The Cave Twins is David Mayfield & Abby Rose. Identical twins separated at birth and reunited in song. David Mayfield, a Grammy & Emmy nominated artist grew up in a family band and has toured & recorded with groups like The Avett Brothers, Black Keys, & Mumford & Sons, and made numerous appearances on television including The Late Show with David Letterman & The Grand Ole Opry. Abby grew up alone. With no one to hear her cries. She eventually turned those cries into "songs" and toured extensively with Northeast Ohio supergroup "The Speedbumps" until she found out that she had a long lost twin brother. However, It's not their sordid pasts or even the chilling tale of their separation and journey to find each other that makes them special. No, it's their unique blend of playing instruments and singing words that really sets them apart. Their music has been described as, "A nice mix of short cute little songs & shorter cuter littler songs". Make a point to go see them in a cave near you!

"At his live shows, Ricketts incorporates the visual and the avant garde." - The Anniston Star

"The underground musician’s self-recorded and self-released psychedelic pop owes much to the warped legacy of Athens’ influential Elephant 6 artistic collective; recent releases, like February [2016]’s 'Laughing Moon I'/'Laughing Moon II' single, feature subtle pop songcraft willfully obscured by washed-out atmospherics." - Athens Flagpole

"A psychedelic dance party that the whole family can enjoy." - Dylan Van Zile (Captain Magma, Suicide Doors, fuzzytree)

"A soundscape of homemade noises and synthetic sounds powered by gut wrenching lyrics and unworldly harmonies, seeming completely out of place in the humid flatlands of Mississippi yet they somehow compliment one another. It's the millennial's 'Pet Sounds.'" - Cody Rogers (The Holy Ghost Electric Show, Suicide Doors)

"He constructs shelters made of bruised synth lines only to claw at the exteriors with dissonant beats." - The Equal Ground

"And with a style that covers diverse genres, styles, and a century worth of music, it's certain that what he comes up with next will be worth listening to." - The Daily Corinthian
