Album Notes
Chris Staig:

Has won praises for his solo recordings, and for his work with other performers.

Used to play guitar for a bagpipe funk band called Taxi Chain. Way back in the mid nineties when one could play 3 nights a week in bars and not starve. Even if there was a bagpiper in your band.

Made two solo CDs he's proud of. Deeper We'll Dream (2000) caused Kurt Swinghammer to call Staig "surprise local discovery of the year" and The Toronto Sun to call him "a song writing Charles Atlas". Songwriter Jonathan Seet best summed up Staig's second CD, Death of Romance, as "damn f**** straight, man". Both discs received commercial, campus and CBC radio play.

Played a lot of guitar with Greg Hobbs and is happy with the guitar playing on the CDs "Drake Motel" (2001) and "Threats and Promises" (2004). Hobbs says "Staig has an uncanny ability to colour a song perfectly without showing off." Staig has also recorded and played live with Jason Collett of Broken Social Scene. His guitar playing is featured on the track "Blue Skies" from Collett's CD "Motor Motel Love Songs"

Is probably the only songwriter who will have his work covered and recorded by both power pop cynic Dan Bryk ("Honest Love") and Canadian novelty song act The Arrogant Worms ("Buy a Bottle of Booze")

His third CD is titled "Davenport". A recent review notes that "Davenport features a winning combination of power pop, roots rock and singer/songwriter pop. Things start off in fine fashion with Staig pleading for a "Rock'n'Roll Holiday", as it's "time to blow up my television/can't make shopping my new religion." "Davenport" placed 78th on absolutepowerpopblogspot's Top 100 of 2006.

2007 was marked by many live shows throughout Ontario and highlighted by a series of festival appearances, including Toronto City Roots, NXNE, International Pop Overthrow, and Peterborough's Dogfest. 2007 also saw recording of Staig's fourth independent CD titled "Mary". Produced by Joe Dunphy (Skydiggers, By Divine Right) the CD is scheduled for release in November of 2008.
