Boomtown was produced by Davitt Sigerson. It peaked at #39 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold in the U.S. by the RIAA. The follow-up single, "Swallowed by the Cracks" reached #14 on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart, while "Ain't So Easy" peaked at #51 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #17 on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart.
David & David disbanded shortly after Boomtown, and Baerwald and Ricketts continued to work with other musicians. They both collaborated with Sheryl Crow on her debut LP, Tuesday Night Music Club.
