Chris Forsyth connects the dots between between anthemic art rock, chiming atmospherics, and motorik precision in taut compositions and mercurial improvisations that have earned the Philadelphia-based guitarist a unique reputation as a leading guitar stylist for jam and non-jam band fans alike. His newest studio album Evolution Here We Come, featuring contributions from Douglas McCombs (Tortoise), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate), Linda Pitmon (Baseball Project), Tom Malach (Garcia Peoples), Stuart Bogie (Antibalas), and Ryan Jewell (Ryley Walker), is out August 26, 2022 on No Quarter.
Since co-founding Philadelphia’s luminary psychedelic folk collective Espers, Meg Baird has been steadily creating a body of solo and collaborative work within folk, acoustic, electrified and underground music traditions. She has recorded with harpist Mary Lattimore, helped form Heron Oblivion as a drummer and vocalist, and has continued to create her own solo work featuring her beguiling guitar and song-writing. In her upcoming tour, Meg explores her solo work through the lens of her formidable past as a collaborator by creating her own unique version of a band with guest performers Chris Forsyth, Ryan Jewell, Douglas McCombs and Charlie Saufley.
