The Cave Singers with Hunting
The Cave Singers
Given the rising popularity of meditative and folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy 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 (formerly of Hint Hint) and drummer Marty Lund (formerly of Cobra High). Though not an "official" member, ex-PGMGer Andrea Zollo made an appearance on the group's first album as a vocalist and washboard player. Drawing from canonical folkies like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and sounding more than a little like other early-2000s acts like Lightning Dust, the Snake the Cross the Crown, and Samamidon, the group had its first album, Invitation Songs, recorded and ready to go (thanks in large part to Black Mountain producer Colin Stewart) within months of PGMG's breakup.
Hunting is the melancholic new indie/folk project of songwriter/producer Bradley Ferguson. Bradley first turned heads with a collaborative electro pop album with Coco Love Alcorn Joystick, and kept them turned with his solo project BRADLEY, and two dark, personal electro albums (pinkpillprogram, MountainTigerWolf). Now, he’s at it again with new project Hunting.
