Katy Steele (CANCELLED)
KATY STEELE is an ARIA Award (Australian Grammy Awards) nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist.
Katy's vocal range, songwriting, and sartorial splendour have attracted favourable comparisons to PJ Harvey and Chrissie Hynde and her Australian band – LITTLE BIRDY – where described as "Lucinda Williams meets Kate Bush via Beck" with their intimate and engaging performances.
LITTLE BIRDY released three albums in their homeland to rave reviews and each album spent time in the top end of the Australian charts, including a #1 highest selling Australian album in 2009 and three consecutive albums to reach gold sales status.
In 2009, KATY STEELE relocated to New York to begin work on her first solo album. Katy's move to the Brooklyn heralds a new phase in her career, she explains "Living in New York is quite the experience, it's like nothing I've ever known and I've never felt so challenged, pressured, pushed and alive before. It's exactly what I wanted". The move has also led to an evolution in Katy's style and sound that will excite and surprise old and new fans alike.
Katy has extensive live experience both with her band and as a solo performer. She has played shows to crowds of a few hundred at intimate venues like the famous Spiegeltent and also performed to thousands of folks at festivals like the Big Day Out. Katy has also supported REM, Bright Eyes, and most recently Richard Ashcroft and the United Nations Of Sound on their Australian tour.
For her new performances Katy has assembled a new band to perform songs from her forthcoming solo debut single, EP and album release in the next six months.
The Gentleman Brawlers sound like Led Zeppelin if that group had been fascinated with Afrobeat and Samba instead of American Blues and Rockabilly. They've been compared to the Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Crosby Stills & Nash.
