A gentleman by the name of J.R. Stanley (Old Queen City pop punk band To The Point & Toronto band Downsview) has moved home and has started a new band called Queen Cities (named after calling the Queen Cities of Regina and Toronto home).
Originally from the 'Queen City' Regina Saskatchewan J.R. Stanley moved to Canada's other 'Queen City' Toronto in the mid 2000s to further build upon an already impressive catalogue of music and art.
Recently returning home, he has already left a significant mark on the local community and music scene by designing the revised sign for Regina's historic Wonderland Arcade, designing logos for local bands/artists, and showcasing his works in local coffee shops all while continuing to create and share the music he loves.

The Queen Cities debut EP, "Electric Carousel" (a tribute to the days of vinyl) features Dave 'Brownsound' Baksh of SUM 41 and was produced by Jason Pierce - current drummer for Our Lady Peace.
Next level bright lights, big city pop. A full band creation of J.R. Stanley achieving elements of acoustic, punk & synth heavy alt-rock.
Calling two majestically nicknamed cities home (Regina & Toronto) - Queen Cities is a next level acoustic pop, punk, alt-rock creation of J.R. Stanley (Performing/touring since his teen years) inspired by culture, pixels, art and design.
