About Me
San Francisco Bay Area troubadour and award winning songwriter, Forest Sun has regaled audiences around the globe with his wealth of songs and stories, all sung and told with back porch ease and bonhomie. He's opened for Bonnie Raitt, The Beach Boys, Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Jackson Browne and Keb Mo among others and collaborations on his many records include the likes of such musical luminaries as Jolie Holland, Sean Hayes, ALO, Hot Buttered Rum to name a few.
In 2007 Forest was awarded 1st place in the Pacific Song Writing Competition with "Drops in the Ocean," and in 2009 his song "Gurus and Rockstars" from the album “Harlequin Goodnight” was nominated for best song in the Just Plain Folks Awards.
His music provided soundtracks for "Land of Saints, " "A Common Thread," and "5th Symphony Document."
Forest Sun has been featured on KFOG Local Scene Vol. 1 and 3 and the Japanese compilations "Surf Time" vol. 1 and 2.
As well as producing his own 7 records, “Not Afraid,” “Plenty,” “For the Story,” “Walk through Walls,” “So Nice,” “Harlequin Goodnight” and the 2010 release of the children's record, “Just for Fun,” Forest Sun has produced Minneapolis song-writer Alex Goldfarb, the benefit CDs Songs for Laura" Vol 1 and 2 and hosted the monthly Songbird Series at the Bazaar Cafe and Songbird Radio on KWMR.
Acoustically, he tours with Ingrid Serban singing harmonies and the full band includes David Phillips on lap steel, Steve Adams from ALO on bass and Michael Messer on drums.
Sun's music has been compared to everyone from Jack Johnson to Van Morrison but his unique style is entirely his own. As one reviewer said, "Forest Sun's music is full of life—real life, that is. It is joyful, but also poignant, upbeat and at the same time deep and soulful. His cd is a must-have, but a live performance is even better." Elisabeth Lesser

As we're preparing to head into the studio to record a new album, some old and new thoughts on songs are surfacing.
What is it that makes a song shine? Is it the structure, theme, a catchy refrain...? Yes, all of these, I know, and much more.
I am always amazed to see Forest in the act of song writing. It's like watching a sculptor give shape to a piece of marble. I like watching it come to life and recognizing its features.
And then, in a matter of…
