I met Chris at a friend’s birthday party - and then again and again and again when his band with that friend, Rabbits to Riches, played shows at our house again and again and again. He’s extremely smart, has a quick and goofy wit, and has ended up becoming a great friend to me - such a good friend that we make sure to see each other once a week when we can, and play together often as the moon-themed, country-folk comedy duo, Gravey Train. He and his knowledge of music and recording has been instrumental (ha) to the foundation of T&TT.

Chris’ music has the sensitivity of Lou Barlow, the intelligence of Julie Doiron, and the complexity of Richard Swift. He’s the first person who comes to mind when I think of Philadelphia’s best emerging artists, and I’m super excited to feature him on T&TT’s first release, a split between Chris as little stray and Spencer Moody, the frontman of The Murder City Devils.
