Robert Forster & Band
Robert Forster (born 29 June 1957) is an Australian singer-songwriter, best known for his work with songwriting partner Grant McLennan, with whom he co-founded The Go-Betweens.
Forster grew up in Brisbane, Australia attending Brisbane Grammar School. He met McLennan in drama classes at the University of Queensland and, inspired by a mutual love of Bob Dylan and the New York music scene, formed the Go-Betweens.
In addition to his work with the Go-Betweens, he has released five solo albums: Danger in the Past, recorded in Berlin in 1990; Calling from a Country Phone, recorded at Sunshine Studios, Brisbane, in 1993 with members of local pop group Custard; I Had a New York Girlfriend, a collection of cover versions recorded in Melbourne in 1994; Warm Nights, recorded in London in 1996 and produced by Edwyn Collins; and The Evangelist, recorded (all but one track – “A Place to Hide Away”) at Good Luck Studios, London, September – November 2007 with long time collaborators Adele Pickvance and Glenn Thompson.
