ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE BELIEVERS sophomore album Crashyertown was released in April 2005 to critical acclaim and spent 16 straight weeks in the top 20 of the Americana Music Association chart.

More acclaim followed overseas when Crashyertown hit #1 on the Euro-Americana chart - being chosen as album of the week on many BBC shows including the legendary Bob Harris Country Program.

Back in the States THE BELIEVERS hopped in their vintage Serro Scotty trailer and began a North American tour that would span 15 months. Taking them from the Gulf, East & West Coasts, Mid West, Canada & Alaska.- sharing the stage with artists as diverse as Buddy Miller to Buddy Guy . . . Jim Lauderdale to Rickie Lee Jones.

A six week tour of Europe followed. Sold out venues and a Brittish press buzz made international rock stars of the relatively unknown duo of Craig Aspen & Cynthia Frazzini.

Before THE BELIEVERS, Craig Aspen was vagabond songwriter. He didn't start a full time music career til getting clean & sober at age 35 and describes his prior life as something that make even Steve Earle blush. Enough said. Cynthia was a veteran of the Seattle rock scene and a personal chef. Bill Gates & Paul Allen were among her client list. Magic was born from the very first song they sang together, the Gram Parsons classic, "Hickory Wind". Aftr that initial meeting, the pair went on to record their first album, 2002's self released, "Row".

Reminiscent of a young Linda Rondstadt and a twangy Elvis Costello - their voices blend together like the Louvin Brothers on fire. Their music will swing, sing, lament, honky-tonk, bluegrass and rock you right in to their own little world...

"The Believers make the sound of American Gothic meets Amazing Grace."
- Steve Stav, Ballard News Tribune (Seattle)

"Crashyertown is great. Everything about it." - Buddy Miller

"The Believers new album, Crashyertown, straddles the last two cities in which they've lived. Produced by Steve Adamek in Everett, Wash., and mastered by Ray Kennedy in Nashville, Crashyertown has West Coast swagger without the amateurish arrangements that sometimes hamper alt-country bands, and it has Music City tightness without the lyrical or musical gloss." - Nashville Scene

"Craig Aspen and Cynthia Frazzini - the restless spirits behind the Believers - display a sharp eye for life on the other side of the tracks, elevating their music out of the ordinary". - No Depression


"This is just about as good as it gets in the modern country / Americana domain. The voices of Craig Aspen and Cynthia Frazzini blend perfectly, a match made in heaven, indeed". - Americana UK

"Crashyertown holds some of the richest arrangements the Alt-country genre's seen in a dawn's age".
- John D. Luerssen, All Music Guide

"Draw a line from Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris to Whiskeytown's Ryan Adams and Caitlin Cary, extrapolate just a tad, and you'll find yerself in the vintage travel trailer of The Believers' Craig Aspen and Cynthia Frazzini. Both singers are distinctive and memorable as they swap lead vocals, and when they harmonize, it's strictly goose-bump city". - Jim Musser, GoIowaCity.com

Steve Hewitt

Great variety of Americana music
From the driving power of the combination of country blended with storytelling that gives a great variety of Americana music. Buy and enjoy!

Steve Brogden

Excellent CD: solid writing played with passion, sung with rich harmonies.
This is a very solid CD. Had not heard of The Believers until I heard them at a house concert in Glendale, hosted by songwriter Gerry Spehar. This CD reflects what I heard that night: solid writing played with passion. Vocal harmonies worked very well. Passion on stage is equalled by the passion on the CD. "Railroad Spikes and Shotgun Shells" and "Crashyertown" are two favorites.

taishi

awesome
I can't believe The Believers. Crashertown is a #1 album.
My favorite is Jordan. Cynthia sings the daylights out of it.

Richard Price

Great live show! Can't go wrong catching them when you can!
Crashyertown is a good introduction to The Believers because it's close to what they sound like live, and mixes a variety of the music they do. Favorites include: 1,2,3,4,8,9&11 - and 64% is pretty strong! They picked a great opening with Railroad Spikes & Shotgun Shells. Instrumentation is mainstream Americana, and the performance is everything that is good about performing music for other people. At Shakori Hills 2006, they made a believer of me!

Taking Country music in a new exciting accessible direction
Not being an overt Country music fan, I was astonished at just how good this CD is. Craig and Cynthia's vocal (alone and in harmony) are breath-taking, the production, muscianship, and the sheer variety and depth of the material shows a couple of song-writers that will surely make a massive impression soon.
There's country, rock, bluegrass, pop, folk and yet it pulls together in a hugely impressive coherant whole.
"You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows...." Indeed, and the wind's blowing behind The Believers!

Count me among the believers. These folks are the real deal, so what are you waiting for? I'd list my favorites, but I'd have to include all of them.
