Emerging alt-pop artist Forrest Isn’t Dead, who draws parallels to such acts as The Cure, Gorillaz, and Tame Impala, will be coming to Chattanooga on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at Cherry Street Tavern with Tayls in support of his debut full-length album The End Of Everything, out this September.

Review for Forrest Isn't Dead:

Due out Sept. 16 via Madison Records, The End Of Everything features Forrest Isn’t Dead’s newest single “Wash Away”. The album is also highlighted by recent singles “Goodbye” and “Born or Made,” which have received support from Spotify’s New Noise, New Music Friday and Fresh Finds Rock playlists and VEVO’s Incoming Alternative playlist, as well as previously released tracks “Fire,” “Here We Are” and “The Light.” The 12-track collection is a haunting and hypnotic hybrid of alternative, pop, and rock twisted up with just the right amount of electronic mystique and glitchy beatcraft. It’s an honest album about life and death, with an overlying theme of being born again as a better person.

Known for his introspective and candid lyrics, Forrest Isn’t Dead pours out the stories of his life experiences and hardships through his unique and thought-provoking music. Growing up with a single mother and limited resources, the Atlanta-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist found early inspiration as a child in music and skateboarding, which played a major role in developing his feelings about life and love.

Forrest later dove head-first into writing original music, learning to play drums, guitar, piano, and, of course, singing in addition to honing his production skills. Artists such as The Cure, My Chemical Romance, Gorillaz, and Prince were big influences on his creative direction, but battling adversity and overcoming his own challenges were a benchmark towards shaping the person he is today.

Since debuting in 2019, Forrest Isn’t Dead has garnered roughly 400K total streams across DSPs and over 660K total YouTube views in addition to support from Alternative Press (as a New Artist You Need To Hear), MTV (Spankin’ New), and Substream Magazine, among others, for his original music.
