ANDY CABIC of Vetiver

In his bright-eyed, gentle manner, Andy has been a recent champion of Michael Hurley’s work, sharing his music with the uninitiated. He’s included covers of Michael’s songs in his own work and has invited Michael to tour and record with his band Vetiver. Over years of changing configurations and members, Andy has been the constant life force of Vetiver, making five records starting in 2004 and touring extensively with a cast of different musicians including his longtime lady love Alissa Anderson and Devendra Banhart, as well as a collection of other fine musicians.

A deep enjoyer of slightly dusty songs and fading musical history, Andy has found ways of engaging with several musicians of previous generations. He and record label cofounder Devendra released Michael’s album Ancestral Swamp on Gnomonsong in 2007. Andy continues to cross paths with Michael, playing at the same festivals and enjoying one another’s work. As we sat at their kitchen table in San Francisco, Andy and Alissa told us some choice stories from being on the road with Michael a few years back.
