associates School and appeared on London's West End. Her soulful style and vintage looks attracted some serious attention from the beginning. When she was only 15 years old, legendary music mogul L.A. Reid signed her up to his label Island Def Jam Records. However, after an influx of fans from her MySpace page created a fierce bidding war to manage her, Pixie transferred to Mercury Records in the UK and Interscope in the USA, and started releasing music to an eager audience. Her first single, Mama Do uh oh, uh oh, debuted at No. 1 in the UK and her first album, Turn It Up, released in 2009, achieved platinum status after five of the singles released from it broke into the top 20.
Her second album, Young, Foolish, Happy, was released in 2011 and further cemented her success. Containing collaborations with industry heavyweights Stevie Wonder, John Legend and Tinchy Stryder, she continued to blend classic soul with her unique modern twist. With influences from the Motown music of the sixties to modern-day divas Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, she has a soulful voice that echoes sounds from past era, but her catchy pop melodies keep her music fresh and relevant.
Her talent has attracted the accolades of the industry too. In 2009 she won two MTV Europe Music Awards, taking the trophies for Best Breakthrough Act and Best Act from Britain and Ireland. She was nominated for three BRIT Awards the following year, including a nomination for Best British Female Solo Artist. In 2010 she headlined The Crazycats Tour, supported The Saturdays tour and was warm-up act for Rhianna during the UK dates for her Last Girl on Earth tour. She has performed at several festivals, including The Isle of Wight Festival and an appearance on the main stage at V Festival in the summer of 2010.
Her unique blend of vintage and modern music styles is mirrored in her personal fashion styling. Pixie has co-designed several clothing collections for Lipsy, as well as regularly featuring on the 'best-dressed' pages of the press. She has also written songs for other artists, including a song titled You Broke My Heart for Alexandra Burke's debut album, Overcome.
