MAEVE STEELE (@steele_maeve) – “No Control”
Pop-Noir songstress and blue-velvet vocalist Maeve Steele revives the timeless iconography that redefined commercial music. Born and raised in the larger-than-life Bay Area, CA, Maeve Steele was baptized by San Francisco’s paradigmatic summer of love melodies, captivated by counter-culture pioneers and rock n’ roll originators. Immersed in a haven for untamed creative souls, Maeve’s artistry was driven by a synergy of folk, rock, hip-hop, soul and new-wave pop. Her innate, uncompromising and eclectic love of music led her to become a classically trained violinist, later learning to play guitar and piano. Boasting intoxicating, cocktail-pop instrumentation and effortless swagger, Maeve holds the written word to a sanctified standard. A champion on behalf of raw realism, Steele’s lyricism allows universality to sound extraordinary, adorning plain-spoken poetry with progressive pop production. Her debut project MAEVE STEELE— a dual single release—allows her skill to speak for itself. Alongside emerging producer Cole Phillips and Grammy- nominated engineer Robert Venable (Twenty One Pilots, Kelly Clarkson), Maeve Steele established herself as a major player with the singles Real and Tourist. Steele’s next era began with No Control—the leading track from her upcoming sophomore project.
