SATE releases LP, plays shows (2016)

After releasing several powerful tracks to critical acclaim over the past year, SATE’s debut album RedBlack&Blue has arrived. The build up to RedBlack&Blue has been underway for over a year, starting with a hugely successful Pledgemusic campaign that helped produce three digital-only independent EPs. RedBlack&Blue was then compiled from what donors chose as their favorite 10 tracks from these releases. SATE is bringing her sultry blend of blues-rock to fans on her debut album, and in person – she’ll be hitting the road this summer, including a date at the Afropunk Festival in New York.

With her trademark black lips and platinum Mohawk, the Toronto vocalist and songwriter leads a dynamic band combining blistering hard rock with gritty funk. The empowering messages embedded in her music, and her soul shaking live show, have quickly built SATE’s reputation as an artist impossible to ignore. Even Canada’s national daily newspaper, the Globe & Mail, declared her full length debut album, RedBlack&Blue one of 2016’s most anticipated releases.
RedBlack&Blue is the natural result of that live experience, and the culmination of a lifetime spent  fully immersed in music of all forms and shades. As the daughter of Canada’s first lady of blues and jazz Salome Bey, SATE learned at the feet of countless music legends that passed through Toronto during her childhood. She soon found her own voice by adding the sounds and attitudes of punk and hard rock that shaped her own identity and set her upon her journey. That journey is in fact only just beginning. The release of RedBlack&Blue will finally introduce SATE to a wider world clamoring for new voices to pick up the torch passed down from our rapidly disappearing rock and roll elders. SATE was born to bear that responsibility, and in the end, everyone will be sated.
