Artist Of The Week

Katéa, an incredibly gifted Helsinki, Finland-based chanteuse whose musical sounds are inspired by Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lorde, Florence + The Machine, Tove Lo and Lana Del Rey, is one of the most inspiring new female artists to emerge in recent years and is poised for global success. Her music is a unique blend of indie-folk and experimental pop, crafting songs with both piano and guitar-driven tracks topped with bright, yet strong, warm and heartfelt vocals. Her debut single, "That Ain't Love," which was co-written with the Swedish writer/producer team Moneybridge and earned airplay in a number of countries. Her second single, "Louder" was just released and is already in the Top 50 most viral songs in Finland and found its way into radio Ylex's playlist and has earned over 20,000 streams on Spotify in a matter of days. Katea's music was world-premiered exclusively on Passport Approved back in 2014 as a new music pre-discovery artist.
