About Pixie Lott
Pixie was born Victoria Louise Lott in 1991 and was nick named pixie by her mother ‘because she was a tiny cute baby who looked like a fairy’. Lott started acting while in school and played Louisa Von Trapp in BBC one’s Celebrate The Sound Of Music; she also played a part in the West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. She was part of the chorus vocals on Roger Waters’ opera Ca Ira.

L.A.Reid, three-time Grammy Award winning American record producer and chairman and CEO of Island Def Jam Music Group, heard Pixie’s demo when she was fifteen and signed her to the label straight away. But some major bidding wars ensued, and Lott is now on Mercury Records in the UK and Interscope Record label in the US.

In June 2009, Pixie released her debut single Mama Do (Uh Oh Uh Oh). The track was a phenomenal success. It made it to number one on UK Singles Charts, after more than 50,000 record sales. It stayed on the Singles Chart for a week and stayed on the top of the UK Top 40 singles charts for nine weeks! The eighteen year old was ‘shocked at the success of the single’. American Billboard.com described Lott as being the ‘first British Female solo artist to make a number 1 debut in spite of not being launched off of a reality TV show’ Rumour has it that Lott wrote a song for X factor Winner of 2008 Alexandra Burke, and of course that Simon Cowell has approved it.

The second single Boys And Girls was physically released on the 7th of September. The single received mixed reviews, but peaked at number 4 on Irish Singles Charts and at number one on UK Singles Charts after opening at number 73.
Lott had her first festival concert experience performing at the Isle Of Wight Festival 2009. In August, Pixie was featured on MTV’s first ever Asian MTV World Stage Concert held in Malaysia. She featured on the show along with artists like Kasabian, Boys Like Girls and Raygun.

The album Turn It Up is slated to physically release on the 14th of September 2009. The album has received mixed reviews, some stating that the tracks rely heavily on cliché and that the real Pixie fails to shine through, while some raving about the ‘fun 60s sound’ of the record. Most reviews however, make no bones about the fact that she has a unique and strong voice and, lotts of potential as well!
