With the keyboard reaffirming itself in indie rock circles thanks to The Fiery Furnaces magical albums - could it open the door for other keyboard based artists to click with the Hipster crowd?

One man who deserves the attention of listeners is Toronto native Chris A. Cummings who calls himself Mantler. Signed to the German label Tomlab, Cummings music is kin to late 70's piano based artists such as Steely Dan's Donald Fagen and The Doobie Brothers Michael McDonald. The songs are built on piano and organ with little in the way of guitar, save for the bass.
