Album Notes
The Cruzeros new CD Scandalosa was produced by Joe Hardy (ZZ Top, Steve Earle, The Georgia Satellites, Chris Knight). The 12 song album was recorded at the Hum Depot, Nashville and Rutland House Studio, Kelowna, BC. The disc includes 10 new original songs as well as covers of Donny Ray Ford's Cowboy Boots and the classic 60's hit Wooly Bully. Joe brought in some of his buddies to help out on the project...session legends Greg Morrow - drums, Dan Dugmore - pedal steel and a special guest appearance by Dan Baird of the Georgia Satellites.
"With tips of the hat to everything from Steve Earle, the Beat Farmers and Buddy Holly, Scandalosa impresses in the writing department and for it's lasting sonic imprint" Peter North, The Edmonton Journal
"While much of the album has a hard edge, there's enough variety including some soft touches in the Barry Mathers songs Helplessly, and the album's lead single, November 11th, an ode to a war scarred uncle.The new single release from the album is a trucker's tale in the power driven Load Me Up; all of which help make Scandalosa the most complete album in the Cruzeros trilogy of disc's to date...and that would be saying something considering that their El Niño album, released in 2000, yielded some seven charted singles" Larry Delaney, Country Music News
"Scandalosa has been getting rave reviews from anyone who heard the pre release version. Produced by the amazing Joe Hardy, as well as the Cruzeros, Scandalosa is undoubtedly one of the best albums produced anywhere in the country this year. It's a must have." Charlie Hodge, The Okanagan Musician

Scandalosa contains refreshing mix of tasty licks and intelligent lyrics.
I was real pleased to find this "country music" album filled with intelligent lyrics and a diversity of sophisticated music.

Cruising with the Cruzeros
Kelowna’s best kept country secret, the Cruzeros have released their outstanding second CD, Scandalosa. As you can tell from the first track, they are a country band with a strong Mexican flavour.
With erstwhile vocals, a touch of wit and impeccable playing, they explore a variety of themes like rumours, small towns, pollution, love war and trucking all in an easily digestible package full of great playing and a fun loving attitude.
Scandalosa is almost worth the price of the CD in itself as it perfectly sums up a typical small town rumour mill. Cowboy Boots is an upbeat foot stomper summing up the whole cowboy phenomenon. And Load Em Up is an acoustic slide guitar powered ode to truckers. They even have a country fried cover of Wooly Bully which is worth hearing.


Quick delivery, most impressed

I love this CD. It's different flavor lets you kick back and enjoy the taste of real music. I have been wanting more of their music for years and this was well worth the wait. Well Done my Friends.
