"One of the questions that people ask me a lot is, 'Oh, you're a musician? What kind of music do you play?'" says Forsyth. "And there was a time when I had a really easy answer for that: 'I play blues.' Or with the Asylum Street Spankers, it was 'We play acoustic music.' Or I'd say, 'I'm a songwriter.' But all those labels really don't communicate anything specific at all, so they're really not useful. I wish I knew what to call it, but it's not a simple question, because there's all these elements of blues and jazz and reggae and funk and folk in it. I guess all of it sounds like American music - but it's American music simply because this is where I am and this is what I listen to."
