Future Of Forestry is an indie rock band from San Diego, California led by multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer Eric Owyoung. The name comes from a poem by C.S. Lewis entitled "The Future Of Forestry."
The band started in 2006 and released its self-titled debut EP in 2006 under Credential Recordings (EMI). Their first full-length album, Twilight, appeared in 2007, but for the next several years, Owyoung and his collaborators focused on a series of EPs, the Travel series, with three volumes released between 2009 and 2010. Another EP series, Advent, devoted to Christmas-themed music, debuted in 2008, with additional installments appearing in 2010 and 2013. In 2011, the Travel series was collected on a single album, The Complete Travel Series, while the same year, the group issued another compilation, A Film And TV Collection, a limited-edition sampler of music Owyoung created for visual media.
For the 2012 album Young Man Follow, Owyoung launched his own label, Sound Swan Records; he also opened his own studio, Utopia Road Studios, where he worked on Future Of Forestry projects as well as recording and mixing work for other artists. The following years yielded a 2014 release of the Piano & Strings Sessions, an EP of rearranged Future Of Forestry songs orchestrated for piano, strings, and vocals only. In April 2015, an acoustic duet album called Pages was released as a surprise to fans on Future Of Forestry's website and on iTunes.

I love this sound! It's nice to find out that a band is willing to share their opinion on the industrialization of our world. Yes, it's not about saving trees but about saving lives and hearts.:)
