Connecticutâ€™s the Stepkids are a trio of songwriters/vocalists consisting of Jeff Gitelman (guitar), Tim Walsh (drums), and Dan Edinberg (bass and keyboards). Before this fusion project, the members performed as the touring backing group for a number of high-profile R&B and rap soloists, including Alicia Keys, 50 Cent, Lauryn Hill, and Pharoahe Monch. The Stepkids signed to Stones Throw in early 2011, and then went off to play the labelâ€™s showcase at SXSW that spring. After releasing two 12â€� singles, "Legend in My Own Mind" and "Shadows on Behalf," the trio went on to make their self-titled debut, a live-sounding conglomeration of psychedelic funk and neo-soul, recorded straight to analog tape. After months of promotion, Stones Throw slated the release for September of 2011. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
