Fences will release its debut album on September 28 through Onto Entertainment/ADA. The band is the of moniker 27 year-old Christopher Mansfield, a self proclaimed fuck up, who uses it to perform and record under. The Seattle-based artist’s first full length was produced by Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara fame and shares a kindred down-trodden spirit to the music of Elliott Smith and Townes Van Zandt.

Mansfield’s musical life started in Boston where he spent his late teens studying music at the prestigious Berkelee School of Music. His girlfriend of the time was studying the plays of August Wilson and suggested that Mansfield name his band after the famed playwright’s most beloved play, Fences.

A few years later he moved to Seattle recording songs that would come to together as the self released „Ultimate Puke“ EP. The collection was raw yet achingly beautiful, and soon he began to attract a fan base throughout the Pacific Northwest, opening shows for St. Vincent and Mark Kozelek and playing festivals like The Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, The Capitol Hill Block Party and Sasquatch. Tomorrow (Thursday, June 3), Fences is playing SAM (Seattle Art Museum) to celebrate the opening of the Kurt Cobain/Andy Warhol exhibit.

„Ultimate Puke“ ended up in the hands of a young producer who passed it onto Sara Quin.
