Hailing from Pittsburgh PA, STEPup
was formed in late 99 when Guitarist Tony Fonzi and Bassist Ian Strang
were colaborating on their similar musical interests. When they needed a
drummer they called up "Skathentics" Drummer Tim Hinkle, who's unique
heavy/jazz style blended well with Fonzi's heavy/melodic style. In the mean
time they auditioned other vocalists and things went by in a blur, until
Steve Nitsch called Fonzi up looking for a project to start(Nitsch and Fonzi
worked on projects together in the past), and he went in and tried out.
His aggressive, melodic, and rap-like style fit the role perfectly. Later,
in fall of 2000 Ian Strang and STEPup parted ways. Ian was replaced
by former One Day Sober bassist, Ed Humberson. Each of the members
may be known from previous (in some cases current) projects, such as
T.S.S., Intonation, Skathentics and Rampant, combining there talents
and mixtures of Hardcore, Jazz, Metal, Blues, Rap, Tribal, Ska and Industrial
to come out with a very original and unique sound like none other.
