FORKSTER Music Promotions!
Growing up I started listening to the mesmerizing music sounds at the age of 5, back in 1968. My wonderful late mother who I will forever be grateful for in guiding me on learning all styles/genres and to always keep my ears open for something that makes you move and groove and hits you in the heart and soul at first listen. With my connection to music, my mother will forever be known as my ambassador in me keeping the music real, always.
I have since in my almost 50 years later of music being always a driving force in my life have taken it upon myself in carrying a promo torch in discovering and promoting music artists the last 7 years from the genre ranks of post-punk, electronic dance (synthpop/new wave/dreampop/darkwave), folk, punk rock, garage rock, psychedelic rock, country, jazz, rock and roll, spoken word, celtic rock, alternative rock, heavy metal/hard rock thunder, jangle pop, Christian rock, rockabilly, indie rock, pop rock, art rock, blues rock, ska, glam rock, reggae, thrash metal, rocksteady, rhythm & blues, Krautrock, progressive rock, southern rock and so many more.
