Underneath the Ice
City Canyons Records, an independent label based in Manhattan proudly introduces UK rocker, David Steele's debut album UNDERNEATH THE ICE. Steele comes from a part of England-the village of Brill- that inspired 'Lord of the Rings' writer Tolkien, and Steele's lyrics are, indeed, at times darkly magical. But that's only part of the talented young Englishman's story. While his tunes can be intense and haunting, as epitomized by 'Words and Rhythm' they can also thrillingly soar as does, for example, 'Rise Up'. Whatever their mood, Steele's sophisticated self-penned songs are firmly rooted in reality, reflecting the hopes, the despair, the yearning in all of us. And even at their darkest, Steele's music is never chilly. His remarkable voice is warm and intimate-somewhere between Sting and Bono-and wherever he takes you with his music, he's with you every step of the way. That music, featuring Steele's own superb guitar work, is distinctive, utterly his own, but if one were forced to make comparisons, one could put him somewhere between Coldplay and David Grey and be in the ballpark.
