Chris Forsyth

Chris Forsyth is known for hypnotic compositions and solo performances on 6- and 12-string guitars that assimilate minimalism and psychedelia with art rock, folk, and blues influences. He has performed all over Europe and the US, having toured with such like-minded artists as Trad Gras och Stenar, Steve Gunn, Ignatz, and Es. He is a founding member (with Jaime Fennelly and Fritz Welch) of gothic junk folk expressionists Peeesseye, and a member of the elusive experimental group Phantom Limb & Bison.

Other notable collaborators have included Tetuzi Akiyama, Nate Wooley, Koen Holtkamp, Meg Baird, and choreographers Miguel Gutierrez and RoseAnne Spradlin. Forsyth'ss second solo LP, Dreams, was released to acclaim in September 2009 on Evolving Ear in a 100 edition and quickly sold out (and later reissued by Family Vineyard). His third solo LP, titled Paranoid Cat, features contributions from members of Peeesseye, Mountains, D. Charles Speer, and others.
