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. Great songs, an incredible voice and a strong work ethic, original and charismatic stage presence and a unique artistic vision that sets the creative bar very high: this amazingly talented young singer recently signed to a worldwide publishing deal with BMG Scandinavia. Katéa has been writing music and performing since she was nine and has written some great songs, including her amazing debut single, “That Ain’t Love,” co-written with hot Swedish writer/producer team Moneybridge. The single has already seen success in Finland, as it was playlisted at YLEX, where it peaked at No.1 on the YLEX most wanted list. "That Ain't Love" has also been added to Yle Suomi, as well as all of their local stations and X3M, in addition to seeing airplay at Voice and Suomipop.
