I am one half of indie-folk songwriting duo forestfloor. We make thoughtful and arresting unplugged music for fans of Bon Iver, Fairport Convention, Dirty Projectors, Adrianne Lenker, Radiohead.
Prior to forestfloor my music projects date back to 2001:
- Solo performer - while at art school in Kingston I joined an experimental music collective combining classical, folk and post-rock styles. I wrote introspective songs around fingerstyle acoustic guitar in open tunings. This period culminated in playing at Glastonbury Festival in 2008.
- Music producer - after moving back to Folkestone I self-produced many EPs and albums of brooding, atmospheric folktronica. I translated my multi-instrumental compositions to the stage using live-looping techniques.
- Boo, Forever - a collaborative project with Si Norton, Ben Fletcher, Natalie Evans and Rebecca Aimi. We shared songwriting duties and I produced our eponymous album, released on vinyl in 2013 by Something Something Records.
- Minor Planet - my rap alter ego. I made a playful alternative hip-hop album and shot some videos with local filmmaker Joel Snowman, capturing a common experience of our home town from the fringes.

"The blending of acoustic folk’s soft touch and the cold, processed sound of electronic production is something that has been tried a fair amount but has rarely clicked into place. Kent based Boo, Forever can count themselves amongst the minority that have succeeded. Their self-titled debut draws from the likes of Tuung, Bon Iver et al that have a fellow penchant for mixing the new and the old, resulting in something that is constantly intruiging and whose layers of experimentation are easy to lose one’s self in."Will Moss – Artrocker Mag
