A member of rock band little birdy for almost a decade, Katy Steele embarked on her solo career in 2016 and moved into the alternative music scene with her debut album, ‘HUMAN’.
With this album, Steele has emerged as a fully-fledged solo artist. As sole songwriter and co-producer, Katy Steele has crafted a unique record that is sonically adventurous and bold; nothing about this new direction is subtle or safe. Combining gospel-like melodies with fractured, glitch-ridden electro-pop production, ‘Human’ marks a refreshing and timely presence within the pop music landscape. ‘Human’ debuted at #23 on the ARIA Album chart and was showcased on Double J as their Feature Album.
The LP has gathered glowing reviews with the likes of The Sydney Morning Herald declaring “plugging the songwriter and co-producer into the modern alternative-pop landscape via atmospheric digital percussion and conducive electronic rock arrangements.” And Forte stating “Human…marks a seriously bold return to the industry … at times gospel, haunting and with tribal rhythms underpinning each track. …The pop tones are still there, but they’re darker, wiser and more worldly than before.”
Katy’s 2016 tour in support of ‘HUMAN’ also gathered glowing reviews. “The powerful vocalist left audiences floored with her energetic live show, The Music declared of her hometown performance in Perth. “The show had a cheeky tenacity to it, Steele never waiting around or slowing down. Her enthusiasm on stage was infectious…with catchy, disco-like offbeat that pushed dance-floor festivities into full delirium. An artist that means business and knows how to deliver, tonight’s performance proved that no matter how much time passes, Katy Steele will stay on top.”
Speaking to Rolling Stone about her recent tour Katy stated “I’m bursting with energy on stage because I’m so happy to be out there again,” she says, referencing her six-year break from performing. “You can imagine as an artist that was used to being on stage every night, I was starved of the one thing I loved doing more than anything, so it’s been absolutely insane getting out there again.”
So, get up close and personal with Katy Steele while you can, in the intimate and luxurious The Backlot Perth, as Katy talks with Around The Sound‘s Bob Gordon about her music and inspiration and plays a selection of his songs just for you.
