Biography

This San Francisco-based group acts as singer/songwriter Andy Cabic’s ever-evolving musical home base. Cabic grew up in northern Virginia and spent a few years in Greensboro, North Carolina, playing guitar, writing music and recording as a member of The Raymond Brake, which is where he first met future Vetiver members Trippe and Dunn. After moving to San Francisco, Cabic helped form the rock band Tussle, and at the same time began recruiting other local musicians, friends and confederates, including Colm O’Ciosoig (My Bloody Valentine), Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star), Devendra Banhart, and Joanna Newsom, among others, to record the 2004 debut Vetiver for the Dicristina Stair Builders label. Paste magazine describes the group’s newly released fourth full-length album as “even-keeled cuts of restrained, majestic psych-folk. Cabic sings with silver-throated vocals and in some ways his songs hang loose.
