Chris Forsyth

Philadelphia-based guitarist/bandleader Chris Forsyth has released a string of acclaimed records of sprawling, widescreen guitar rock. He and his current band featuring bassist Douglas McCombs (Tortoise) and drummer Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker) have quickly developed a reputation as an incredible live act, provoking comparisons to visionary artists such as Television, Popol Vuh, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Richard Thompson.

Despite psychedelic leanings, Forsyth’s music has always trained toward ​​concision — plenty of space, yet never slack— in tunes that erupt with startling swiftness, then spend the rest of their quick-burning lives teasing multiple moods and patterns out of relatively simple materials. His newest album, Evolution Here We Come, was released in August 2022 on No Quarter and its combination of lyrical art rock, chiming atmospherics, and motorik precision has grown the Philadelphia-based guitarist's unique reputation as a leading guitar stylist for jam and indie fans alike.
