Armed with one of his various guitars, Forest crafts a unique combination of fingerstyle, tapping and percussive playing that is all his own. Drawing from various influences like Michael Hedges, Scale The Summit, Led Zeppelin, Chon, and Covet, each song is a musical journey that further shows what two hands and a guitar can accomplish. He underscores these sonic adventures with a stage presence that exudes every ounce of passion he has for his craft. Be sure to check his debut acoustic instrumental album, "Let the Clouds Pass".
Forest has entertained across the United States and Australia. His song, "Midnight Picnic Near the Ocean" was also featured on the Candyrat Records youtube channel.
His initial efforts of solo guitar music have led to a new sound with Electric Guitar & Drums.

Love this idea Hank and crew! Always enjoy seeing pedalboards. Quite a bit of this board is wired with Rattlesnake, there’s just a few spots I wasn’t able to fit them in.
About a million years ago, I used to run a blog called EffectsBay. On that blog, the most popular feature I would run was Pedal Line Friday. This is where readers of the site would send pics of their pedalboard and a short (sometimes long) write-up of routing and thoughts about specific pedals and the reasoning why they liked it, etc. Readers. loved this. It was a great way to learn about new applications or techniques regarding pedals. It also brought a little inspiration and knowledge about pedals you were not familiar with. It also brought a great sense of community - people like sharing and absorbing cool things, right? It was a super popular feature, and I loved putting them together.
All you have to do is send a pic of your pedalboard (or pedal line - it doesn't have to be on a board) along with a short (or long) write-up of the board. We want a list of pedals (manufacturer/model), routing would be great, and, most importantly, why you use those particular pedals. Also, this is a great way to promote your band or musical project - include that information as well!
You can send the pic and the write-up to firstname.lastname@example.org.
