East Forest

Under the moniker of East Forest, Portland’s Trevor Oswalt weaves ethereal soundscapes from vintage keys, intimate vocals and original field recordings. His sonic architecture reflects motifs of nature and the inner spiritual landscape, and experiments with elements of pop and contemporary themes. The wide-ranging textural sound has been called “blissful” by National Public Radio and has been compared to Sigur Ros, Bon Iver and Explosions in the Sky. He has collaborated with Deepak Chopra, shared stages with artists including Moby, Sarah Neufeld and Random Rab, and composed and licensed music for TV, film, theatre, apps, video games and dance companies.
