About Steve Wilkins

Steve Wilkins has never been in one place too long. Born in Kentucky as the son of a Methodist pastor, Wilkins has lived in the coastal regions of southern New Jersey, the flat landscape of Illinois, the mountainous regions of the Poconos, & the rich farmland of Lancaster county, before finally settling in the outskirts of the metro city of Harrisburg, PA.

Similarly, Wilkins’ musical landscape is a hybrid of prog rock, emo, electronic & 80’s pop. Raised on bands like Rush, Yes, & ELP, the bar for songwriting & technical prowess was set high very early on. Being the youngest of 4 siblings, he was taught to appreciate all kinds of music, from 70’s arena rock like Styx, to the virtuoso guitar performances of Joe Pass & Django Reinhardt, to the unique metal of Voivod. A major turning point came in his early twenties when Wilkins & his brother saw the band Mineral play a small coffeehouse in Lititz, PA. A perfect introduction to emo, Wilkins was hooked and began seeking out & emulating similar bands.

Wilkins’ debut E.P. No Rain Remain was released in June of 2016, with praise from critics & friends alike. Ric Albano of Modern Rock Review says, “Built on an acoustic-based foundation, the songs on Steve Wilkins debut EP are filled with movement and mood taking on a genre classification of their own.” Since the E.P.’s release, it has been featured on Good Day PA’s Studio Sessions, avalivemusic.com’s Behind The Music, & was a featured debut review on modernrockreview.com. He is currently working on new material and playing shows in the Harrisburg area.
