Bio

Consisting of hip-hop producer Judah Winnett, electronic folk instrumentalist Jayke Barnes and indie pop vocalist Ayla (heard on triple j under her own project), ‘Forrest Run’ are a trio who are bringing the best of each of their worlds together into an exciting new project.

After jamming in Judah’s home studio late 2017, the trio realised they had something worth pursuing, and rapidly began accruing a set’s worth of demos. In 2018, they refined these demos into a debut EP, with the help of renowned producer Tim Carr (Matt Corby, Urthboy, Le Pie and many more).

Released in February, their debut single ‘All We Needed’ was the first taste of what’s to come from these three, and now their sophomore release ‘Let Me Fall’ is being dropped on the 22nd of March. Like the first release, this song was inspired by a dream. It depicts the changing scenes and emotions evoked throughout. The track shows off a moodier side to the trio’s sonic capabilities; using a spacious arrangement to showcase the heartfelt vocal.

One of their personal favourites, Forrest Run are proud to present their latest single ‘Let Me Fall’.

Really captivating stuff and great to hear Ayla's voice on a new project but certainly the production and instrumentation around it which are bang on

Ayla, you sound so great on this track. The billowing electronic track is a nice counterpoint to your stirring vocal. Cool to see this new group gelling so positively.
