SMALL TOWN ARTILLERY: THE STORY
What started as two brothers making terrible pre-teen punk rock in the mountain hamlet of Meadow Creek BC has grown into a full fledged rock & roll act with the world on their minds - in more ways than one. Small Town Artillery is made up of Tom van Deursen (Guitar, Vocals), Derek van Deursen (Drums, Vocals), Carson Webber (Bass), Alex Maher (Saxophone) & Phil Austrom (Trumpet). They've headlined festivals (Edge Of The World, Kaslo Jazz Festival, Brewloops, and more), signed a record deal (JumpAttack! Records) and received critical acclaim for their impressive cataloge of DIY material - over 12 music videos, 2 full length albums and counting. Currently perched on the edge of a 2.5 month Canadian tour which takes them far outside their home territory and into the lives of so many, this band's recent successes are a result of their unique brand of "rock with a horn section", their incendiary live show, and relentless self-promotion.
The band currently calls Vancouver BC home, but will always be the first to tell you they come from the Kootenays.
