The '90s alt-rock revivalists Lost Boy ? started off as the bedroom recording project of Long Island native Davey Jones in the late 2000s.
Working fast and with cheap equipment, Jones spent his formative musical years cranking out songs, self-releasing singles, cassettes, and CDs to more and more acclaim. His 2011 release USA USA gathered some good notices in the press and he began touring more, using a rotating collection of musicians. In 2012, Jones joined the band Baked as guitarist, a move that slowed down Lost Boy ?'s output a little. In 2014, the Wasted EP was released by the Exploding in Sound label. By this time Jones had made Lost Boy ? a real band, adding Ryan Foster on guitar, RJ Gordon on bass, and Matt Gaffney on drums. They recorded an album together, planning to release it in the summer of 2014, but issues with their label led them to find a new home for it. PaperCup snapped them up and released Canned in early 2015. ~ Tim Sendra, Rovi
