About Band

Downcast Theory, based in Central New Jersey, first came together in June of 2007. What began as an informal acoustic project between long-time friends Matt Simon (Lead Vocals) and Jake Raynor (Lead Guitar) has turned into a rapidly growing hard-rock collaboration. With the addition of Matt Raunick (Drums) and Ryan Sauerman (Bass), Downcast Theory continues to represent New Jersey’s hard-rock scene with high energy and even higher hopes. Whether playing small clubs, or opening for bands such as Drowning Pool, Cold, and Nonpoint at New Jersey's Starland Ballroom, Downcast Theory gives the ultimate rock experience: aggressive guitar, a tight rhythm section, and soaring vocals. Front-man Matt Simon credits the band’s rapidly growing success to their dynamic chemistry and their ability to work cohesively as a band. Downcast Theory’s style is heavily influenced by hard-rock powerhouses Sevendust, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, and Seether. Every song is painstakingly crafted to create the best sound to the greatest effect. No vocal is written without careful consideration. No instrument is left unnoticed. Their music was made to be heard. And it will be. Their time has come. The Downward Spiral Has Begun.
