"Nick Forbes 2004 Demo CD and Live performance at Scorz, Nashua."

You have to give any guy credit that will get on stage at a club, with just himself, a friend and an acoustic guitar and sing from his heart and soul. That’s why I give much credit to a new artist, Nick Forbes. He doesn’t need drums, lighting effects, a sound board, or for that matter, any source of electricity to draw you into his light hearted array of love songs that will make you hang onto every lyric just to see what he will sing next.

Nick Forbes is defiantly one of a kind in the local underground music scene. Aside from the everyday 5 man alternative rock band you’re used to seeing, Forbes performs mostly alone with some assistance from another guitarist and vocalist, Jaymee. His acoustic sound and sweet lyrics are sure to have any girl swooning and any guy wish he was clever enough to be able serenade his girl with words like these. His sound is comparable to that of Ryan Cabrera and John Mayer. Bottom line, it’s just great music to listen to, you can take these lyrics in and give them meaning to your own life. Nick writes about situations we can all relate to.

Forbes emanates a bold confidence in his performance. He sings directly to you and is certainly grateful of his fans. His music is powerful, yet mellow, it’s one of those CD’s that you can listen to the entire thing and not want to skip over to another song. He knows he is good and he has certain sincerity in the way he sings. That’s probably because he writes his own lyrics, layouts his own Cd’s and helps produce them as well, he does it all! I find this to be another rare and valuable trait that is seen less and less in the music industry.

Nick’s influences include; Ryan Cabrera, Something Corporate, and Jack’s Mannequins. He’s a Billerica, Massachusetts native, but performs all over. Nick draws in most of his inspiration on a lyrical basis. He takes the words in, the meaning behind them, and uses that theory on his own music. Forbes is defiantly going somewhere real. His sincerity and authenticity make him stand out from most local acts. He is a dedicated artist who sings from his inner most points, what he really feels inside. Those are the qualities of a true star who will stick around for time to come.
