Artist Of The Week

Buzzing Finnish chanteuse Katéa, whose musical sounds are often compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lorde, Florence Welch, Tove Lo and Lana Del Rey due to her dark and husky voice, 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. This amazingly talented singer signed a worldwide publishing deal with BMG Scandinavia and released her debut single in 2015, “That Ain’t Love,” co-written with the Swedish writer/producer team Moneybridge, which earned airplay in a number of countries. Her Louder EP reached the Top 50 most viral songs in Finland, has over 12,000 Shazam tags and has acquired over 1 million streams on Spotify. She’s returned with new music, her first since her debut EP, with the track “Better Now,” which has been played at national radio in Finland and added to several Spotify playlists.
