The ex circus performer, now singer and songwriter, Neon Hitch, is not your typical pop recording artist. Her (real) name alone hints at the direction of her destiny. Her story began in Kingston-Upon-Thames, England as her family’s home burned down the day of Neon’s birth, forcing them into a wanderlust lifestyle. Neon and family began their journey by traveling throughout Europe on a bus pulling a caravan bought with the cash Neon “earned” for appearing in a BBC documentary about her family. Neon soon honed circus skills everywhere from festivals to freak shows, where she learned to swing fire and do trapeze. It’s hard not to stop and take notice of this bold, British-born bohemian – both visually and sonically. In addition to sporting her signature strawberry pink hair, Neon makes her own clothes, sells her own jewelry and headscarves, and has many tattoos that highlight her life’s odyssey (including “Amy” inscribed on her finger as an homage to former flatmate Amy Winehouse). Neon now lives between Hollywood, CA, and New York City. “Home is where I lay my headscarf,” she says.
