Upon hearing the four songs from Stand Up and Say No’s "The Hour Grows Darker", one is reminded of New York City post-punk bands: driving guitars and catchy melodies abound, and there is just enough swing to win over those brave enough to dance.
However, unlike those purveyors of NYC fashion and sex appeal who made their name in part by living the fast life, front man and creative mastermind Andre Nault is a one-man songwriting machine and family man who is fighting the widely held belief that men like him must give up a career in music for the sake of adopting a more traditional lifestyle.
Nault, frustrated by the initial lack of interest in his music, followed his last gig in Quebec City in 2011 by selling all his instruments – except for one guitar. Nault used this guitar to write a collection of jingles that soon caught the ear of a Los Angeles-based licensing company. After his songs were placed in a series of popular car commercials, Nault was inspired to form Stand Up and Say No.
The project soon became Nault’s personal protest against the conventions of 9-5 workdays and nights spent sitting on the couch in front of the TV. He recalls the moment clearly: “I remember one evening watching television and thinking to myself ‘Is this how you want to spend the rest of your life? Is this how you want your family to remember you?’” The answer was a resounding “NO!”
