The Cave Singers
The Cave Singers
Given the rising popularity of meditative, folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy, rootsy folk trio was probably the least surprising move Derek Fudesco could have made. The former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves picked up an acoustic guitar and formed the Cave Singers following PGMG’s demise in January 2007, teaming up with vocalist Pete Quirk and drummer Marty Lund.
The Cave Singers released two albums on both Matador and Jagjaguwar Records. Following these releases, The Cave Singers began work on their fifth album. Rather than working with a record company, they opted to coordinate the project themselves and financed the recording through a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign raised 116 percent of the group’s goal, and the album, Banshee, was released in February 2016.

"Cheveyo’s lyrics wrestle with the complexity of his feelings. Just like any letter to a loved one, he tries to tell a comprehensive story: One of love and gratitude, as well as one that captures the present, with all its activities and goings-on. In combining both elements seamlessly, “A Letter” presents itself as a beautiful, humbled timepiece."
-Atwood Magazine

The song goes down with a smoothness and glints with golden-brown electric-guitar sighs. It's an auspicious omen for future releases and shows." -The Stranger

Their latest cassette single, “Woundlicker,” pairs woozy and atmospheric guitar tones with frontman Chris Cheveyo’s whispery, almost sultry vocals. The music oozes from the speakers, filling the room with layers of iridescent melodies and intoxicating harmonies. - Seattle Weekly

"rock juggernaut" - The Stranger

"The four songs collected here synthesize dream pop and psychedelic influences into a fluid sound that's immediate yet enigmatic" -Under The Radar
