A direct descendant of Henry E. Steinway, the founder of Steinway & Sons, Kate Steinway’s earliest musical memories are of her grandfather playing his original compositions on their family’s 1946 Steinway piano. Formerly the youngest member of the Los Angeles Children’s Choir and a student of famed opera singer, Suzanna Guzmán, Steinway has been studying voice since she could speak. In 2015, Steinway, a lifetime learner and lover of music, became involved with The Songwriting School of Los Angeles. It is there that she met her future singing and touring partners, Chloë Agnew (of Celtic Woman fame), Mary Bee and Danielle Carter. In May 2015, Steinway packed up her ukulele and embarked on an eight month backpacking tour of South America and Southeast Asia where she experienced world music firsthand. In the Summer of 2016, along with Bee and Carter, Steinway co-headlined the New England based “Blueprints” Tour. Steinway and Bee closed the tour with a sold out concert featuring Celtic Woman’s Chloë Agnew.
In 2017, Steinway, kicked off the year with two performances at the famed Sundance Film Festival. She then embarked on a 85+ show tour of California’s wine country and Hawaii. One of her biggest hilights was her on-air TVperformance the KKFX news. In December she recorded and released a series of Christmas videos which were nominated for Best Holiday Video on LA Music Critic’s Indie Voice Blog.
In 2018, the ukulele player kicked off the year with two more performances at the Sundance Film Festival. In March she opened for and played with Artimus Pyle at the Atlanta Motor Speedway Stadium for the Georgia Tiny House Festival. In mid-March Steinway’s debut album, “True North,” released on streaming and is available everywhere. The EP was well received by top music blogs Music Connection and LA Music Critic’s Indie Voice Blog. In the spring and summer, Steinway will return to CA’s wine country to tour.
