Recording: Chris Cummings

Artist: Chris Cummings with Ryan Driver

Song: Double Suicide [Sandro Perri cover]

Recorded at Holy Oak Café ("Toronto Does Toronto 3"), January 5, 2014.

Chris Cummings - Double Suicide

Full review to follow. Once again the Holy Oak invited some of the best Toronto songwriters of right now to pay tribute to their local musical heroes, with their choices ranging from past to present and from the familiar to the obscure. As far as I can tell, there's a lot more water in this well, so hopefully the series won't end here.

Sandro Perri provided one of the highlights of the previous T.O. does T.O. night, and here Chris Cummings (who records as Marker Starling) got some help on backing vox from Ryan Driver for a stripped-down take on this number from recent classic Impossible Spaces. There's a new Marker Starling album on the way, so keep an eye out once spring rolls around.
