Step Wife is a recording project led by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan de Hoop. As the bedroom project moves forward, new influences shape the writing and recording process. The live sound brings new energy to the music as four other musicians come into the picture and add to the performance. Step Wife’s live arrangements keep things fresh for listeners new and old.

Taking notes from early and contemporary psychedelic music and, at times, entire pages from the endless catalog that is jazz, Step Wife blends genres in a playful way that is ever-evolving in a respective manner. The music offers grin-inducing bass lines, subtle synthesizers, and guitar parts that feel right at home with the rest of the ensemble.
