Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Rob Calder (trumpet); Pietro Sammarco (trombone); Joshua Wells (drums); Amber Webber (background vocals).
  • Photographer: Jenny Jimenez.
  • With a voice pitched somewhere between Bob Dylan and the Violent Femmes' Gordon Gano, Pete Quirk leads Seattle trio the Cave Singers through an evocative batch of rural-sounding folk-rock tunes on the band's debut, INVITATION SONGS. While the band's acoustic campfire-songs approach bespeaks a fascination with the Old World, the rawness and urgency of their delivery underlines a backstory that includes previous participation in several indie-rock ensembles (Murder City Devils, Pretty Girls Make Graves). Call it punk folk with a pop twist.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Singer Pete Quirk combines the vigor of Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham and the word-slurring flair of a young Michael Stipe, then adds his own neurotic charisma..."

Uncut (p.84) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's convincing....The shuffly mountain music is bolstered by some unobtrusive electronics..."

Magnet (p.92) - "The members of the Cave Singers seem intent on scraping away their previous bands' noise and bluster to find a music that's no less nervy and riveting."

Q (Magazine) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir impressive first album balances a spare, acoustic, folk-based sound with angst-ridden indie edge."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A harmonica sounds positively modern here, wafting alongside haunted background moans on sombre highlight 'Royal Lawns'..."
