In the spring of 2015 Oklahoma City natives, Zach Shomaker, Kolby Yarbrough, and Joshua Warren began collaborating on the project that would become Cavern Company. Following college graduation, the twenty-somethings found an aligned passion for the importance of music and the role it plays in the human experience. After choosing to pursue music as more than just a pastime, a sound was quickly fostered that is not only heard but felt, this being the mission of the band.
Iconic in its origins, Cavern Company's sound is derived from classics such as Chic, while still maintaining the modern accessibility of artists such as Phoenix, Death Cab for Cutie, and The Killers. The band views the lyrical content to be equally as essential as the instrumentation for all of their music. Writing songs with lyrics that are filled with as much hope as there is candor is a chief desire for Cavern Company. Vocalist Zach Shomaker said, "I have had multiple instances in my life where a song has had profound significance during some of my roughest moments because an artist chose to be honest. And in the same way, we want to write that song for someone else."
While the young artists have spent an extensive amount of time out of the limelight in their beginnings to write and record, they always come alive in front of an audience. They view crafting and performing a live show to be a vital piece of their musicality, artistry and interaction with their fans. The band has played various local Oklahoma venues as well as festivals and is consistently working to grow their fan base outside of the local level. Just after finishing the construction of their recording studio the Summer of 2015, they recorded and produced their single, Dancing in the Dark which was independently released in March 2016. The band is currently performing both locally and regionally to publicize their latest record Tension which released on July 8, 2017.
