Forest and The Evergreens
Formed in Ohio’s capitol city in late 2011, Forest and the Evergreens have been honing a smooth, spirited sound that melds Soul, Funk, R&B, Rock, Reggae and Blues into an at-times swaying and other-times punching end result they’ve dubbed “Young Funk.” The quintet launched its first release, Young Funk EP, in June of 2014. The release showcases two distinct sides of the group, with songs like “PFUNK” and “Spaceghost” exhibiting its up-tempo Funk roots, while other songs like “Lady” and “Mad at You” show off Forest and the Evergreens’ knack for soft Blues serenades. The Evergreens continue to tour and sharpen their already crisp sound, while also pushing hard toward their upcoming debut studio album.
