Makarova was born in Nortilsk, where she performed as accompanist for various musicians. She supported Yegor Lietov in his concert in Nortilsk. In 1997 she moved to St Petersburg for her education, where she met Michail Bashakov in 1999. Bashakov noticed her, and she joined his band providing backing vocals. At that time he performed at an underground club, Зоопарк (The Zoo), where the careers of many well-known musicians began. That was where Makarova met Bielkina.
Bielkina is originally from St Petersburg. She’s a professional flautist, and had performed with some well-known folk bands such as Old Horned Sheep and Reel Road before meeting Makarova. She is still an active participant in the Азия+ (Asia Plus) artists’ project.
In 2000 Ступени debuted at Зоопарк as part of the Могучая Кучка art festival. In 2001 they did not perform much, devoting themselves to creating their first album.
