Abby Rose and David Mayfield, The Cave Twins, have each forged their own individual careers, David as a guitarist and mandolin man behind The Avett Brothers, The Black Keys, and Mumford and Sons, and Abby with northeast Ohio’s The Speedbumps.  During all this, life, as it always seems to do, took an unusual turn for them.  Separated at birth, and long after their individual careers were established, they discovered that they are indeed brother and sister, and identical twins, at that.  As fate would have it, they have just recorded this album, “Best Friends For Now,” with a new-found look at their musical careers and directions.  The harmonies herein can only be described as mesmerizing, as only the telepathic communication of siblings can create.

That harmony leads off as our duo offers a light-hearted ode to BFF’s everywhere, “Buddy I’ll Be There!”  Keeping that vibe intact, David takes the lead vocal on “I’m Dancin, every day with you!”  The duo plays a pair of lusty lovers in need of a fix and the bearskin rug on which it occurs, the playful, “Take Off Your Shoes,” while both urge us all to “Keep On Singing, when life gets tough and you’ve had enough!”

We had two favorites, too.  Abby is on vocal on the set-closing “Leave It All Behind,” perhaps a nod to their discovery of one another as siblings, albeit later in life.  And, for us, there’s nothing better than pure old-school mountain gospel, with David on mandolin on the sweet ode to that “Walk Together, all the way home, where no one stands alone!”

The Cave Twins embody a credo of endorsing science and friendship, and the good cheer and light-hearted material in “Best Friends For Now” expertly blends their tight harmonies, musicianship, and songwriting skills into a delicious foray into Americana!  Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues And Roots Alliance.

  1. Can I simply say what a relief to discover somebody that really
    understands what they’re discussing online. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people have to look at this and understand this side of your story.

    I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you certainly possess the gift.
