Caterina Nix is a new coming singer chosen by Frontiers Records to release a solo album written and produced by famed guitarist, songwriter and producer Timo Tolkki (former Stratovarius composer and guitarist). Also, Caterina has been opening act for bands like After Forever, Edguy, Within Temptation and Nightwish.
The name of the album is “Chaos Magic”, and was released in July 2015. She was also appointed to sing on Timo Tolkki’s Avalon II, titled “Angels of the Apocalypse“, released May 2014, where she shares tracks with singers Simone Simons (Epica), Elize Ryd (Amaranth) and Floor Jansen (Nightwish), singing in two songs: “High Above Of Me” and “Angels of the Apocalypse”.
Caterina’s interest in singing and in music started at an early age, joining several rock bands since her adolescence. She has soprano vocal range and has received both classical and pop singing training. However, she began gaining notoriety when she and her former band Aghonya released their first album “Oxygen”, in 2008, in which she wrote all lyrics and vocal lines. Although the record was released independently, the band and Caterina garnered critical acclaim, which led to opening for bands like After Forever, Edguy and Within Temptation.
To date, Caterina works as a solo artist consistently performing live. She had the chance to open Nightwish’s show in Santiago, Chile, on October 2015, where she was chosen by the production among hundreds of applicants.
