Hailing from the cave-ridden region of western Kentucky, The Lost River Cavemen play rock and roll on bluegrass instruments. Always the innovators, The Lost River Cavemen dig up roots music and shower it with a modern seasoning that will leave your palate tingling.
Artfully taking parts of Folk Rock, Americana, and Country (among others), The Cavemen spin their music into a truly original aural presentation that is easily accessible to everyone from college kids to grandmas.
Their live show creates an atmosphere filled with good vibes and the kind of buzz that makes you want to drink and dance all night. They put on a high-energy show that is not only a pleasure to listen to, but a great pleasure to watch.
The LRC are strong supporters of \"playing music for the sake of playing music,\" and they have been living this mantra for the past four years. Their songs tell stories of real-life experiences and hardships. While many of their songs may have a serious tone, they definitely aren\'t afraid of throwing a little bit of tongue-in-cheek humor into their lyrics. Their eclectic mix of music and lyrical styles will keep you guessing until the end of the performance.
With haunting vocals and lyrics supported by a warm acoustic guitar, Michael McMillian holds up the front end with a passion unparalleled by any lead singer. Joshua Riddle (percussion) and Kelly Wilson (stand-up bass) intertwine rhythm and catchy beats that are the essential backbone of this musical opus. The icing on the cake is the bone-chilling precision of Kerry Pruitt\'s fiddle playing that laces itself in and out of every song.
\"Taste of Life\" may be The Lost River Cavemen\'s first full-length album, but these guys sound like veterans of the trade. Find out what you\'re missing; give \"Taste of Life\" a listen.
