Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Rob Zombie... countless notable bands have made waves by carrying the namesake of their lead singer, and it’s time to make room for one more. Expanding from their local stomping ground of San Francisco, CA and asserting their engaging sound and live show up and down the west coast, eclectic audio-artists Forrest Day are poised to take on the big time.
In a recent review from AbsolutePunk.net, Forrest Day is given a rave review, stating: “Idiosyncratic. Original. Novel. Call it whatever you like, but let this be known: Bay Area musician Forrest Day is easily one of the most captivating individuals the cultural-rich locale has ever produced. Yes, ever. Throw him in the mix with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Jane's Addiction and Green Day, this genre-bending wizard is something else altogether”.
In addition to turning new heads every day, Forrest Day recently signed with Breaking Bands LLC, the new management firm directed and founded by the powerhouse team of Testament vocalist and co-manager Chuck Billy, Adrenaline PR CEO Maria Ferrero, and former MegaForce Records and Crazed Management owners Jon and Marsha Zazula.
Chuck Billy states: “The first time I saw Forrest Day play live, they were just such a fresh sound to my ears and I thought the frontman Forrest was such a great vocalist with an original style. Coincidentally, I ran into them at Soundwave Studio where Testament rehearses (they happen to rehearse there, too), and it turned out that they were looking for management. The rest is history”.
Maria Ferrero adds: “Working with Forrest Day is very rewarding for me because Forrest Day’s music is the epitome of outside the box: unique and inspiring”.
“We love working with Forrest Day because we’re gluttons for punishment and we’re absolutely in love with Forrest’s mind”, adds Jonny and Marsha Zazula.
Forrest Day will perform at The Viper Room in Hollywood, CA on May 15, 2014 at 8:00PM sharp. Come on out and take a listen to what Forrest Day has to offer!
Forrest Day boasts a distinctive sound, featuring a mix of the eclectic styles Forrest grew up playing and loving— jazz, funk, ska, pop, rap etc. Catchy hooks blended with addictive raps over creative and rich instrumentals create the basis of what Forrest Day is today.
Forrest Day began forming his music career in the early nineties, making beats and producing tapes with local rappers. After making some popular underground mixtapes with local M.C.’s, Forrest and his now established set of band members enlisted engineer Luke Dillon and found themselves an EP production deal with Chocolate O’Brian, a team comprised of Stephen Bradley (No Doubt) and Dave Tweedie. Several years and two buzzing independent full-length releases later, Forrest Day is gearing up for an impressive 2014. Be ready for great things coming soon.
