Streaming Audio

The Seattle band provides a bright, energetic sound that mixes folky, toe-tapping guitar with mellow drums and gritty-velvet vocals.

The Cave Singers formed in 2007 with Pete Quirk on vocals, Derek Fudesco on guitar and Marty Lund on drums. Later on, bassist Morgan Henderson joined the band, rounding out its mountainous, beard-bobbing sound. With so much folk-infused acoustic pop, it's hard to believe that the band members have deep roots in turbulent, post-punk bands like Pretty Girls Make Graves, Hint Hint and Cobra High.

Quirk's voice alone could have its own flavor of Ben and Jerry's, swirling with bits of Dylan, Kurt Vile and Gordon Gano.

The band just released its fourth record, "Naomi," in March of this year, a kind, uplifting album that takes a look at life with a focus on the bigger picture. Parliaments and Pabst are not included.
