Remy Steal (formerly, REMINGTON) is a singer/song writer and producer based in Chicago IL. Remington Messinger is a Colorado native who began his music career as a student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Although his BFA curriculum was to follow a study of sound art and engineering, he took the advantages of the sound department to produce hip hop and R&B music for young emerging artists in Chicago. With free lance work producing and writing for EDM and R&B artists, and remixing for artists such as Blu Marten, Kid Sid, MNDR, Paloma Faith, and Blond Redhead; Messinger took on the name REMINGTON to produce music for himself. He debuted his first EDM EP, Summon Birds, in the late winter of 2013 and although content with his EDM productions, He navigated away from the genre to focus on Writing for himself and to explore different approaches in production.
With a style heavily influenced by hip hop, IDM and R&B, Remington changed his name to Remy Steal, (a name given to him from one of his former teachers) and began singing on his own productions. With writing reflective of his experience as someone hungry to be loved, his past boyfriends, drugs, and the pursuit of the American dream, Remy Steal records and manipulates his auto tuned vocals over heavy synth and bass oriented tracks to create a dark, melancholic world for his listeners. He references Aaliyah, Portishead, Bjork and Lil Kim as his all time favorite artists that he says, have shaped his music.
Remy Steal is currently working on his first full length album, and continues to produce music as a freelance artist.
