Q&A with Cincinnati’s Lung with Kate Wakefield on electric cello and vocals and Daisy Caplan on drums.
How was playing Lobsterfest?
Kate: It was awesome. We had a lot of fun.
Daisy: A blast is a good word.
Have you played here in Athens before?
Daisy: Yeah, many times.
Kate: We love playing in Athens.
Daisy: We’ve played here, we’ve played Casa…
Kate: I played the Batcave a long time ago when that was a thing.
Daisy: Not me though, Kate played solo.
How did you come up with the band and the music you play?
Kate: I don’t play guitar, and I don’t play bass. I kind of play cello, so I went with the instrument I had.
Daisy: We just kind of went for it and we were like, “This is all right.” Not a lot of thinking.
Kate: We got together and jammed, and it was fun.
What are some of your inspirations for your music?
Kate: Everybody. We got a lot of inspiration from bands that we meet on the road. There’s a band I love called Tart from Detroit. They are really cool. I love Tori Amos as far as bigger artists who are famous or whatever. I’ve loved Tori Amos for my whole life.
Daisy: DANA’s pretty cool. We were excited to play with DANA again.
How long have you been on tour?
Kate: We’re at the beginning of a 2-week, 3-week tour.
Daisy: We’re playing Oklahoma.
Kate: We’re playing Oklahoma Noise Fest. It’s gonna be cool. You should road trip to Oklahoma.
Daisy: We’re going to play here and Oklahoma and everywhere in between the two, basically.
