We are Guidestones, a Montreal band rooted in good vibes, positivity and a common love for music with something to say. Founded by twin brothers Ryan Boudreau (vocals/guitarist), Zander Boudreau (drums) along with Gabrielle La Rue (vocals/guitar) in 2015, the band also includes the recent addition of Dizzy Velvet on bass guitar in 2018.
Characterizing their sound as a fresh mix of alternative/indie rock and pop, Guidestones pay tribute to the 70’s and 80’s while examining the present-day. Released in April 2016, their debut EP “Cut & Run” provided listeners with the first cohesive collection of the band’s work. With recent singles Ground Control and So Sick, Guidestones’ tracks possess radio-friendly appeal, while providing profound opportunities for introspection. As their name implies, Guidestones are dedicated to helping fans navigate a wildly terrifying, but undeniably beautiful world.
Since 2018, Guidestones has played in support of We are Monroe, Les Shirley, The Strumbellas, The Damn Truth and Royal Tusk amongst others.
Their new album ‘’Keeps me up’’ produced by Dave Traina of "The Damn Truth" will be releasing in 2020.
