Synth-Pop artist Nite Jewel is set to perform a fantastic set at the Pyramid Scheme this coming Thursday July 20th.  Nite Jewel is the stage name of Los Angeles based musician and performance artist Ramona Gonzalez. Raised in the Bay Area, Gonzalez began recording under the name Nite Jewel in 2008.  In 2009 she released her first album titled Good Morning

In 2012, she signed with Secretly Canadian for her album One Second of Love, which went in a more pop oriented direction.  Unsatisfied with the poppy direction of the album and the label interference, Gonzalez left the label. In her view she felt that the label was " making the process feel toxic because they were putting too much pressure on me to create something that, I didn’t really even know what they wanted me to do".  Following a small hiatus, she released Liquid Cool through her own label Gloriette in 2016.  Her most recent album, Real High, was released this past May.
