(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.
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. Her 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 over 33,000 sales and 3 million streams across platforms.
2019 will be promising for Astræa, having featured in The Sun’s Sound of 2019 and already drawing acclaim from major tastemakers including Clash Magazine. She’s making waves on the London live scene, selling out her debut headline gig at St Pancras Old Church and playing the majestic St James’s Church Piccadilly. Intertwining organic and electronic elements in a lush and emotional set, her live act is one you wouldn't want to miss.
