Forq is an instrumental quartet with an aggressive sound and a penchant for sonic exploration. This all-star band based in New York has recently completed their third album - Thrēq - released on August 4, 2017. Founded by keyboardist Henry Hey (David Bowie, Empire of the Sun, Jeff "Tain" Watts), Forq is joined by guitarist Chris McQueen (Snarky Puppy, Foe Destroyer, Bokanté), drummer Jason ‘JT’ Thomas (Roy Hargrove’s RH Factor, Marcus Miller, D’Angelo), and bassist Kevin Scott (Wayne Krantz. Colonel Bruce Hampton). Their sound is at once fierce, playful, and soulful - rich in both musical intelligence and undeniable pocket. It draws from various musical paths of it’s members, whether it’s Jason’s swampy grooves and shuffles, Chris’ singular sonic approach to guitar, Henry’s zeal for unique keyboard sounds and twisted ear candy, or Kevin's low-end force that is influenced by his southern roots and his vast and eclectic music experiences. The band pushes further down the sonic rabbit hole with the stunning new material on Thrēq.
