C. Sterling – a new indie folk act whose sound, made unique by computer synth accompaniment and heart-felt introspective lyrics, welcomes comparisons to Elliott Smith, Chad Vangaalen, Devendra Banhart, Timber Timbre and Bon Iver. Vancouver, BC – based singer/songwriter C. Sterling began writing and creating music in the mid 2000s, and was the driving member behind alt-rock band The Silent Authors, and folk duo Ohmbe. The 2007 release of The Silent Authors full-length album “Under City Lights” and Ohmbe’s 2009 self titled EP brought acclaim from Canadian indie artists such as Dan Mangan, DRMHLLR, and Ohbijou. With the end of earlier projects and a wealth of new ideas, C. Sterling carefully started to craft his first solo album in 2010, exploring synth and atmospheric sounds and incorporating them into catchy acoustic based songs. The newly released No Matter EP features The Silent Author’s co-writer Brad Woods on bass, Iain Rose on drums, Casey Mecija of Ohbijou performing a vocal duet, and is mixed by acclaimed Toronto producer Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Sebastien Grainger, The Wooden Sky). All albums to date have been self-released and are the definition of DIY.
