"Kevin McWha Steele is a brilliantly versatile modern singer/songwriter who can rock furiously as well as deliver languid french chansons in a smooth as silk crooner's voice. There is always something arresting going on in his extremely well-crafted and catchy songs. He deserves to be alot better known."
- Gary Lucas, May 2012
"Recently cited as 'a cross between (Bowie's) Ziggy Stardust and Serge Gainsbourg' in Veglam Magazine, Steele brings his own unique blend of French-Anglo pop, folk, rock and jazz to the stage. Recent releases include a 21-track self-titled LP (February 2012) and a glam rock concept album "Ki & The Arrowtooth Waltz" (May 2011). Squealing, eye-rolling and/or profanities welcome!"
- PR Newswire, January 2012
"In Kevin's set the band could go from sounding lyrical like Jeff Buckley, to something fierce and rockin' on a dime,... like Credence or John Lennon..."
