“Super promising.” – Nialler9
“A sonically sophisticated slice of indie- folk.. Never skips a beat in terms of songwriting.. A new and exciting sound bathed in reverb and given life by great melody, harmony and rhythm.. The trio’s wild-hearted folk sound will not stay a secret for very long.” – The Last Mixed Tape.
“For Foresters’ success seems to be of constant growth. Proven when they had their own lyrics sung back to them by an awed crowd.” – The Manuscript SOCIAL
