Rising singer/songwriter, Maeve Steele has released her airy and mesmerizing new single, “Slow Down” today. With lyrics that compliment the song’s instrumentals perfectly, Maeve sings about being present and savoring every moment we have in our uncertain world. Listen to the song now below.
“I’m singing to myself as much as anyone else in that song,” Steele explains. “There’s a lot of things in life we can’t control, and as I’m entering adulthood and watching everyone I love get older, I have to remind myself to step back and be present because the moments seem to go by faster and faster every day.”
Recorded with multi-platinum producer/mixer/engineer Brian Malouf (Michael Jackson, Madonna,) Steele’s songs are bittersweet meditations on growth, change, and self-discovery, profound works of introspection wrapped in effervescent pop packaging that belies their true emotional depth. She draws on everything from roots music to disco in her writing, and the juxtaposition of such wildly disparate sonic influences only serves to heighten the boundless sense of freedom and curiosity at play in her lyrics.
