Astræa (Ancient Greek: Ἀστραῖα; "star-maiden" or "starry night")
Emerging artist and producer Astræa creates a world of cathartic and soul-bearing music, embedding her ethereal vocals within a backdrop of piano-led pop surrounded by atmospheric and electronic production. Listed in The Sun’s Sound of 2019 as an artist to watch, the pianist singer-songwriter draws upon influence from classic artists like Tori Amos and Kate Bush with contemporary pop elements reminiscent of London Grammar and Lorde.
Astræa’s voice is instantly recognizable, as her self-produced cover of Olive’s You're Not Alone soundtracks the latest Lloyds Bank advert in the UK & Ireland. Independently self-released, You're Not Alone charted in iTunes UK Main Charts (#23) & Singer-Songwriter Charts (#2), Spotify UK Viral Charts (#18), and Shazam UK Charts (#6) and has so far achieved 33,000 sales and 3.2 million streams across platforms.
Astræa’s newest single Anybody Out There, premiered by Clash, features her touching and authentic lyrical style. The track speaks to the universal experience of loneliness while showcasing this rising talent’s skills as an artist, producer, and pianist.
Astræa is already making waves on the London live scene, having sold out her debut headline gig at St Pancras Old Church and now looking towards her next London performance at the beautiful St James’s Church Piccadilly in March 2019. Intertwining organic and electronic elements in a lush and emotional set, her live act is one you wouldn't want to miss.
