Victoria "Pixie" Louise Lott (b. 1991) is an English singer-songwriter who was born in Brentwood, Essex.  Her nickname "Pixie" stems from how her mother thought she looked like a fairy when she just was a baby.  Pixie did some  theatre performances as well as chorus line while growing up.  After recording some demos, a bidding war between Island Def Jam and Mercury Records came about.  Eventually, Lott went with Mercury and released her debut #1 single, "Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)", in 2009.  Pixie's first album, Turn It Up, followed that same year.  It boasted another #1 single and three top 20 singles.  The album will be re-released as Turn It Up: Louder with two new singles in late 2010.  ¶  I assumed Amy Winehouse's vintage influence on pop had worn off in England, but Pixie apparently didn't get the memo.  However, she's generally less Motown.  Her first ballad single "Cry Me Out" is a soulful Britpop take on R&B.  Lott has a rich voice, but it lacks some control on parts of this track.
