Talkin' bout the younger generation - The Foresters
These young lads warrant our attention, there is nothing more awe inspiring then the younger set having a dream and pursuing it with vigor and determination. I wish them the best of luck in there future endeavors on a path that requires the utmost of devotion to craft and sacrifice. They are off to a great start.
The Foresters consist of the three Nork brothers (Evan- age 12, Hayden- age 10, Liam- age 9) who have been exposed to all varieties of musical influences and live performances since they were born. The boys were inspired to form their own band after seeing a Green Day concert in 2010. They had virtually no experience, but decided to use their savings accounts to buy their instruments. The boys kept practicing and played their first concert at the Amity Teen Center (Woodbridge, CT) in November of that same year.
In less than two years, the boys have written over 20 original songs and have played in multiple venues, such as Terminal 110, The Space, The Room, The Cave at RVP, BAR, and the legendary Toad's Place. The band also played for the ASRC Walk for Autism (in Wallingford, CT) and for the Runway for A Cause (in Long Island). This year, The Foresters had the privilege of opening for two awesome CT music festivals: Ideat Village (in New Haven) and the Meriden Daffodil Festival. The boys are excited to announce that they will be recording their first EP in early August of this year!
