Hannah Wicklund and The Steppin Stones is an American rock ‘n’roll band from Hilton HeadIsland, 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 inNashville, 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’sclassic 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.

THOUGHTS are an Indie Rock/Alt-Pop band that combines the roots of influential classic bands such as The Beatles and Pink Floyd with the modern indie smooth flows of artist such as Tame Impala, Kings of Leon, Young The Giant with the writing skills of John Mayer.
Benny and Angel spent the last 6 years honing their song-writing and performing craft as founding members of their previous band Jumbo Shrimp Inc., one of the top, most successful young artists to come out of South Florida. As performers, they have graced the stages of festivals and venues such as Lollapalooza in Chicago, House of Blues (Orlando), Sunfest (West Palm Beach), FL Music Festival Main Stage (Orlando) and Terra Fermata (Stuart). Benny’s song-writing and vocals, complimented by Angel’s grooves, have resulted in air-play in stations based out of Florida, New York, Australia and Canada.
After numerous conversations with world renowned labels and large nationally recognized music festival promoters, Benny and Angel made the difficult decision to start the next chapter of their careers…thus the band THOUGHTS (logo is spelled backwards intentionally). THOUGHTS is primed and bound to take their rightful place in the music world. The remaining of 2017 looks to finish strong for THOUGHTS with 13 shows scheduled across cities such as Nashville, TN, Stuart, FL, Orlando, West Palm Beach and St. Petersburgh, and a Northeast US tour in the works. There will be plenty of opportunities for those of you that are new to THOUGHTS to join in on their forward movement.
