Chasing The Blues with Tom "The Suit" Forst

By Tom The Suit Forst

Twenty-five years ago, Tom Forst sold his soul to the devil and became a corporate executive. At the height of his career, nine years ago, he reclaimed his soul and quit it all to play the blues. Tom "The Suit" Forst was born. Chasing the Blues Podcast began in 2019 with 50 weekly episodes of Season One - sharing interesting stories of the original bluesmen, the pioneers of the art form, as told through personal interviews with players from around the world: some famous in their own right, recording and touring artists, veteran sidemen, and rising new talent. Season Two picks up where Season One left off, with new special features, contests and giveaways, and as always, featured interviews with blues payers from around the world. Hear their stories, and what inspired them to play the blues, and where they are taking the blues in their own careers for the blues fans of today, and tomorrow to enjoy. Stay tuned for a new episode every week (Now broadcasting every Thursday - Starting April 16, 2020) wherever podcasts are available to stream and download. Chasing the Blues is proudly sponsored by Blues Festival Guide, which Bobby Rush calls the "road map to the blues." Look for them online at www.BluesFestivalGuide.com Chasing the Blues is also sponsored and produced by Factory Underground Studio in Norwalk, CT.
