“I’m imagining a golden string that is connecting everything but especially beings where love has been. I’ve imagined it again and again so often, it isn’t even imagining, it is making it happen.”

Devon Sproule is a Canadian/American musician living in rural Virginia, raised on eco-villages near Kingston, Ontario and Louisa, Virginia. The 33-year-old, in addition to being a musician, is a high school drop-out, a mother, a birder, and a student of Deaf Culture and sign language.

After recording and performing for many years as Mantler, Toronto’s Chris A. Cummings renamed himself Marker Starling in 2012. A solo performer for much of his career, Cummings became known for his signature Melancholy Party Jams, played on a Wurltizer electric piano, with drum machine accompaniment.

“Impossibly plush meld of early solo Paul McCartney melodies and Steely Dan jazz”

“Classy, but it’s not style over substance - there’s a real gut-punch one-two here that’ll leave you reeling”
