As far as he can remember, James Forest’s world has revolved around music, musicians and musical instruments and very few people can remember seeing him without a guitar in his arms or on his back. The only reason this tireless traveller sits down is to play piano with great talent and emotion. The rest of the time, he can be found anywhere in the world, searching for artistic and personal freedom. Composer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and singer, the 30-year old Quebecer has already lived in the mountains of India and Pakistan, and spent extended periods in Europe.


Whether he is performing alone (James Forest), in a duo (June in the fields by James Forest), with a band (James Forest & the East Road) or recording musical projects, he is always sincere and passionate. Always searching for perfect sounds, perfect words and perfect moods, James manages to create a unique world where all listeners can find a bit of their own.
