ItÂÂs been a long and dusty, winding road for Austin singer/songwriter Guy Forsyth thatÂÂs lead to a recent surge in praise over his dazzling live shows and his rich Americana roots sound. Forsyth (vocals, acoustic, electric, & slide guitar, harmonica, ukulele, singing saw), along with Will Landin (bass/tuba) and Rob Hooper (drums/Cajon), bring a unique mixture of styles such as folk, rock, country, and Tin Pan Alley to create a sound thatÂÂs as heterogeneous, raw and compelling as America itself. YouÂÂll hear powerhouse vocals deliver energetic yarns about love, the government and the apocalypse, to name a few, as Forsyth and company squeeze everything they have into each song and rarely come up for air.
Forsyth brought his skills as a stellar live performer to help found and make infamous nationwide the theatrical acoustic group The Asylum Street Spankers. He gave Wammo his first washboard and Christina Marrs her first guitar and ukelele. His time with the Spankers touring and recording 5 albums added to a wealth of earlier unique experiences in his life ÂÂ working as a stuntman in renaissance shows, busking on the streets of New Orleans and playing on a mountain top in Nepal ÂÂ which provided him musical fodder to be refined in the songs of ForsythÂÂs numerous solo albums. The release of his latest, Calico Girl, which features new songs as well as re-recordings of some of GuyÂÂs most popular songs from 1999's Can You Live Without, marks the fourth album for the record label he started in 2002, Small and Nimble Records.
