Chicago singer-songwriter/ producer/ guitarist B Forrest’s palette of audible paint contains the colours blues, folk, love, and soul. His debut album “Back to Bodhi” (released May 2015), was featured on publications such as AfroPunk, Pilerats, Rage (NBC Aus), Vocalo (NPR), Local Anesthetic (XRT), amongst others; and his song "Grown Child (ft. Sam Trump)" was nominated as a John Lennon Songwriting Competition Finalist. B performs both solo or with his live band, "The Bodhis". He has performed in over five countries and completed a national U.S. tour in 2015.
Currently in studio working on his Sophomore album (coming summer 2016), this time with a nod to future-soul, hip-hop, jazz, and electronica, B is embarking on fresh ground that will indulged the ears to his electric-eclectic vision of a music that is both steeped in tradition and propels itself into the modern soundscape.
