“My father abandoned my family, leaving my three sisters, myself and my mum, who at the time had cancer. We lost our home, and for a long time struggled to put food on the table. Since, I’ve struggled with the sense of not belonging, and my new single Miss Me was a catharsis for expressing some of that pain and anger,” Steel said.
