Steve Forbert
Artist

Singer-songwriter, Steve Forbert is one of our favorites. He has been one of my favorites since I first heard his "Tonight I Feel So Far Away From Home" from the "Alive on Arrival" album.  His songs document life.  He recently released a memoir of stories from his coming up through the music industry, starting with his departure from Meridian, Mississippi at the age of 21.
