Although initially enamored by classic rock and heavy metal in his teenage years, Forest traded cranked up half stacks and over-driven guitars for solo acoustic guitar in 2015. Upon discovering his new passion for the nuances that a steel string acoustic guitar can create, he quickly found the home for his compositions. His unorthodox style of playing, which consists of using the body for percussion and strings for bass and melody all at once, has led him to maintaining over 150 concerts a year and performing nationally. Following suit of his heroes Michael Hedges, Joni Mitchll and Jon Gomm, He is now a nomadic musician, captivating audiences and sharing joy with everyone he encounters.

“Each song is a musical journey that further shows what two hands and an acoustic guitar can accomplish. He underscores these sonic adventures with a stage presence that exudes every ounce of passion he has for his craft.” - Stephan Adcock, Roseville Tribune
