Seattle-based The Cave Singers make some of the most beautiful folk music you’re likely to come across right now. Forming in 2007, the band’s lineup comprises frontman Pete Quirk, guitarist Derek Fudesco, drummer Marty Lund, and bassist Morgan Henderson. The band tours extensively, even supporting Charleston’s beloved Band of Horses back in 2007 during a U.K. tour. Having already released three full-length albums — Invitation Songs (2007), Welcome Joy (2009), and No Witch (2011) — the band unleashed its last LP Naomi last year. Catchy melodies and tenor-led storytelling are still common threads, but Naomi also presents The Cave Singers with a more pronounced and polished sound. Though the band’s prettily imagined, lush albums are all worth hearing, their live show is where they truly shine. “We don’t get to make it down there very often,” says Quirk. “We’ve been down there before, but we want to make new fans and show people down there what we have as far as our live show.” —Lindsay Anne Bower
