About Forever Growing
With a deep and amazing presence, Forever Growing takes listeners on a great adventure with musical entertainment like they have never experienced before. Fusing the virtuosic techniques of jazz, the dynamics of classical and the energy of rock, Forever Growing (Eugene, OR) performs with an undeniable love and electrifying dedication to their music.
After years of "jazz boot camp" at the University of Oregon, Andrew Becker (23, guitar) Thomas Heritage (22, bass) and Adam Sweet (25, drum set), became frustrated by a growing disconnect between the "jazz" performer and the general audience. The trio has sought to bridge this gap by turning their focus away from traditional jazz and towards mainstream popular music. In the process these young men have honed in on a sound that has brought odd meters and complex forms together with effect driven guitar sounds and mesmerizing grooves.
After learning from and performing with some of the greatest musicians alive today, (Danilo Perez, Ron Miles, Ben Monder, Mark Ferber, Alan Ferber, Gene Bertoncini, Ed Soph, and John Stowell to name a few), Forever Growing continues to forge their own path in the realm of modern fusion.Map & Directions
