The Cave Singers
Released August 18 2009
Seattle’s The Cave Singers perform dramatic, forlorn and occasionally triumphant music in a wonderfully autumnal haze. Their second album, Welcome Joy, is a gorgeous, rich folky stew hitting musical touchstones from Led Zeppelin III (think Bron Yr Aur Stomp) to Iron and Wine, CCR, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Will Oldham, with a healthy dollop of the more mournful Stevie Nicks songs from Fleetwood Mac’s mid-70’s period.
Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer, Ladyhawk), Welcome Joy shows the trio of Peter Quirk, Derek Fudesco and Marty Lund picking up where they left off after Invitation Songs, the band’s beloved debut. 2009’s Welcome Joy features the additional vocal talents of Amber Webber (Black Mountain, Lightning Dust) and Ashley Webber (Lightning Dust).
