Hite is singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Julia Easterlin. The new moniker marks a new direction for Hite; as Julia Easterlin she made her initial reputation by looping and layering her voice to create her music. She began to move away from this style on her album “Touristes,” a collaboration with famed Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Toure. Her latest album, “Light of a Strange Day,” is “a natural progression, away from loops and into more flexible, expressive forms of storytelling.” See her latest music video HERE.
