“Michael Higgins, the lead guitarist and vocalist for The Forum, was looking for fellow artists to play music with. After sending out a Gainesville Craigslist ad, Higgins met his bandmates Jacob Farrell and Nick Wheeler in late 2015. The Forum came to fruition soon after. Their music can be described as indie-rock which incorporates modern pop elements with introspective lyricism.
The members of The Forum realize there’s an over-thinker in us all. They have gathered a sizable following of online supporters across their social platforms, keeping an open inbox on all their profiles in order to communicate directly with the people who confide their stories, unspoken feelings, and worries in them. Many do not have the luxury of a safe outlet for these very personal feelings, and The Forum aims to change that.”
