Neon Hitch

"Hi! My name is Neon Hitch (yes my hippy parents actually put that on my birth certificate)... I grew up on a bus traveling the world as a street performer and trapeze artist. I make my own clothes, and believe rules were made to be broken. At 16 i ran away to India and lived there for a while which gave me some amazing stories to tell my grandchildren..."

Neon Hitch's kaleidoscopic tastes in her clothes and music may make her seem eccentric or like an outsider, but she is actually quite familiar. She is that one who always seemed to make her own fun. The one who didn't need drugs or drink, but instead a good idea and an open place. You probably don't remember her because you probably ignored her or avoided her because she did things you wouldn't dream of doing. Or you simply never noticed. Unless you are open-minded like the Streets and you signed her to your label the Beats. In any case, it is her imagination that has matured into a Katzenjammer-ish cover of Snoop Dogg's "Drop It Like It's Hot" set to a second-line rhythm. And a reggaeton-meets-American-Idol anthem like "Blacks And Blues."

Or she could really just be the Snapple to fill-in-the-blank-female-pop-star's Minute Maid; same thing, different packaging. After the Streets' label folded, she moved to the States and linked up with Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Mike Posner). Since then she has worked with artists ranging from Imogen Heap to Rivers Cuomo. She co-wrote several popular songs, including Friday Night Boys' "Stupid Love Letter," Ke$ha's "Blah Blah Blah" and 3OH!3's "Follow Me Down" from the Almost Alice soundtrack. She is currently working on her debut album, Beg, Borrow, and Steal, with Blanco.
