With her debut album ‘Turn It Up’ set to release September 7th , Pixie Lott has already made it big with her UK number one single “Mamma Do” . She has even recently been referred to as Britain’s answer to Lady Gaga.  At the young age of 14, answered a classified ad in The Stage that would eventually take her to New York where she would start writing and recording her first demos. It was there that she started her career started to blossom.

She was eventually signed with both UK’s Mercury Records and Interscope in the US last year after a change of managers. The 18 year old has a knack for song writing, a quirky voice and killer dance moves that sets her apart from the majority of pop stars out there today. She also has high aspirations of becoming famous along with visiting amazing places and meeting amazing peoples during her career. And the name? Turns out it’s not just a stage name. She has been going by Pixie since she was baby. She was a “tiny, cute baby” who looked like a fairy says her mother.  Pixie’s real name is Victoria, but we think Pixie is a bit catchier.

Her idols include Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani and Rhianna whom she admires for both their musicality and fierce senses of style. She enjoys listening to The Strokes and The Kooks as well. But when it comes down to it, Pixie is just Pixie. “There has to be an emotional strength and an honesty in what I’m singing, whether the lyrics I’ve written by myself or not. I need to mean it to sing it.” With a style that is all her own, we hope to see big things from her in the future. If you haven’t already, be sure to download her single on iTunes (not available in the US store yet) and catch her album to release in September. You can even pre-order the £8.98 album, Turn It Up, from Amazon.co.uk.
