About Chris Forsyth
Chris Forsyth connects the dots between Television’s anthemic art-rock, Bill Frisell’s chiming atmospherics, and Can’s relentless rhythm workouts 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. Pitchfork called his music “a near-perfect balance between 70s rock tradition and present-day experimentation,” NPR Music named Forsyth “one of rock’s most lyrical guitar improvisors,” and the New York Times calls him “a scrappy and mystical historian… His music humanizes the element of control in rock classicism (and) turns it into a woolly but disciplined ritual.”
