Matt Stanley and The Decoys rock on

————————————————-

Kamloops rockers Matt Stanley and The Decoys are building on the momentum of their EP Life and Times, breaking out of the city with a Lower Mainland gig and support from Jenn Ashton’s Rave On Studio. Stanley was featured last week in The Province Playlist, a newspaper feature the points readers to emerging B.C. artists through website links and free downloads. The band-including Jarrett Boyetchko, Brandon Donovan and Rob Simpson- is lined up to play David Suzuki’s EarthRun at Vancouver’s Jericho Beach April 25. “It’s a cool concert,” Stanley said. On March 30 Stanley plays an acoustic show at Pogue Mahone’s. The band had a helping hand from producer Henry Small in creating their debut recording last year. Stanley is a humble guy: “As far as promoting yourself, I’m not the greatest at it,” he admitted. The raw goods are there, though – good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll.
