Bio

The Forks is a loosely defined outfit. Long before the official genesis of the band there were many years of jamsmanship and once-a-gig band names. The Forks have sifted their way through members and styles and continue to have an open perspective toward collaborating. In the summer of 2009, Saskatoon based group, The Elevators, set out on tour for NYC. We were all new to eachother and fostered our chemistry. With shared inspiration both projects, Forks and Elevators, have kept us busy with home recording sessions and gigs all around Saskatchewan.

James McKnight got behind the kit for the Forks in January 2011. That is when the original scores took shape in a groove. The Forks have been at core, a three piece. Donovan, Hank and James all bring coolness to the table. The sound has been called grungy, Weezer or Nirvana influenced, and it has, we all worship Mr. Neil Young and know the roots of creation. John Lee Hooker, Muddy, R.Charles, J.Brown Mississippi John Hurt. We welcome the fusion of all styles of music and cut it raw and thrash it rock n roll. The Music we make stands for itself. When we get on a roll, we cover everything from Elvis, Ween, Hank Williams, J.Cash, T.Petty, Bluegrass hits like Will the Circle be Unbroken, everything Stones, Neil, Beatles and Dylan.
