Hannah Wicklund and the Steppin Stones rock the Boarding Room at the Big Mill in Ft. Payne. GREAT WHITE presents the second in the Discovery Series of concerts. Discover new artists - Discover Ft. Payne! Ryan Keef's new band, Keef and Company will open. ABOUT 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 the coming weeks as well as kick off their first European tour. Back
