The Cave Singers

The Cave Singers

At the dawn of the new millennium, meditative, folky indie acts drew juice from canonical folkies such as Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie and took off like a house on fire, among them, The Cave Singers.

Mark your calendar. Denise Mongan presents The Cave Singers baying at The Moon – I am talking about the Fly Me to the Moon Saloon – on Thursday, March 28. Doors are 9 p.m.; show time is 9:30 p.m. The opening act is The Pollens.

The Cave Singers was formed by Derek Fudesco, former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves, which disbanded in 2007.

Picking up an acoustic guitar, Fudesco teamed up with vocalist Pete Quirk (formerly of the punk band Hint Hint) and drummer Marty Lund (formerly of High Cobra. ) Former Blood Brothers bassist, Morgan Henderson, joined the fun in 2011.

The Cave Singers first signed to Matador Records, home label of indie giants like Yo La Tengo and Belle and Sebastian, riding the crest of the Seattle alternative wave that steadily rolled across the music scene over the past decade. Though looser and more reckless, the group’s first three albums garnered comparisons to artists such as the Fleet Foxes, their sound fitting like a glove in the folk-rock genre, even as The Cave Singers changed partners.

The group’s new album, Naomi, released in early 2013, is their fourth in five years and the second for label Jagjaguwar, its sound described by critics as “a rich tone with a pronounced bottom-end… bright guitars and upbeat melodies.” The lyrics suggest the band’s preoccupation remains the same: the difficulties of living and loving in the modern world. Also the same: rock solid musicianship.
