• "Kevin McWha Steele’s new single, “Les Choses Sont Pas Si Simples”, might sound like it’s coming to you straight from a Parisian cafe, but channels Serge Gainsbourg straight into Brooklyn. Don’t worry if French isn’t your native tongue; the emotional appeal of Kevin McWha Steele’s croon transcends the limitations of language..."
    - YabYum West, November 2017

  • "... Heavy on the retro-rock vibe ‘Front Page News’ is the first single lifted from forthcoming album The Nightly Howl (#2 album in three album series The Ariel Trilogy). Taking its influence from late-’60s/early-’70s stalwarts, ‘Front Page News’ bears comparison with stellar names from those eras – The Kinks, Small Faces, T. Rex and Faces; not bad company at all. Fitted with sweet licks, addicting riffs, ballsy swagger and a stomping beat and groove, this is a sumptuous slice of retro rock ‘n roll cool. The confidence and ambition of both the arrangement and song, makes for an irresistible three-minutes of stellar songwriting and rock and roll."
    - BARRYGRUFF (Dublin, Ireland), October 2017

  • "... Kevin's vocals are smooth as steel and just as the gentle strumming in "Les Choses Sont Pas Si Simples" lulls one to sleep, the percussion bursts onto the stage making for an arousing work of art..."

  • "(Front Page News)... Te gustará si te gusta: David Bowie, T-Rex"
    - Velvety (Madrid, Spain), August 2017

  • "Brooklyn is unquestionably one of the United States’ music meccas. The pipeline of talent coming out of one of the Big Apple’s five boroughs is endless. It also means that the competition just to get noticed is fierce. But when an artist like Kevin McWha Steele emerges and is able to create meaningful songs that sound great, it only becomes a matter of time before tastemasters gravitate to him... The song (Front Page News) is in our queue... Loved the '70s vibe in the song (also reminiscent of White Denim and Woods), and the lyrics are really good (mucho thanks for that)."

  • "(Front Page News) I'm a huge fan of rock n'roll and I think you do it well..." 
    - Lost in the Manor (London, UK), Feb 2017

  • "A cross between (Bowie's) Ziggy Stardust and Serge Gainsbourg..." 
    - Veglam Magazine

  • "Bilingual troubadour glam, as it should be" 
    - NXNE Music Festival

  • "Kevin is a brilliantly versatile modern singer/songwriter who can rock furiously as well as deliver languid french chansons in a smooth as silk crooner's voice. There is always something arresting going on in his extremely well-crafted and catchy songs. He deserves to be alot better known." 
    - Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley, Gods and Monsters)

  • "Kevin has a beautiful voice." 
    - Philip Glass​, Dec 2016

  • "Les Choses Sont Pas Si Simples" reminds me of my favorite record of all time Jeff Buckley's "Live at Sin-é." It's minimalistic, the voice is gorgeous and soaring. It's almost like a chanteuse. This is very seductive and talented music... (Kevin) mixes the dreamy and the spooky with spectacular results." 
    - Reverb Nation, Jan 2017

  • "Kevin's band could go from sounding lyrical like Jeff Buckley, to something fierce and rockin' on a dime,... like Credence or John Lennon"
    - Montauk Music Festival (Solé East), 2012-2016


  • "Like a French singing Chris Isaak... "
    - Mercury Lounge, Jan 2017


  • "...Eclectic and unique. This songwriter is just loaded with artistic creativity and experienced musicianship. The vocals are executed with a fierce commitment to character and tonality..."

  • "Kevin McWha Steele is a prolific and very talented singer, songwriter and performer whose music has both catchy and enduring appeal"
    - Song Revelation Magazine

  • "Kevin McWha Steele's album "Ki & The Arrowtooth Waltz" is utterly brilliant, diverse and highly innovative."
    - ACUVI

  • "Funky, edgy and full of attitude....vocal delivery during the verses reminds me of "Young Americans" era David Bowie. These compositions infectious beats and well framed melodic design accentuate thematic intent and further magnify it's late seventies aesthetic... further enhanced by the sassy female backing vocals and the steady accuracy of the rhythm section."
