Formed in Ohio’s capital city in 2012, Forest & the Evergreens have been honing a smooth, spirited sound that melds Soul, Funk, R&B, Rock, and Blues into an at-times swaying and other-times punching end result they’ve dubbed “Young Funk.” The quintet launched its first independent release, Young Funk EP, in May of 2016.
The release showcases two distinct sides of the group, with songs like “PFUNK” and “Spaceghost” exhibiting its up-tempo Funk roots, while other songs like “Lady” and “Mad at You” show off Forest & the Evergreens’ knack for soft Jazz and Blues serenades. The Evergreens continue to tour and sharpen their already crisp sound, while also pushing hard toward their upcoming debut studio album, due out in fall of 2017.
