Today’s song is “Great Life” by Caveman. Caveman is made up of five proud New York natives: lead singer/songwriter Matt Iwanusa, who also adds percussion and drums to the band on record and live on stage, Guitarist Jimmy “Cobra” Carbonetti, who designs his hand-made Cobra Guitars from scratch, drummer and native Manhattanite Stefan Marolachakis, bassist Jeff Berrall, and Sam Hopkins on synths.
This month Caveman will be playing a few live shows in Europe and then will set out on a Spring tour through North America, starting in Chapel Hill on March 6th. It will include stops in Georgia, Florida, Austin’s SXSW, Toronto, and the Midwest, before ending at Los Angeles’ Echo (see dates below).
This song is off Caveman’s 10 song debut CoCo Beware. The album produced by Nick Stumpf (French Kicks) garnered critical praise from outlets like NPR, The New York Times, and The Fader and will get a wide release on March 27th via Fat Possum after the self-release on the band’s Magic Man! label last year.
