Step Sisters formed in the summer of 2014 after longtime friends Nate Smith (Drums) and Adam Swafford (Guitar, Vocals) went looking for additional members for their new project, The Volts. Matt Johanson (bass) and Clint Wilson (Vocals / Guitar), were asked to rehearse a Volt’s set. The foursome’s musical connection was immediate with this lineup and within three months the newly formed Volts were performing around Nashville. When the musical fingerprint of the band started to emerge they group toured under The Polish Falcons before finally becoming Step Sisters.

With a handful original material now written, Step Sisters employed the help of friend and collaborator Ben Weber to record their first EP. In true DIY form, Adam and Ben combined microphones, cables, computers, and tape machines to set up a studio in a still-under- construction brewery to capture what would be the basic tracks for the majority of Step Sisters’ debut EP, “THICK”. Shortly after “the warehouse sessions” Step Sisters reassembled at an unnamed theater to record “Your Picture”, “Nerve War”, and 3 more songs that would make it onto later releases. Released in February of 2015, “THICK” received high praise from local and national press outlets.

In February of 2017 Step Sisters entered the studio with Jeremy Fergeson of Battle Tapes in Nashville to record their first full length record. With the freedom that Jeremy provided as a knowledgeable engineer and co-poducer, Step Sisters recorded the majority of the 12 song album “Berseker” in just 4 days. The recording exemplifies the album’s title bringing unarmored, unhinged emotion and music that attacks with reckless abandon.“Caterpillar” and “Waste My Head” are crushingly heavy and laden with thick guitars and fast pulsing bass, while “Be Strange” and “Whistler” show a focused intensity that shows their range in songwriting ability. Mixed and mastered by Fergeson, “Berserker” was released in July of 2018.

Partnering with Fergeson again, Step Sisters recorded 14 songs between November 2018 and February 2019. Major release pending, Step Sisters will be touring 2019 on their full catalog plus new songs that were road tested during the previous year.
