Steele is from Australia, but the influences here are definitely American. The sunny soft-rock of Jack Johnson and acoustic blues of John Mayer are easily apparent. “Be This Way” is engaging adult rock with chiming riffs; it’s an easily appealing way to kick off a record. The sprightly summer hooks of “How You Make Me Feel” reel in the ears with its breezy charm. “I Just…” showcases Steele’s soulful voice; however, it’s the Red Hot Chili Peppers-ish balladry of “Ordinary Girl” that is the true X-Factor here.
