Profile: Austin, Texas-based musician, singer, storyteller, and songwriter. In 1999 Forsyth & Artie Gold recorded their recorded first Blues album, Scalpel & Sledgehammer on cassette tape. We sold it at gigs, took some to the Antone’s record shop, there might be a couple still there.
In 1999, Can You Live Without was released, and in the following year Steak. Forsyth tried to promote both efforts but his record label hit financial trouble and momentum was lost In 2005 Love Songs: For and Against was issued Forsyth contributed "Thanks Me" to the satirical album Floater: A Tribute to the Tributes to Gary Floater, released early in 2018 on the Austin-based Eight 30 Records.
In 1999 Forsyth & Artie Gold recorded their recorded first Blues album, Scalpel & Sledgehammer on cassette tape. Clifford Antone signed Guy to his prestigious Antone’s Blues Label after Guy’s band landed an every Sunday residency that lasted ten years (Needle Gun, Can you Live Without, Steak), and winning The Austin Chronicle Readers Poll for Best Blues Band for several years running. Clifford Antone’s label suffered some trouble with the Law after being involved with a rather massive marijuana bust and, despite the records being critically acclaimed, the label went into a series of bankruptcies. Frustrated, Guy could not get his own records to sell.
The Guy Forsyth Band issued their Discovery/Warner Bros. label debut Needle Gun in 1995. On it, his quartet reinvigorates the blues-rock form, taking the music into uncharted waters. Forsyth is accompanied in his band on Needle Gun by Gil T. on bass, Keith Bradley on guitar and Rich Chilleri on drums. The music on their debut is equal parts blues, rock & roll and Americana. Forsyth sings with conviction and plays harmonica and some smoldering guitar. Live, the band is what you'd expect from any good blues-rock conglomeration: loud, raw and raucous
