The Cave Singers
Given the rising popularity of meditative, folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy, rootsy folk trio was probably the least surprising move Derek Fudesco could have made. The former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves picked up an acoustic guitar and formed the Cave Singers following PGMG’s demise in January 2007, teaming up with vocalist Pete Quirk and drummer Marty Lund.
The Cave Singers released two albums on both Matador and Jagjaguwar Records. Following these releases, The Cave Singers began work on their fifth album. Rather than working with a record company, they opted to coordinate the project themselves and financed the recording through a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign raised 116 percent of the group’s goal, and the album, Banshee, was released in February 2016.
Gun Street Ghost
The Bright Silence
Colorado born singer Kevin Johnston founded Bright Silence (which MTV's John Norris calls "Rousing, anthemic and remarkably intimate") in Brooklyn in 2010. Emerging from NYC's open-mic-singer/songwriter scene, Johnston has performed original songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live, worked with Kjartan Sveinsson (Sigur Ros) singing a 2-month-long piece of music at NYC's New Museum and performed to a sold-out Red Rocks crowd with Ian Cooke Band paying tribute to Prince. Between frequent European tours, long stays in Germany and the release of their sophomore album Time Is New (w/ guitarist Kirk Schoenherr & bassist Tim Lappin of Chet Faker aka Nick Murphy) and drummer Zach Jones (Sting, Secret Someones, A Great Big World). The new Denver chapter of Bright Silence are excited to be digging back into the Colorado music scene in support of Time Is New which Bandwagon Magazine calls “wide-eyed, optimistic, frequently lifting into pure moments of rapture”.
