HANGING OUT at her then-boyfriend’s band rehearsal at age 16 proved to be pivotal for Del Hunter. “They needed an extra harmony and asked me to sing a part,” the Kelowna, BC-based broker recalls. “After that, I was in the band!”
That chance opportunity led to a passion for music that continues to this day in the form of Steppin’ Out, the duo formed by Hunter and her husband, Keith, almost 30 years ago. The couple’s schedule can have them onstage performing weekly.
“Keith plays guitar and flute on stage, but he records drum, synth, horns and bass tracks in the studio, which becomes our ‘back tracks’ during live performances,” Hunter says. “Keith does all the hard work; I just put the harmony in!”
