Katy Steele

Katy Steele
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 the band she fronts – LITTLE BIRDY – have been described as “Lucinda Williams meets Kate Bush via Beck” with their intimate and engaging performances.

LITTLE BIRDY have released three albums in their homeland to rave reviews and each album has spent time in the top end of the Australian charts. The band’s most recent album, CONFETTI, is the most acclaimed of the band’s career and was the #1 highest selling Australian album in 2009. CONFETTI has been certified GOLD making it the third consecutive album for the band to reach gold sales status.

KATY STEELE relocated to New York in 2009 to begin work on her first solo album. Katy’s move to the ‘big apple’ 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”.

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 solo performances Katy is front of stage alone with her guitar and keys but armed with that unmistakable voice and poignant lyrics.
