We are Forth

Bio

He’s driving off into the desert. No more fighting, no more failing. He’s been fantasizing about this moment for as long as he can remember, and now he’s finally done it. His hands are loose on the wheel and his foot pushes the pedal flat on the floor. He’s free, heading west into a future that suddenly feels hopeful. Then a song comes on the radio….he turns it up….he thinks he’s heard it before, but he hasn’t. It’s just that kind of song – instantly familiar like an old friend, and the band knows just what he’s feeling…

Formed in 2010, Forth is a band with a story to tell. Four musicians, Brian Forth (singer & strummer), Tim Norrgrann (axe-man, harmoniser), Eric Von Hertzen (drums & percussion) and Mikael Söderbäck (bass virtuoso, man-with-the-longest-hair-in-the-band) came together to make music about their lives. They turn their epic failures, broken relationships, hopes and stupid mistakes into awesome rock songs. Their music looks for forgiveness and maybe even a little bit of redemption. Four friends from different countries, with different lives but with a shared love of good rock.

The music is inspired by classic melodic rock artists like Neil Young and Tom Petty, but Forth adds a contemporary flavour, blending classic acoustic with modern electric sounds. Forth has thick vocals with a grungy, emotional edge. Deep, melodic guitars sit on top of growling bass and thundering drums. The music is like an old friend you haven’t seen in a long time – but now he’s changed, and grown up with the times. Old is new again.
