DerbyTown is a Langley-based alternative-country band performing a range of covers and original music. The band formed in 2018 around the idea of featuring the pedal steel guitar, two lead vocalists and plenty of harmony singing. The band is heavily influenced by alt-country stalwarts such as Blue Rodeo, Son Volt and Ray LaMontagne but also delves into some of the roots of country.
The band’s original music is varied but features themes of soul-searching, love and getting lost on dusty trails. The band is planning to put together an album of music for release in 2019. The band members have years of playing and recording experience in dozens of rock, country and roots bands and have come together for their love of well written and melodic songs
Band members are:
Tom Hammel – Lead and harmony vocals, pedal steel and acoustic guitar
Sean Schonfeld – Lead and harmony vocals, electric and acoustic guitars
Bob McIntosh – Harmony vocals, bass
