The Believers - a Country/Rock/Soul Sound

Saturday March 26th at 09.00 pm in Rose's West End Bar, Lismore
THE BELIEVERS have a serious love for old school country music. They can’t help it if they were raised on punk rock & metal.

Founding members Craig Aspen & Cyd Frazzini formed THE BELIEVERS ten years ago in Seattle amid the Alt. Country- No Depression boom of that time and have been recording and performing ever since. Three albums and a decade later they’ve stayed true to their Country/ Rock /Soul sound that has earned them praise from contemporaries like Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale and the BBC Radio’s Bob Harris who declared them simply, “Brilliant.”

Of their latest release ‘Lucky You’ , Britain’s Rock n Reel Magazine wrote THE BELIEVERS are “What Johnny Cash and The Tennessee Three might’ve sounded like if they’d jammed with The White Stripes.” That sounds about right to Cyd Frazzini who smiles and says, “I hope we can always come across that dangerous."
