The Decoys: (L-R) Matt Stanley (Vocals/Guitar), Sean Poissant (Drums), Kris Ruston (Bass)



What originally formed as a band to support singer/songwriter Matt Stanley’s debut solo release in 2008, has developed into one of Western Canada’s favorite independent rock ‘n’ roll bands – The Decoys. Comprised of members Stanley on guitar/vocals, Sean Poissant on drums, Kris Ruston on guitar/keys and Steve Manhattan on Bass, the Kamloops, BC based band deliver raw and honest tunes influenced by the spirit of Neil Young, Tom Petty, Pearl Jam and Led Zeppelin.
