See It First: Terry McDermott Steps It Up With “Hi Steppin”

February 28, 2014 12:19 PM ET

"The Voice" Season 6 premieres this week on NBC. But let's go back in time, not long ago, to arguably the best installment of the series, Season 3, which was largely dominated by the large lungs of rockin' Scotsman Terry McDermott, who made it all the way to the finale.

Post-"Voice," Terry has kept on rockin' with his band the Bonfires, via the epic power ballads "Pictures" and "Lose This Feeling." But with his propulsive new single "Hi Steppin" (co-written with Bonfires member and current Afghan Whigs touring guitarist Dave Rosser), he's really upped the ante. "Hi Steppin" is most definitely not a ballad — it's a driving, sexy, fast 'n' furious rock assault that sounds unlike anything Terry has released before, but is still sure to please his faithful fanbase, the McHobbits.

Yahoo Music is delighted to premiere Terry McDermott & The Bonfires' "Hi Steppin" here. Step to it, and watch it now!

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
