|John Allred at the Velour|
Allred is a multi-talented musician. As I said to a friend of mine, "He can play! Guitar, harmonica, and tambourine!" Allred's voice is sometimes angelic, and sometimes pleasantly strained like the devil's vocal chords. At times it reminds me of Jason Wade's from Lifehouse, but at other times it's so unique I can't believe I would make such a comparison. I've since attended two of Allred's shows (and plan on attending many, many more), most recently this past Friday night in Provo.
You can find Forest Eyes on Facebook under Forest Eyes or Allred, and purchase their music on iTunes. You can find out more about John Allred on his website, including upcoming tour dates. If you're in Northern Utah, a trip to the Urban Lounge in Salt Lake City on May 28th will be well worth your time to see Forest Eyes perform.
