Chris Forsyth
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 11:00pm - 11:40pm @ The Whiskey Room (503 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701)

    Guitarist Chris Forsyth's hypnotic compositions assimilate minimalism and psychedelia with art rock, folk, and blues influences. He has toured throughout Europe and the US, sharing stages with such like-minded artists as Träd Gräs och Stenar, Steve Gunn, Bill Orcutt, and Ignatz, and as a member of gothic junk folk expressionists Peeesseye, the group he founded in 2002. Paranoid Cat, Forsyth's third LP, was released in March 2011 on Family Vineyard and has been described as "the work of an emergent master" (Uncut) and "a rapturous transmutation of noise into light" (Wire). In December 2011, Family Vineyard re-issued his Dreams LP, originally released in 2009 as an edition of 100 on his own Evolving Ear label, and Blackest Rainbow issued Early Astral, and LP collaboration with Koen Holtkamp of Mountains. Forsyth is a recipient of a 2011 Pew Fellowship in the Arts and lives in the City of Philadelphia, Penn.
