Hannah Wicklund Short Bio
Fronted by 21 year old triple threat vocalist, songwriter and guitar player, Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones boasts a resume that can be hard to match for most multi-decade musicians. With over 2,500 shows under their belt, three completed albums and festival appearances at Peach Music Festival, Firefly Music Festival and Kaaboo Del Mar, Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones are on their way to becoming Rock & Roll’s next marquee act.
Formed in 2006, by a then eight year old Wicklund, the band has come along way from playing Janis Joplin and Neil Young covers. Between then and now, Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones have been billed alongside legacy acts such as Jefferson Starship, Kansas and The Marshall Tucker Band. Fast forward to now, one year after the 2018 release of their 10 track self titled album, Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones has amassed over 2.5mm streams on their most recent project and have been billed alongside current and legendary chart topping mainstays such as X Ambassadors, Cage the Elephant, Tom Petty, Alanis Morissette and Muse.
Although Hannah’s roaring guitar riffs on her custom Tom Anderson guitar and orange amp set the tone for The Steppin Stones performances, it’s her vocal range and well-beyond-her-years songwriting that have led to the success of their latest release, helping to propel them to a regular mainstay festival act. Hannah’s musical vision stays close to her classic rock roots, but in no way is a classic rock tribute. Their music is a refreshing focus on raw and organic emotions in a time of digitally driven recordings and performances.
2019 is poised to be a momentous year for the blossoming power trio on the road and in the studio. Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones are supporting the Stone Temple Pilots, joining Peter Frampton and Joe Bonamassa on a Mediterranean cruise and bringing the heat at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, GA to kick off their summer headline tour across the United States. Throughout the year, Hannah will be working on intimate, authentic and stripped down tracks about embracing and learning from the darker sides of life in addition to a new full band record. Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones will leave their fans feeling inspired and connected in a way they haven’t felt in a long time.
