Who are we?

Hi, y'all! 

My name is Heather Cryer. My husband, Trent, and I have had a small business called Cryer Co. for about six years now and it's been a blast. We are always finding new things to do and create! 

When I was 13 years old, my family moved from Canada to Ohio. I was the most fortunate person in the world to fall into a barbershop hub. I had always loved singing, but this was something special. Dr. Ben Ayling (of the Ritz) was my choir teacher at the time and put me in my first quartet - FootNotes. We sang together all through high school and college and even won Rising Star in 2006. After Dr. A left our school, his replacement was the incomparable Gary Lewis. We always joke that Gary "raised us" - but he was truly so much more than a teacher. He was a coach, a mentor, a father figure, an outstanding musician and now, a friend. (He even sang at our wedding!)

After college, I joined forces with some incredible women to form Royal Blush - we won Rising Star in 2010. At that point, life got in the way, as it does. I've still been an avid fan and have always considered myself a barbershopper. I have attended 9 international conventions and CANNOT WAIT to get back to it. Now that my husband and our two kids are hooked - we're coming for ya!!

ANYWAY. Trent and I had been making stuff for friends that are barbershoppers for years when we finally had the idea to mesh the two worlds - our making and our love of barbershop. So, this business is a super fun, new facet of our business that we're calling - Custom Quartet Stuff. Of course, we make things for ANYONE! Choruses, fans, family, etc. So - the sky is the limit! There's no project too big or too small!

Let's chat and get some creative juices flowing and create the perfect item for your quartet, chorus or just for you! 

Lastly, we want to say THANK YOU so much for supporting our small business - I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am to have my work life and my barbershop life collide. 

Can't wait to sing a tag with all of you!
