The Crayons - What Color Are You? - 2002

The Crayons first appeared as a boston based group around 1998. There was some recording and playing but the project was shortlived. Singer/ songwriter Keith Caruana took flight from Boston and after a short stay on the West Coast returned to his New Jersey hometown. While playing solo acoustic shows as "The Crayons",  Keith recorded an acoustic e.p. at a friends garage. The 6-song "236 astor" was released in 2001 on Keith's own Shimmerwax label.
Capitalizing on favorable reviews and successful live shows Keith played throughout the Northeast finishing the year with a month long tour of the Southeast.
With a desire to expand the sound Keith turned to his friends, indie pop masters The Churchills.
The recording was done at Frankensound studio in North Brunswick,NJ. The Churchills both produced and lent thier playing skills to the sessions. The combination proved to be a perfect fit. The resulting 10 track disc is a collection of pop hooks, harmonies, and lots of guitars. The new release will come out under the New York based indie label Cropduster Records. This label features some other great artists such as Bob Perry, of Winter Hours fame,The Health and Happiness Show and Patti Rothberg to name a few. -CD Baby
