The Stepkids The Stepkids on LP

The Stepkids are a trio who came together in 2009 after a decade of working in bands with some of the industry's biggest names, creating a unique brand of modern psychedelic soul. The Bridgeport, CT-based band - Jeff Gitelman (guitar, vocals), Dan Edinberg (bass, keys, vocals) and Tim Walsh (drums, vocals) - gleefully blend classic jazz, R&B, funk, 70s pop/rock and countless other genres and styles.

"A lot of what excites us about this band is this band itself," says Edinberg. "It's not either of us; it's about creating an entity where the entity itself is what's important." As a result, every song on the Stepkids 2011 self-titled debut was written with equal input from each member. "All three of us write and all three of us sing," adds Gitelman, who resigned from touring as Alicia Keys' guitarist to concentrate full-time on recording Stepkids. Walsh continues, "There's an equal split in the creative process. Any lyric, any melody, any idea could have been done by any of us."

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. The band produce, engineer and record themselves on a reel-to-reel. There's no singular icon, no singular sound, and no singular way of making it happen for the Stepkids. It's psychedelia for the 21st century, where the focus is on the whole.
