The Portland folk-pop duo the Old Believers "yearn for the past with a soulful folk sound
that is nostalgic, but inspired. Singer [Nelson] Kempf's expressive, bluesy croon is a throw-
back to ages long ago; paired with the group's alt-country stylings, the music he produces
with bandmate Keeley Boyle is both vivid and compelling. While more progressive than
bluegrass and Americana, the sound on the group's second release, the eight-song EP Eight
Golden Greats, definitely draws [from the] elements [of] roots music."—Conor McKay, NPR
