In addition to holding down the “menu advisor” and “broken crap fixer” positions in the CTB, Seth runs a recording studio: www.littlegoldenbookstudio.com, where he recorded both of the CTB albums. Otherwise, he can usually be found tinkering with the mountain of broken musical gear (aka “trash”) in his basement. [Editor's note: Seth is also in The Golden Bears, you should check them out!]
Sara has been playing drums since she was 11 years old and has no intention of stopping. In addition to CTB, she has also been acting beat meister with Hungry Ghost since 2008 and was lead drummer for Unwoundfrom 1992-2002. Sara also holds a masters degree in library and information science but spends most of her time playing drums and hanging with her 3 year old son, Niko.
Besides holding down the low end with the CTB, Mike has been playing keyboards and guitar with Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks for the last 10+years. He loves touring the world in a rock band, but is happiest at home in Portland, alphabetizing his record collection.
Dave Depper will playing bass and keyboards for us on the US tour. Dave has been climbing in and out of vans, eating backstage hummus plates, and sleeping pretty well on planes for the past ten years with the likes of Fruit Bats, Jolie Holland, Mirah, the Minus 5, Laura Gibson, Loch Lomond, and many others. He’s also a freelance soundtrack composer, if that’s the kind of thing you’re into. And one time he recorded Paul McCartney’s “Ram” all by himself for some reason. When he gets a little bit of quiet time, Dave enjoys jogging and jumping into rivers. Read all about what his cats are up to at twitter.com/davedepper.
