Lip Forest

Lip Forest

Based in Quw’utsun Territory on Vancouver Island, but grown on the Boreal shores of Lac La Ronge Saskatchewan, Lip Forest was conceptualized and brought to life by singer songwriter John Stewart. In studio, Stewart embraces a rotating collective of artists to create and push dark moods and cavernous melodies. This same atmosphere is brought to the stage through morose solo performances that might just warm your heart. Influenced by artists such as Timber Timbre, Angel Olsen, Bill Withers, Jasmine Trails, and Patrick Watson, Lip Forest combines sultry lyrics with “redundant chords” bathed in reverb to bring the audience unnerving, yet soothing, performances.
