Stepdad was formed in a sweltering Chicago apartment in the summer of 2009 when two songwriters turned roommates, ultramark and Ryan McCarthy, began writing pop songs together. The duo relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they finished their first EP called Ordinaire. Due to an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the 8 songs contained on this EP, the boys added long time friend and bassist Alex Fives, and more recently drummer Jeremy Malvin, and began performing their pop jams in front of many a crowd. Oh yeah and during all of this, the boys wrote some theme songs for stuff (Axe Cop, Top Rope), shot some music videos, got arrested, & built a rather rabid fanbase.
They are currently recording their debut album entitled Wildlife Pop with producer Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Mumford and Sons, Les Savy Fav).
