Singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Forrest McDonald is a journeyman in the blues rock music world. He defies any easy pigeonhole. His guitarwork on Bob Seger’s ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’ and Bobby Womack’s ‘Roads Of Life’ is instantly recognizable. He picks a great guitar and sings well crafted upbeat songs about modern life. Forrest and his band are just as comfortable playing a shuffle, or a raw Chicago-style blues, as they are playing a slow heart wrenching Texas blues or a hard driven, rocking’ down home boogie.
Originally from Austin, Texas Forrest McDonald’s career began 50 years ago, and has spawned dozens of recordings and international acclaim. Turnaround Blues, his 12th CD release on World Talent Records, has just been released. This music doesn’t need anyone’s stamp of approval. It’s ‘certified blue’ through and through!
