Gold Coast emcee Forbes has always felt like he saw the world a little differently. Younger days caught in a world of his own vivid imagination quickly become memories to mourn and fear. A self confessed loner, Forbes is a rapper with an unfamiliar story to tell.
2011 brought forth many career landmarks. Under the wing of new found friend and mentor Pez, Forbes earned his place as opening act for Pez & 360 on their national Change It For The Better Tour. Hard work and cunning saw Forbes battle his way onto the stage at Sprung Hip-Hop festival and most recently he supported Melbourne duo Justice & Kaos.
Now, leaving his fate to the Universe. Forbes is making his mark in 2012 with his third release the Once Upon A Dream EP (2012). The EP is most certainly taking those few steps back off the narrow path and pushing onward down the road to prosperity. By embracing his shortcomings and playing to his strengths and with the team stronger then ever before, Forbes welcomes you to take a journey through his dreams and nightmares.
With his latest track, Walk On Dreams Feat. Sonia De Pellegrin, Forbes teams up with South Australian producer One Above (Hilltop Hoods, Prime, Tommy Ill) . Described by Forbes as his most important track to date, this is the first single of his upcoming EP Once Upon A Dream.
‘I was in a bit of a creative hole for the best part of a year and the music I was making in that time reflects that. So for me this song is a real breath of fresh air. It was the first time in a long time that the lyrics that poured out and flow fit perfectly with that beat combined with Sonia De Pellegrin on the hook, it was a perfect marriage.’
The EP will be released in April for free download. Forbes is currently working hard in the studio with Chance Waters, who recorded Walk On Dreams, as well as the full EP.
Forbes recently appeared in his first battle with Real Talk Battle league held in Brisbane on March 17, footage for this battle will be released April 16. The clip for Walk On Dreams will be out soon.
