OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR LEAD SINGLE

"BOMB THROUGH THE BREEZE" 

PREMIERED WITH GUITARPLAYER.COM YESTERDAY (10/25)

HANNAH WICKLUND & THE STEPPIN STONES--fronted by 20-year-old powerhouse guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Hannah Wicklund--today (10/26)announced their new full-length, self-titled album. Produced by Sadler Vaden, guitarist for Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, the album will be released on January 26, 2018.

 

The official music video for the project's lead single, "Bomb Through The Breeze,"premiered yesterday (10/25) on GuitarPlayer.com where the magazine's Editor-In-Chief Michael Molenda noted last month, "...Wicklund is not simply a shredder or a tonal colorist -though she certainly has chops and can go for some buzzy and less-than-organic sounds. What's impressive to me is how she uses her custom Tom Anderson guitar and Orange half-stack to drive the emotional context of her songs with a combination of spiky rhythms, slow lines, fast runs, and cagey riffs. It all adds up to a thrilling ride."(September 13, 2017)

"Sadler and I wrote this song as a response to feeling backed into a corner by someone who doesn't get the hint," says WICKLUND of "Bomb Through The Breeze." "This is the type of song to hopefully inspire some self-confidence when it comes to standing up for yourself and others. Unfortunately, when someone's volume is on loud for so long, the only way to get their attention is to do something even louder."

 

The 10-track self-released album was recorded in Nashville, TN and is a fresh take on WICKLUND's musical influences drawn from '60s, '70s and '80s guitar-driven rock. "Once we started writing some songs, I saw that she had a real, raw talent," says Producer Vaden. "I was inspired to work with her by her love of classic rock music and blues. I wanted to honor that in making this album, but also add a little modern edge to it."

HANNAH WICKLUND & THE STEPPIN STONES is an American rock 'n' roll band originally from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and based out of Nashville which WICKLUND formed when she was nine.Onstage, WICKLUND's signature curls fly through the air, transporting 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.
