Shadows and Ghost Notes - 2015
is my 22nd release. (including the 45’s) But it's
kind of a first for me in one regard. On it, I play all
the guitar. Out of the 22 tracks 6 are recorded with a
trio: Tyler Thomson Upright bass, Tom Chute Drums and
myself on Guitar/harmonica/vocals. With a little frattoir,
washboard & tambourine thrown in. 13 of the cuts are
just harmonica, guitar and vocals. There are 2 harmonica
instrumentals and one is a duet with Helen Gillet on cello.
100% AJF original songs.
Rooms - 2012
Rooms, the 18th album from New Orleans-based songwriter
Andy J Forest, adds another chapter to his portfolio, which
he’s quietly built into one of the most impressive
songwriting catalogs in the city.
Story: The Triumph Of Turmoil - 2010
Andy J Forest said at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage
Festival in May, 2011 that he had his guitar made out of
boards from his house, which in turn had been made using
wood from an old barge. Both live and on his latest album,
“NOtown Story: The Triumph of Turmoil,” Forest’s
voice sounds almost as weathered as that guitar.

From Hell - The Book - 1998
is the story of five unfortunate musicians. Each one has
a cruel and twisted past with sins ranging from murder
to prostitution. They are plunged into an afterlife nightmare
when they are killed in an explosion and are sent directly
to the Devil's blues club located in a suburb of the second
ring of Hell. The band's road manager survives the blast
only to live through his own personal Hell on Earth. It
is a wildly imaginative adventure, dealing with many levels
of the human psyche.
songs present an uncompromising look at the life of a traveling
musician... Also Forest proves his versatility by tackling
themes like insanity and growing old. His understated delivery
has a poignancy which comes from the heart".
