Forté

Full Biography

Forté is a self confessed personal development addict. He is currently mixing a potent combination of Vipassana meditation, Nonviolent Communication and Heart Sharing Circles to strive for dizzy heights of equanimity and self-awareness.
The Adelaide-based singer songwriter guitarist writes and performs “positive meaningful folk rock music for social change” around Australia. From the National and Woodford Folk Festivals to a house concert around the corner. Expect warm humour and energetic gusto at a live performance whether solo or in collaboration with other talented musicians.
The studio album, “CONDUIT” is a lush recording of captivating lyrics and exquisite instrumentation. The new DVD, ”Live & Equanimous” features a rousing string section, rich harmonies, pulsating didgeridoo and grounding beats. The recently released single, “OpportuniTea” is an uplifting, toe-tapping journey towards global compassion.
Forté feels a deep sense of purpose to use his accumulated merits for the good of others. He uses his roles as musician, high school teacher and White Ribbon Ambassador to promote respectful relationships, gender equality and healthy, authentic masculinity. His song, Spirit Of Woman is gifted in support of hope, healing, courage and unity.
He is also a teetotaling tea-lover who prefers it strong, sweet and (soy) milky. His favourite blends include jasmine green, authenticiTea, vulnerabiliTea, communiTea and the occasional chocolate chai mocha.
