Bio

Forever Son is the project of singer-songwriter and guitarist Jack Robbins. Drawing inspiration from Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Daniel Rossen and Fleet Foxes, Forever Son’s sound is raw and free flowing with a splash of reverb. Tracks imbue dreamy, sun-soaked mornings without the restraint of calculated thought.

Growing up in Anglesea on Victoria's Surf Coast, Forever Son first picked up a guitar at age thirteen and started playing in bands not long after. Moving to Melbourne in 2013, Forever Son released a 7” split single that year with hometown friend, Fraser A. Gorman. The self-produced debut EP, Trout Fishing, followed in October 2014.

After the release of single, ‘Rambling Knots’ in October 2015, Forever Son headed back into the studio to write and record his first long-play, 10 Months. Following on from the release of singles, ‘San Jose’ in late 2016 and ‘Crumb Kitchen’ in early 2017, 10 Months was released to critical acclaim in May 2017.

Forever Son has spent the majority of 2018 ensconced in his new home studio back in Torquay on the Victorian surf coast. He has been writing and recording new material for the follow up to his LP debut, set for release in 2019.

I'm hearing shades of The Felice Brothers, Bill Callahan and Josh Ritter here and absolutely loving it. This is an absolute gift.

Loving the vibe (it's just the vibe, your honour) of this. The voice is great, and then when it ramps up towards the end...well, you listen. I won't spoil it. But I did a Pete Townsend.
