Live Video: The Lonely Forest

photo by Amber Zbitnoff

Listening to The Lonely Forest is like looking up at the Northern Lights. On a crisp evening, a river rushing behind you, pine trees spotting the landscape, the shimmering aurora borealis hypnotizes. This is what it’s like taking in the grand, pleasantly wavering vocals of Lonely Forest lead singer John Van Deusen. The band, formed in Anacortes, WA, in 2005, has a myriad of accolades to its credit, from songs featured on major networks, to “Best Of” awards to playing live on Jimmy Kimmel. Their latest album, Adding Up the Wasted Hours, was recorded by Death Cab’s Chris Walla and was the impetus to a full-on national tour, beginning, of all places, in small Wenatchee, WA, and ending with a show at the Neptune in Seattle.

You can watch the band’s live performance at KEXP before they kicked off their tour below and see the band live for themselves, as they play with fellow guests Shelby Earle, The Helio Sequence, and Allen Stone plus a very special guest (and one that you will kick yourself for missing) this Saturday, December 14, at SMooCH, a concert benefiting uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Get your tickets here… it’s for a great cause and you will not be sorry!
