The Believers on Tour This Summer and Fall

Select Shows with Donna the Buffalo

The BElievers 2013_8845

THE BELIEVERS’ lead singer/songwriters Craig Aspen and Cynthia Frazzini met in Seattle and began a serious love affair with old school Country, Soul and Roots music. Their musical journey began playing a unique brand of music that has since earned them praise from contemporaries Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale and BBC Radio’s Bob Harris, who declared them as simply, “Brilliant.”

The Believers have released three albums and are presently touring in support of their Motown-esque new single, “Gimme Some Love.”

When asked to describe their music, Craig and Cynthia don’t miss a beat saying,  “We’re a rock band with a country problem.”  Britain’s Rock n Reel Magazine recently wrote that THE BELIEVERS are “What Johnny Cash and The Tennessee Three might’ve sounded like if they’d jammed with The White Stripes.”

The new single ‘Gimme Some Love’ is their first new recording in five years and was produced by Donna The Buffalo’s Jeb Puryear. The Believers’ Craig Aspen also directed Donna The Buffalo’s most recent video “I Love My Tribe” which debuted on CMT to much praise.

Donna the Buffalo Travel West With Their New Album
Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday
Image

More energized and focused than ever before in their near 25-year career, roots-music troubadours Donna the Buffalo released their first studio album in five years, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday, Tuesday, June 18, 2013 via Sugar Hill Records. The album debuted at #20 on the Americana Music Charts, and this past week rose to #10! Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday—the group’s 10th studio album—proves the band as a consistent steward of Americana music, their signature sound—traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country—an eclectic and extraordinary melting pot of such.

Donna the Buffalo has a hefty tour lined up for the Summer season which includes a few weeks on the West Coast. They start off at the Red Ants Pants Festival in Montana on July 26th and travel over throughout the Northwest before heading down for shows at the Mint in LA and Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown. Saturday, August 8th marks their return to The Great American Music Hall followed by shows in Santa Cruz and Chico and then on to Utah for shows in Monroe and Park City. They pop over to Colorado for a show in Denver and then the tour ends at the Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival in Wisconsin. The band will be performing the songs from the new album, mixed in with older favorites, live across the country this summer.

Have you Herd? Donna the Buffalo will be traveling the country this fall and winter! Sounding better than ever, they have been in the studio this spring and summer working on a 10th album and will be performing new songs, along with the old favorites, up and down the East coast before heading out West for the first time in a few years. Donna the Buffalo is Jeb Puryear on guitar and vocals; Tara Nevins on fiddle, guitar, accordion, scrubboard and vocals; keyboardist Dave McCracken; bassist Kyle Spark; and drummer Mark Raudabaugh.

LISTEN to an interview on Eternal Jamnation with Tara Nevins about the upcoming album, their fall tour, the Grassroots Festivals & more!

Donna the Buffalo’s feel-good, groove-oriented, danceable and often socially conscious music all began over twenty years ago with roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric Americana mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country. The band is known for touring the country and remaining fiercely independent as one of the industry’s most diverse roots-music bands and has “earned a reputation as one of the most respected, eclectic and hardest-working acts today,” praises Encore.

They embark on an almost non-stop tour through the end of 2012 starting at Rhythm and Roots in Rhode Island followed by shows in Pennsylvania, The Dark Star Jubilee in Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Vermont this September before heading back down to North Carolina for their fall Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival in early October. Then they trek back up to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland before returning to Live Oak, Florida for Magnolia Fest in late October.

They’ll be bringing The Herd out West starting with shows in Alabama, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before a host of shows throughout California the first week of November. They complete the West Coast tour in Eugene, Portland, and Seattle and and then make their way back East.

Donna The Buffalo cap off the year celebrating in Florida with shows in Ft. Lauderdale and a three night New Year’s Eve run at Skipper’s in Tampa!  Stay tuned to facebook.com/donnathebuffalo and twitter.com/donnathebuffalo for updates, photos, and videos throughout the tour!
