Led by Toronto keyboardist/vocalist Chris A. Cummings, Marker Starling make laid-back, '70s-influenced pop. In 2012, after spending over a decade working under the name Mantler, Cummings formed the Marker Starling Trio, bringing bassist Matt McLaren and drummer Jay Anderson on board. Similar to his work as Mantler, with Marker Starling, Cummings investigates his own take on jazz-influenced soft rock à la Steely Dan and Todd Rundgren. In 2015, Marker Starling released their debut full-length album, Rosy Maze on Tin Angel. He followed it up in 2016 with I'm Willing, a collection of cover songs by the likes of Classics IV ("Stormy") and Caetano Veloso ("Lost in the Paradise"). The album is a stripped down affair with Cummings on piano, backed by a drum machine and guest vocals from Lætitia Sadier. ~ Matt Collar
