Chris Staples is from Seattle. He records all night long while everyone sleeps. He goes to bed just before the sun comes up.
He turned a small one car garage into a studio where he records and mixes his records. Barsuk records released his last two records American Soft (2014) and Golden Age (2016). Staples tours regularly in the US and Europe/UK. He's been a carpenter for 24 years; building houses, cabinets, furniture, and trade show displays. He mostly just plays music now.
