Louisville knows: There is something alive in the music of CABIN. Each song wells up to give the listener an immediate burst of emotion, sometimes vast yet always unique. It’s this sense of adventure and escapism that drives the landscape of their music. Drawing upon influences like Radiohead and The Shins, CABIN’s songs evolve and surprise while often unearthing strange sounds. Applying their deep-rooted impressions from classical music, the band uses imagination and composition to tell a story, making every song an attempt at invention and discovery.
After earning a degree as a visual artist, founding member Noah Hewett-Ball began writing music as a soundtrack to accompany a series of paintings. Attempting to visually convey the colors, textures, and rhythm of music, Noah eventually found music taking reign of his creative endeavors. In 2005, he teamed up with three high school friends to record CABIN’s first full-length album, Govern The Good Life. The addition of experimental violinist and pianist, Sarah Beth Welder, lead to the creation of CABIN’s latest album, Among The Rectangles And Changeable Parts, released in late 2010. The record takes its listener on a sonic journey weaving back and forth between the lines of progressive rock and pop. CABIN has earned fans world wide, performing in seven European countries to date and sharing the stage with acclaimed musicians such as OKGO, Spoon, and members of My Morning Jacket. Paired with their impressive touring resume, CABIN garners more attention with the release of each new album. Both releases earned Album of the Year from WFPK Radio Louisville and also landed both the #1 and #38 spots on the Top 100 countdown for the year. SPIN Magazine noted the song “I Was Here” as ‘must hear’ song in 2009 and singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens labeled CABIN as “a band you need to check out”.
