After recording and performing for many years under the name of Mantler, Toronto’s Chris A. Cummings changed his band name to Marker Starling in 2012. A solo performer for much of his career, Cummings was frequently seen playing Melancholy Party Jams on a Wurlitzer electric piano, with drum machine accompaniment.
After a longtime association with Germany’s Tomlab label, who released the second, third and fourth Mantler records (SADISFACTION, LANDAU and MONODY) Cummings began working with Tin Angel in 2010, when they co-released MONODY and released fifth album ROSY MAZE to great acclaim in 2015. In 2016 ROSY MAZE was released in Japan by 7e.p. Records, who also brought Cummings to Japan for the first time.

Cummings has collaborated with the German band Von Spar, contributing vocals and lyrics to four songs on their album STREET LIFE. His song “Deep Background” was recorded by Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier and will appear on her upcoming solo record FIND ME FINDING YOU.

Now with the release of TRUST AN AMATEUR his eighth full length as Marker Starling, Toronto troubadour Chris A Cummings captures in crystalline pop a time in his life full of birth, death, life, loss, endings and renewal. Reeling from the death of a close friends and collaborator, two years after the birth of his first child. He asks questions about morality, searching for their answers on tracks led by gorgeous drifts of airy Wurlitzer keyboard calm. TRUST AN AMATEUR is both minimalist in sound, but profound in message: an expert songwriter pushing his poetry to a brave new existential brink.
