brooks forsyth

Hailing from Boone, North Carolina, Brooks Forsyth is a new class of Americana singer-songwriter. A versatile guitar player, Brooks reels in crowds with masterful flat and fingerpicking and keeps them there with his melodic storyteller’s voice. His songwriting encompasses a variety of genres within Americana: folk, country blues, bluegrass, and roots rock.

Brooks is an accomplished songwriter with three albums under his belt, receiving both international accolades and radio play. His newest project, So Much Beyond Us, was released on September 21, 2018. The album traverses work, life, and love through down-home country storytelling. Upon listening, it is clear that Brooks grew up studying the best of classic Americana, tipping his hats to the greats whilst blending in his own modern roots.

Along with Buzz and Parker Cason, Brooks recorded with producers at Nashville’s Creative Workshop. So Much Beyond Us includes musicians Sadler Vaden, guitarist of Jason Isbell's 400 Unit, Grand Old Opry fiddler Eamon McLoughlin, bassist Michael Rinne, drummer Jon Radford, and multi-instrumentalist Wanda Vick.

“Brooks Forsyth's mid-range vocal tones emote a unique vulnerability with a strong command over his talents.” - Patch

“[Brooks Forsyth] keeps us glued to his strong, conversational country songs.” - Roughstock
