You know how there's that saying don't meet your heroes because they won't live up to your expectations. Well those people must have shit heroes. Since I was about 14 years old Katy Steele has been one of my idols and not once has she ever been less than amazing. Tonight was no exception. The last time I saw Katy live was when she was performing with her band Little Birdy on my 16th birthday, which was over 5 years ago now. As I was watching her perform tonight, I couldn't help but notice that my perception of her has changed since I've grown up. Not in a bad way at all, I still idolise this woman, but instead of just seeing her as an incredible popstar, I now realised that I could relate to her and her lyrics.
Her gig tonight was a solo show at The Toff In Town, a much smaller and more intimate venue that Festival Hall where I last saw her. We got to hear her new EP, which was created in New York City, where she called home for the past couple of years. As well as the new tracks, we all had a good sing-a-long to some oldies including Relapse, Stay Wild and Brother.
