Kingston Indie Series
Jennifer Velva Bernstein Performance Hall
Emilie Steele & The Deal are a grab bag of catchy hooks and toe tapping turnarounds, delivered with a spirited life force.
The band cut their teeth gigging around Kingston before releasing their 2019 eponymous EP of unabashed indie rock, colourfully animated retro ditties, and reaching alt-country ballads. Steele's animated delivery, vocal melodies and clever turns of phrase soar alongside the weaving riffs and driving rhythms of powerhouse bandmates Jack Lockridge, Jon Irwin, and Kiel Vereecken.
