Small Town Artillery: The Story
Small Town Artillery are a Rock & Roll band with a horn section, originally from Kaslo, BC. They write songs about things they care about and utilize riffs, brass and emotion in their music. Founding members and brothers, Tom and Derek van Deursen, have been playing together since they were 11 and 9. STA are signed to JumpAttack! Records out of Vancouver, and are currently self-managed.
The past two summers have seen them pull together dozens of guerrilla shows around British Columbia, touring with a full PA and light show to yard, orchards, parks and forest groves. Nothing stops the riff wagon.
They are currently working on a batch of new music that will be released when it is ready. STA’s success & growth are due to their high-energy live show, powerful horn section, relentless work ethic and strong desire to see a childhood dream realized, 20 years in the making.
