// Marker Starling
Toronto musician Chris A. Cummings (Marker Starling, formerly Mantler) has been playing live since 1999 and has made eight records, working since 2009 with UK-based Tin Angel Records. Writing pop songs with a strong R&B influence, primarily for electric piano and vocals, his most recent releases are the acclaimed ROSY MAZE (2015, praised by Matthew Horton in the NME for its “timeless quality”), solo all-covers record I’M WILLING (2016), the self-retrospective ANCHORS AND AMPERSANDS (2017) and solo all-originals record TRUST AN AMATEUR (2018). He plays regularly in Toronto with Jay Anderson (drums), Matt McLaren (bass) and Andy Scott (guitar) and has toured the UK, Europe and Japan.
// Sing Leaf
Sing Leaf is the project of musician David Como. While Sing Leaf is the product of introversion, his musical palette is anything but. Como paints with sweeping, colourful strokes, dotting Middle Eastern flecks onto psych-rock and folk, blending organic instruments with electronics. What connects it all is his vocal delivery which lands in the vicinity of Dylan and Petty, creaking beautifully under the emotional heft of his lyrics.
