“MELPOMENE” EP OUT NOV 1ST (ON AUDIBLE PAINT RECORDS) featuring all-star cast.

B FORREST is a singer-songwriter, performer, and producer from Chicago (and a current 2019 DCASE IAP grantee). After attending art school in Chicago, he spent time traveling the globe while refining his first “folk-soul” album Back to Bodhi. After returning to his home-town he was awarded a City Of Chicago Individual Artist Grant in 2017, and again in 2019. He is also a John Lennon Songwriting Competition finalist for his song “Grown Child (feat. Sam Trump). His style has evolved based from his extensive travels and life experiences, all the while there remains a thread of soul in his playing and writing, no matter if the genre is folk, bluegrass, jazz, rock, hip-hop, world, or electronic music. In 2019 he debuted a new experimental lo-fi project called Kid Slang alongside producer and multi-instrumentalist Blasé. Together they have released two EPs in the first half of 2019, the first being School Days and the sophomore follow-up Synthwav. An in demand collaborator, he has contributed or produced for artists such as Denmark Vessey, Anders Nordstrom, Maïa Aboualiten, Maggie Vagle, Liberty Jones, Da$htone, Buy Muy Drugs, Penelope Antena, Marc Desse, Lonely Band, and many others. Aside from a performing and studio artist, he is the founder of publishing house Audible Paint, co-founder of Form Chicago.
