For several years Nikita LaTijera Meow has been one of L.A.'s best kept secrets. Nikita has been building a musical pedigree working with a virtual "who's who" of the rock scene in LA. Such stands outs as Tommy Stinson (The Replacements / Guns N'Roses), John Dolymayan (System of a Down), Gina Schock (The Go-Go's), the legendary Kim Fowley (The Runaways), Cordell Crockett (Ugly Kid Joe), Chris Vrenna (NIN) have been major influences as well as personal friends of Nikita's.
Of course, finding a dedicated musicians who are able to survive being in a living, breathing touring band in L.A. is much harder than people think. Hear Kitty Kitty has persevered and grown, evolving into their current and final line-up, including guitarist Jonny Kat, a fixture in the band since its inception, bassist Jeloh, and drummer Tiffy Tom Tom, and of course, lead vocalist, Nikita LaTijera.
The band self-released their first LP, "tails from the Alley", in 2009, featuring guest appearances and/or song writing contributions form Tommy Stinson,Chris Vrena, Gina Schock, Kim Fowley, Cordell Crockett and John Dolmayan.
In 2010, Hear Kitty Kitty signed an early record deal with EFM/Universal Records. A single and video was released entitled "Moody". In support of this release, the band hit the road performing their first national tour. Exciting moments on the tour included Buckcherry, Drowning Pool. and Quiet Riot. During this tour Hear Kitty Kitty won over a rabid new national fan base.
After returning to L.A. to record new tracks for their next release, the band hit the road again in 2011. This tour took them throughout the Midwest, Southwest and East Coast of the United States.
Never ones to neglect their hometown roots, Hear Kitty Kitty has been a regular draw at such world renowned Sunset Strip showcases as The Viper Room, The House of Blues on Sunset, The Key Club, and The Roxy. They revisit these haunts frequently.
