The Steppin Stones
Hannah Wicklund and The Steppin Stones is an American rock ‘n’ roll band
from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Wicklund formed The Steppin Stones
at the age of nine. While most were accomplishing third grade reading lists,
Wicklund was forming a rock ‘n’ roll band. Playing over 1,500 shows, sharing
stages with acts including Kansas, Jefferson Starship, Outlaws, Lyle Lovett,
Jason Isbell, and Rusted Root before legal voting age, Wicklund and The
Steppin Stones have evolved over a decade.
“18-year-old vocalist and guitarist Hannah Wicklund who delivers melodies and
styles from multiple genres with both expert precision and original
adventurism...it’s astonishing how they achieve such a mature rock sound on
their 2015 self-title album,” wrote Modern Rock Review’s Ric Albano.
Now in Nashville, Tennessee, Wicklund, guitarist, pianist, singer and songwriter
is accompanied on stage by bass and drums. Wicklund’s signature curls flying
through the air transport back to the time of the first female rock star, Janis
Joplin. Capturing the old soul of a new generation, Wicklund’s singing voice
and guitar playing have earned her comparisons to blues/soul musician Susan
Tedeschi.
With the band’s musical influences from Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Tom
Petty & the Heartbreakers and Jeff Beck, Wicklund’s classic rock look get fans
listening, but her guitar skills keep them wanting more.
“I remember the first time I saw Nirvana in 1990 in a small club in Jax Beach
with a handful of long hairs and shoe gazers. I will never forget that night, but I
was more blown away tonight by Hannah than by Kurt. She is a monster talent
and her trio is cool as shit. Tonight was one of those once in a life time moments
when you catch a superstar on the way up. Please support her so everyone else
who plays guitar can retire,” said Josh Talbot, Nashville native.
While touring and playing private events including parties for AC/DC’s Brian
Johnson, the band has managed to release four albums. The latest, a self-titled
album recorded at Echo Mountain Recording Studios in Asheville, NC in 2015.
The band is set to release a new album in October of 2017 upon the kick off of
their first European tour.
