My friend Chris aka Marker Starling, is an amazing musician who's keyboard playing reminds me of Garth Hudson (maybe also because of his bushy beard!) - He's playing in Toronto next week, definitely worth checking out.   I posted his latest video below, End of Summer, which is a great comical video he shot in LA.   Love to know what you guys think of it!

In the Fall of 2022, Marker Starling supported indie rock legends Stereolab at Toronto’s HISTORY and Montreal’s MTELUS. Earlier this year, the Marker Starling band celebrated the release of their new album Diamond Violence by playing their debut as a 6-piece band. It was a miraculous night, and the Thursday, July 6 show at The Garrison promises to be the summer edition of the same miracle.

Beginning as the solo project of Toronto’s Chris A. Cummings, who performed for many years as Mantler, Marker Starling became a trio with the addition of Jay Anderson on drums and Matt McLaren on bass. Andrew Scott joined on guitar in 2018, and since 2021, the band has included acclaimed Toronto singer-songwriter Dorothea Paas on guitar and vocals. The newest member of the band is classically-trained percussionist Ed Squires, who also performs in U.S. Girls and Badge Époque Ensemble.

Known for his signature style of “melancholy party jams,” Cummings has also performed extensively in Europe, the UK, and Japan. Since 2010 he has worked with UK-based Tin Angel Records, and since 2016 with Tokyo-based 7e.p. Records. His newest video, End of Summer, was shot in Los Angeles by up-and-coming production team Goldwing.TV

Marker Starling is pleased to be joined by The Crime Family, whose unique brew of styles is fresh and arresting.
