Cardboard Boxer is an indie/garage rock band hailing from San Diego, California. Formed in 2017 by Shea Villetet (vocals and guitar) and Thomas Achenbach (guitar), the band initially bonded over their shared love for Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix.

In 2020, Cameron Jackson (bass) completed the lineup, solidifying their indie/garage rock sound. Influenced by acts like Fidlar, Wavves, Modest Mouse, and Dead Kennedys, the band has been refining their unique sound ever since.
Cardboard Boxer has played notable gigs, including Peachy Fest alongside TV Girl, The Frights, and No Vacation, and headlining the Voodoo Room in San Diego.
