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.
Ashley Beedle's remix of "Let's Run Wild" takes the original's smooth sound, and cranks things up a gear, creating a sonically powerful track that promises peak-time dancefloor action an
d a rattling of soundsystems worldwide. On the B-side, Klic (better known under his alternative alias 'Medlar') creates a big and bassy house/garage hybrid using cut up vocals. B-side bonus track "Fall Into Light" shifts the mood back to the dark atmospherics that hold this project together, and describes a powerful tale of desire and forbidden romance, while an electric ride of stripped-back beats takes you on an effortless journey through the music.
Imagine a female Serge Gainsbourg produced by the RZA. "Let's Run Wild" covers a whole range of sounds and emotions, and reaches out from the depths of the subconscious to grab you by the scruff of the neck and demand repeated listening.
"Beca is a young New York artist who started out studying composition at Juilliard but who has since turned her talents toward making wispy, ethereal electro-pop." -Stereogum
"Listening to Beca is like wandering around New York. Sure, she's got a love for great pop hooks but since when was that a crime?" -Clash Music
"Get to know Beca before she breaks into the music scene in a big way." -The Tune
