The Forever Agos hail from a little town in the Pacific Northwest we all know as Portland OR. Their unique blend of indie pop, Americana, and even a little doo-wop create an experience that truly sets them apart of the Portland music scene. Stand out track “Honey I’m Home” showcases a their raw talent as songwriters, harmonizers and storytellers. Previously released single “Want and Need” was great introduction to the album, and set the stage for an eclectic record that is both rewarding and haunting.
The Forever Agos got off to a serendipitous start. Each wandering from Alaska over the past decade, Wes, Derrin and Tobin reunited in Portland over a few drinks at Renner’s. “Derrin was tending bar and Tobin had an internship at a studio down the street. That night, at that studio, is when we first jammed out Foolin Around and I knew we had to be a band.” Wes recalls. That song would later become the title track of their first album. The three moved in together in 2015 and had a practice space to call home. It was clear they needed some serious vocal backup to manifest their sound. One karaoke session and a roller skating outing later, they expanded the band — Stef, Lara, and Stacey joined taking them to the next level and giving The Forever Agos their true sound. Each band member adores their individuality and they come together to create a sound all their own, which is exhibited in both their first album and new music. “We were lone wolves in need of a pack. But we found each other and now we’re a family, a tribe,” remarks Lara. There is a clear bond between each member and the music they’re making, which makes for an incredibly personal and touching performance.
