Composed of some of LA’s most prolific musicians, the band met in early 2014 in the Los Angeles professional music scene. Scott Goldbaum (formerly of Wise Cub) leads the band with beautiful vocals and melodic guitar, while classically trained Molly Rogers viola adds a layer that is truly captivating. Mike Mussleman (drums) and Nick Chamian (bass) round out the four piece with one of the most impressive, and methodical rhythm sections in indie rock today. Individually band members have worked with artists/bands including Feist, Bastille, Kamasi Washington, Randy Jackson, Keith Urban, Kimbra among others.
Less than a year later, Forebear quickly caught the attention of famed producer/engineer Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, Atlas Genius) when he saw them perform at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles. Lilavois produced their upcoming release Good God and recorded it at the famed London Bridge Studios in Seattle. Good God begins with the commanding single “Delroy Lindo” which touches upon a somewhat darker tinge to the sunny promises of California. “It’s about two people who moved to the West Coast to be together, only to have the illusion of what they thought waited for them be eaten alive by their false romanticism” Goldbaum.
Good God is set for release August 26.
