Small Town Artillery

Small Town Artillery is the final permutation of a project over a decade old. Founded by brothers Tom (Vocals, Guitar) and Derek (Drums, Vocals) van Deursen, and supported by Carson Webber (Bass) and a revolving door of countless other musicians, STA began in the small Kootenay town of Meadow Creek, BC.
Their sound was born from experimentation almost free of influence and has grown into mature, high energy Rock music.
Since the time they were young teens, Tom and Derek have been throwing their own shows, writing their own music, and recording it all in the hopes to make a crowd move and a soul smile. They opened for Canadian heavyweights 54-40 before either of them were legal drinking age, and in 2010 they released their first full-length LP: "CRASHDROPS".
In 2014, the band entered and won Molson Canadian's "Big Bang" competition, receiving $10,000 in prize money.

Front man Tom van Deursen can also be found playing lead guitar for Vancouver band The Boom Booms. For the past six years he has written, recorded, toured and documented his musical journeys with this group, finding success internationally.
Derek also plays in another Vancouver group, Trespassers Will, which is made up of 3 remaining members of the critically acclaimed funk-soul demolition group: Jackie Treehorn.
Carson Webber, a recent addition to STA, plays in Year of the Wolf.
The upcoming album combines their individually honed talents with years of musical connection into a whole that hopes to be truly greater than the sum of its parts.
