Libby Steel, Miss Me Review
Vocalist and songwriter Libby Steel was born and raised in the small rural dairy town of Cobden. While in high school, her mother was diagnosed with cancer and Steel’s life began to present her with unique challenges. Her father abandoned the family, fleeing overseas to pursue a new life. Steel found her life full of the unknown, but it was in music that she found her solace. Soon songwriting became a catharsis and survival tool. Her mother went on to raise and support four young women while in cancer remission. These experiences and the influence of strong women in her life and a supportive community has shaped the woman she is today. Steel’s inner strength can be heard in her singing and writing. She is the winner of the Triple J unearthed Queenscliff music festival competition and artist on St Kilda Festivals Best New Artist stage. The Australian alternative pop singer-songwriter has never forgotten her humble beginnings. After the 2018 St Patrick’s Bushfires, she organized the Bushfire Relief Festival, bringing artists statewide to support the cause. She raised over $15,000 for those affected by the fires. For Steel she says, “it’s about family, community and music.” Steel is now releasing “Miss Me,” her 6th single, which was recorded with producer Michael Stangel at the Medici Studio in Geelong. “Miss Me” features her deep and seductive voice with a clever pop sensibility.

Steel is not your usual pop chanteuse, her voice is mature and highly versatile and she uses it as an effective vehicle of expression.
