The Cave Singers' guitarist isn't quite sure he'd recognize success if he saw it.

When asked why he thinks he and his bandmates have garnered attention, Derek Fudesco quietly laughs.

"We're really good friends and love what we're doing," he says in an interview from his Seattle home. "That can be infectious in a way."

The rootsy rockers perform at Ivywild School on Sunday as part of a tour promoting their second full-length, folk-rock album, "Naomi," released a year ago.

"Now expanded to a four-piece, the Cave Singers are now less a clutch of friends picking banjos on some imaginary Appalachian front porch and more a proper band, with the presence and group interplay to match," writes critic AJ Ramirez on the website

Fudesco was in the band Pretty Girls Make Graves and lead singer Pete Quirk was in Hint Hint before the two old roommates explored writing music together in 2007. That first song was a defining moment.

"We made a song in a way we never had before," Fudesco says. "That was it. Like, you know what? We should write music together. This is something special. It was different than what our output was at the moment."
