The Organic Pick of the Week

Death Cab for Cutie

Each week, a different artist is spotlighted as "The Organic Pick of the Week." Hourly segments of "The Organic Pick" feature the artist's music along with bio information and sound bites.

Death Cab for Cutie came together in the bayside college town of Bellingham, Washington.  The band was originally a side project for singer/guitarist Ben Gibbard, an engineering student at Western Washington University who split his time between school and music. 


Currently a trio, consisting of Gibbard, Nick Harmer and Jason McGerr, Death Cab for Cutie has gone from indie band obscurity to international fame, and has earned several Grammy nominations along the way.
