Known regionally as one of Western New York's hidden jewels, Standard of Living have been winning over fans by town since 2004 with their heartfelt piano pop and soaring vocal harmonies The band grew up together in Amherst, NY (just outside of Buffalo) and released its second EP, Paint The Night, in July 2009.

Standard of Living released a debut full-length in 2004, but it wasn't until 2006's Patience EP that the began to hit its stride. In fact, opening for Teddy Geiger, they met producer Billy Mann (Pink, Backstreet Boys, Sting), who helped them refine their songwriting skills.

Standard of Living applied the knowledge they gained from their time working with Mann in crafting Paint the Night. After 6 months of writing, the band settled on the final 7 songs for the self-produced EP.

Paint the Night is a harmony-driven mix of nostalgia and liberation--for example, the tender reminiscence of "Wilson" gives way to "Without You," an enthusiastic eff-you anthem. "I feel like the collection of songs on Paint the Night really gives our fans a range of who we are--there are slow songs, rock-out songs, and everything in between. There's something for everyone to take away from it," says singer/pianist Josh Rabenold.

Standard of Living has previously toured with singer-songwriters Teddy Geiger and Ben Jelen and has played with a diverse list of artists including Hanson, Paramore, The Rocket Summer, and Kate Voegele. The band puts an immense amount of pride and effort into their live performances, pulling off three-part harmonies live that most bands can only dream of. Rabenold explains, "While other bands run their show off of an iPod, we owe it to our fans to try and to recreate the studio experience every single night."

The world is the canvas and Standard of Living's paintbrushes are working overtime. Their attention to detail and refined songwriting on Paint the Night puts them in position to turn heads nationwide and makes them a band to keep an eye on as their star burns brighter and brighter.
