Chris Forsyth Embarks on July US Tour, Premieres Video on Ad Hoc

On the occasion of his new record, Kenzo Deluxe, hitting stores July 10th, guitarist Chris Forsyth is embarking on a sixteen date solo tour across the East Coast and Midwest. He’ll be pulling off not one, but two album release shows–the first in his former stomping grounds of Brooklyn (July 13th) and the second in his new adopted home of Philadelphia (July 14th).

Chris has also just premiered an amazing psychedelic trip of a music video on the Ad Hoc site. The visuals are set to the single “Boston Street Lullaby No.2″ by Nadia Hironaka & Matthew Suib, featuring sweeping rainbow images of birds, bees, trees and even a canine. Totally engrossing and beautiful stuff.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT CHRIS FORSYTH

“On the song ‘East Kensington Run Down,’ Forsyth repeats a heavy-boogie riff until slipping into a claustrophobic display of twinkling, stabbing harmonics. And on ‘Boston Street Lullaby I,’ named after the street where his family lives, Forsyth plays mesmeric, spaced-out blues.” – Elliott Sharp, Metro Philly

“It’s enough to signal Forsyth’s arrival as an erudite and farsighted guitar stylist, mapping a path that’s hip and scholarly in equal measure.” - Daniel Spicer, The Wire Magazine

“A destructible charm teetering on violence and elegance” - Eric Weddle, Signal to Noise Magazine

“…a style as mesmerizing and transcendent as any of his forebears.” - Bob Bannister, TimeOutNY
