A noteworthy solo musician will always give you pause, no matter what they are doing. The kind of pause that sticks your feet to the ground, and transfixes your gaze. You don't always know when it'll happen, but when it does its completely unforgettable. That's what you get when you see Forest Bailey play live. Armed with his steel string acoustic and harp guitar, he does away with vocals and guitar picks to craft a unique combination of fingerstyle and percussive playing that is all his own. Drawing from influences like Michael Hedges, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and even Dream Theater, each song is a musical journey that further shows what two hands and an acoustic guitar can accomplish. Within each song, the musical moments he sets up soar high above you, make your heart a little warmer, and make you groove right along with Forest. He underscores these sonic moments with a stage presence that exudes every ounce of passion for what he does. The smile on his face never fades away, and neither will yours. With a knack for sensing his audience and providing the perfect soundtrack to any event, he carefully crafts each performance to the interests of the audiences with a vast list of covers and diverse range of original music. Forest has entertained up and down the West Coast from San Diego to Portland in venues such as Coffee Gallery Backstage in Los Angeles, State Theater in Auburn, Portland Saturday Market, Winter NAMM, 89.5 KVMR Nevada City Radio, weddings as well as countless wineries, breweries and restaurants. He has toured with Canadian guitarist Adam Crossman, and Colombian guitarist Oscar Mendez. You can find Forest on his Website, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.

Wow! That’s the best way to describe our experience hiring Forest for our intimate wedding ceremony in Lake Tahoe. He really impressed our guests and us! He plays beautifully, he was very professional and he had a great attitude. I requested to walk down the aisle to an acoustic version of the song “Thank You” by LED Zeppelin. He played it perfectly. He is talented and well worth the investment if you’re looking for a great guitar player that will make your special day even more memorable.
