Originally from Latvia, GITAA (whose name is the Sanskrit for "song"), recently made the trip to L.A where she now lives to embark on what looks set to be a fruitful career in music. Her latest single is the stripped back and very raw "Pain", a track she tells us is about not realising the power of your words and hurting those closest to you without even meaning to. With just her voice and a simple melody to lay it all out, "Pain" is as visceral as it gets when it comes to songwriting.
"I think everything is energy and energy is power," she explained to us via email. "As humans we need to take responsibility for what we say, in all of our relationships, including the one with ourselves. You may say something to someone that doesn’t mean much to you, but it alters the path they choose in this life, for better or for worse. Speak from love."
