"Kate Steele has a truly beautiful voice and a real natural way with a song."
"Her arrangements tread a fine line between country and folk, throwing in dobro and mandolin from time to time as accents. The result is one of the finest first outings I have ever heard, and I already look forward to the next."
"Following the best in the singer-song writer tradition, Steele’s music presents honest and playful, if somewhat melancholy, reflections on life.
"Curve of the Earth Steele’s debut album, is a set of roots music as serious as She & Him’s similarly vintage recent set is campy, eleven songs crackling into flame and billowing up into the prairie air."
"Just another chick with a guitar? I suppose- but when you hear lines like “the first time that I told you that I love you/ we were listening to Dylan/ and I was talking to him” you have to appreciate the way she looks around the corners."
