    Canada / Vancouver, British Columbia

    Genre:

    Melodic Hard Rock , Melodic Rock

    Info:

    At the age of 24, Chrissy Steele was already a veteran of the British Columbia bar scene with her band Reform School when she was asked to join The Headpins in late 1989, following the departure of Darby Mills. Along with original members Bryan MacLeod on guitars and drummer Bernie Aubin, they did two tours over the next six months, but tragedy struck the rock world when MacLeod was diagnosed with cancer. Amidst the turmoil of this and growing unrest with their label Solid Gold, it was decided the album already in the works should be released as Chrissy's debut solo album, rather than an actual 'Headpins' record. Despite his medical condition, MacLeod still managed to put his indelible mark on the project, when Chrysalis released MAGNET TO STEELE in the summer of '91. As well as playing all guitars and bass, background vocals, and producing the album, he shared engineering and programming duties with Matteo Caratazollo and Edmonton native Tim Feehan from Footloose. The actual recording was done earlier that year in a mobile unit while touring the pacific coast. With MacLeod and Feehan doing the bulk of the writing, the album captured the essence of the new wave of west coast scene, and also featured Pat Taylor on drums. But backed by the singles "Love You Til It Hurts" and "Love Don't Last Forever", the radio stations were playing what would turn out to be MacLeod's final recording project.He succmbed to his bout with cancer later that year. The record also featured cameos by Mark Slaughter, who'd gained notiriety in the metal circuit with Slaughter and The Vinnie Vincent Invasion, and Dave Allen and Scott Adair. It also featured "Cry Myself To Sleep", a Mutt Lange co-written track, as well as "Two Lips", penned by MacLeod with Mike Reno and Scott Smith of Loverboy. Videos for both "Love You Til It Hurts" and "Love Don't Last Forever" were released before Christmas that year, which by this time had also seen Steele put together a touring band to help promote the record. Received well by both critic and fan alike, her passion and energy shone through on "Two Bodies" as well as the rocking "Armed and Dangerous", which MacLeod co-wrote with Jeff Paris.Support from Chrysalis waned however early the next year and she was dropped from the label. She continued to tour into the early part of '92, but decided to pack it in shortly thereafter. Though she continued to occasionally tour for the next few years and made a guest appearance on Tim Feehan's 1996 release PRAY FOR RAIN, she wound up working in the computer programming field in Victoria, BC.One of Canadian rock's lesser-known but craziest rumours surfaced long after her leaving the music business, when it was believed Chrissy was actually Darby Mills under a pseudonym. Presumably this is in part due to the two rockers' voices and styles so closely resembling each other's, and their joint association with The Headpins. Though I've never actually seen both women in the same room together, I can assure you this is just plain ridiculous. Chrissy ventured off to do other projects, but stayed in the limelight occasionally doing the bar circuit and outdoor festivals.

    Album:

    "Magnet To Steele", the long out of print and one & only album by Canadian female rocker CHRISSY STEELE is being reissued digitally. The record was in fact the brainchild of talented Brian 'Too Loud' MacLeod (Chilliwack, Headpins), his last contribution to the Melodic Hard Rock world before sadly succumbed to cancer at the age 39. Chrissy Steele was already a veteran of the Canadian bar scene with her bands Room Service and Reform School when she was asked to join MacLeod's The Headpins in late 1989, following the departure of lead singer Darby Mills.The material featured on "Magnet To Steele" was originally slated to be a Headpins album, but due the growing unrest with their label and MacLeod's illness, it was decided the album already in the works should be released as Chrissy's solo debut rather than on actual 'Headpins' record.Despite his medical condition, MacLeod still managed to put his indelible mark on the project, as well as playing all guitars, bass, background vocals and producing the album, as sharing engineering and programming duties with cult AOR artist Tim Feehan.All songs are co-written by MacLeod / Tim Feehan ("Two Lips" together with Loverboy's Mike Reno) minus "Armed And Dangerous" by MacLeod / Jeff Paris and "Cry Myself To Sleep" penned by Mutt Lange, so you can expect top class stuff here.Chrissy Steele has a strong set of pipes to match, from a gut wrenching delivery on the hard rocker "Move Over" to her sweet sounding voice on the Heart-like power ballad "Love Don't Last Forever" (featuring Mark Slaughter on background vocals) and the elegant AOR of "Cry Myself To Sleep".Her vocal tone recalls, of course, Darby Mills, with a touch of Lee Aaron for good measure on the harder songs, while Ann Wilson's influence emerge on the more melodious moments of the record.
