Tony and Michael Beliveau, two brothers from Boston, were already making music together their whole lives before crisscrossing the country in tandem and finally putting down roots in Los Angeles.
Tony moved West on his own in the fall of 2005, while in the process rediscovering the singer and writer parts of himself.
He was writing lyrics, keyboard and power chord-driven tracks that inspired Michael to follow him to the coast with nothing but a duffel bag and a bass.
By the time the Sierra Swan crew made it home to LA at the end of 2006, the seed of what was to become the Crash Kings had been planted.
