Chris Forsyth: August 4, 2021 Sultan Room

Chris Forsyth returns to live performance in the most perfect way. Like most performers, he hasn’t performed properly in over a year, but for his two-show comeback last week, Chris compiled a provocative quartet of top musicians, all of whom are quite familiar with these pages. Tom Malach is the founder and lead guitarist of site favorites Garcia People, Ryan Jewel has appeared here in about a dozen different formats, mainly with Riley Walker and Doug McCombs Seminal Turtle and his Brokeback project. Forsyth itself appears many times on this site, and always brings products. But this show was a completely different animal.

If this performance was an indication, Chris Forsyth emerged from the lockdown while maintaining a well-respected new component and the accuracy of his play. The chorus that was served last week in the Sultan’s Room (and the next night Philly) was strict, attentive, and thorough. The four new songs (and the new cover) were presented in almost full size (excluding the title of the work) and as if these four musicians were playing regular compositions. This means that the show flowed from start to finish and left the enthusiastic and sharp crowd candidly stunned with the quality of the performance.

I set this set up in front of and in the middle of the stage with an outdoor friendly large diaphragm Newman microphone and mixed it with a soundboard feed provided by the most excellent Emmys Cole Palmer. I am extremely satisfied with the quality of this recording and hope you enjoy it as much as the sold out crowd and I did that night.

Chris Forsyth returns to the West Coast for a show on October 9, 2021 in Crystal Cavern, Oakland. The band will include Doug McCombs and Ryan Jewel. This is Chris’ first show in California since 2014. Tickets are available [here].
