Look for The Stepkids to bring their futuristic electro soul and soaring harmonies to North American stages this spring. The Connecticut trio will kickoff their tour with Mayer Hawthorne & The County next Monday, April 16 in New York City at Webster Hall.
The Stepkids’ groove is a fusion of punk and jazz, West African and 1960s folk, neo and classic soul, classic funk and 20th century classical. Their debut album was produced, engineered and recorded on a reel-to-reel by the band and they have received praise from Spin, Details, NPR, Pitchfork, Los Angles Times, Village Voice, MOJO, KCRW, CMJ, and more.
They will be at GRAND CENTRAL May 8th, 2012. Get Tickets HERE Along with Mayer Hawthorne and The County.
