Pitmon played percussion in band and orchestra in high school.[2] She suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and drumming was a helpful way to manage her symptoms.[2] The first band she played with was Zuzu's Petals.[2] She plays with a minimal setup which she likes so that she can be flexible and "play around the beat."[2] She cites Jody Stephens from Big Star, Stan Lynch, Jim Keltner and Dave Mattacks as her influences.[2]

During the COVID era, she and her husband Steve Wynn performed thirty shows online from their home, via Facebook, using an iPad on a tripod.[3] For 2021 they are performing on the "Impossible Tour," which will be 13 hour-long shows where their studio space, the Chimp Factory, is redecorated to look like virtual versions of some of their favorite clubs worldwide.[3][4]
