BRAND NEW 2022! If you’re looking for the quintessential Orange County ska-punk sound, look no further than THE STEP DAUGHTERS! A catch mix of 90’s Hellcat style punky street ska, equal parts British 2-Tone and American punk. Formed in early 2019 by scene veterans Eric Vedder (bass) and Jeremy Sandoval (guitar) alongside frontwoman Erin Smith-Norrick, Timothy Calacsan (keys), Kevin Erney (drums), and Colin Darby (sax). Don’t let their short time on the scene fool you, this group is comprised of all experienced musicians and have been linked to a handful of other great local acts at one time or another! Their track “F’in with my Head” held a spot in the “Ska Parade Top 5” for over 8 consecutive weeks and has been featured on Ricky Menace’s “Taxi TV.” Other fan favorites like their cover of “Fat Randy” and the original “Over It” have been featured on compilations like “Puro Desmadre” (Voodoo Glowskulls Tribute) and on SMELVIS RECORDS “SKALLOWEEN 2020”! Soon the band caught the ear of SKA PUNK DAILY and were featured on the groundbreaking California ska-punk collection “TOO HECTIC” in the summer of 2021. Tragically soon after the release of “TOO HECTIC” co-founder ERIC VEDDER passed away and the band spent the next few months picking up the pieces and rebuilding. JUMP UP is proud to be a part of this chapter in the STEP DAUGHTERS story releasing their debut 9 track album album as a tribute to ERIC VEDDER, and we are happy to say the band is active one again!
