About Ten Spiders
Portland Oregon based Ten Spiders expects to release their third record in fall 2019. Until then, Maria and Steve Cahill are ramping up their live shows excited to share this new material and regularly playing as a quartet with Amos Hart on keys and Harrison Games on drums. Still heavily influenced by the diverse Philly live music scene of their roots, some songs are folky, but not folk; rocky, but not rock; funky, but not funk; jazzy, but not jazz; and bluegrassy, but not bluegrass. Set to upbeat grooves, thoughtful and witty lyrics reflect the angst and joy of life in the ”modern world”. While long time fans may be searching for the banjo, Maria has replaced many of her banjo parts with the voicings on her grandfather’s hollow-body electric guitar (and yeah it’s tuned like a banjo).
