'Forrest Rourke doesn’t need you to like him. But he does need to make music, and we are privileged he allows us to hear it. On his terms. The man may treasure his privacy, but when he sings, his voice is filled with raw emotion. He chooses covers that clearly resonate with him, yet makes them authentically his own. With Rourke’s original songs, his words come straight from the heart. His jagged voice and bluesy guitar speak of his own experience of human vulnerability and finding power in darkness and struggle. His style is unpolished, passionate, spirited; qualities I find essential to the music I am drawn to. Forrest Rourke may be reluctant to be known, but cast that mystery aside and savour his music.' - Longtime Fan - 2018
New music being recorded for September release, enjoy his 'One shot covers' - 'Inside these walls' which is an ongoing music project whereby Forrest records covers for the first time with as little focus on production as possible and extra emphasis on passion and delivery, something missing from most music in this era.
