The Cave Singers
When selftaught
spiritual artist Augustin Lesage (18761954)
spoke of his painting process he
said , “I never have any idea as to what I want to portray. I never have an overview of the entire
work at any point of the execution. My guides tell me: ‘Do not try to understand what you’re
doing.’ I surrender to their impulse.” This sentiment of surrendering is shared by The Cave
Singers. Their writing is unfettered; their songs possess a quality of deliverance. Each track of
their four album catalog compels movement, physical and emotional. It can manifest as the
tapping of one’s foot, nod of the head or even a silent lifting of the heart. The Cave Singers '
melodic harmonies pull the body to the present, demanding our attention beyond all of the other
noises of the world.
Banshee brings T he Cave Singers back to their original 3 piece lineup and also their approach
to songwriting: an exchange of Derek sending Pete a riff and Pete responding with vocal ideas.
From there , the songs come together. The album was recorded live in July of 2015 over 6 days
with producer Randall Dunn. The record is warmly anchored in the members' creative familiarity
with one another. Yet there is a new thirst to Banshee, one that can be attributed to t he
combination of the band taking a year off to work on other projectsPete
Quirk's solo album and
the Kodiak Deathbeds debut record and
their return to songwriting from distanced
Lead vocalist Peter Quirk possesses a spiritual healing quality that rides within the tonal waves
of his lyrics. Driving guitars, foottapping
percussion, and Quirk's powerful vocals make an
intricate quilt that blankets the audience in comfort, aggressively communicating a gentle
reminder: we are soft bodies trying to survive with one another. Fade Away highlights this ,
“With the sun on our back we will never get cold , with the light in our eyes it’s alright to get old ,
whatever your story might say , however , it’s told , let it go , let it let go , let it fade away.”
The Cave Singers remind us that it takes a village. They remain approachable while retaining
the complexity of writing skills possessed by folks who have dedicated their lives to music. Their
appreciation of varied sounds, the writing process, and performing in every type of venue,
house and festival possible allows them to connect with those they speak to. Their passion for
their craft translates from their recordings and resonates through their performances.
The Cave Singers are the people’s band.
Slow Parade
Slow Parade was formed out of the need for a new extension. The goals were explicitly implied through means of analog conversion : follow sonic bliss until it exceeds the order of 38 db RMS above unity gain, translate the oft mud caked melodies back to silver vibrations of which they were born , catch the tail of the echo loop that does knows no decay.
