Guy Forsyth & Jeska Bailey: “Daddy’s Listening”

Posted by on Jul 25, 2019

Die-hard Austin music lovers will recognize the name Guy Forsyth instantly. His live sets have been a mainstay since the mid-’90s and after breaking out he’s had no trouble opening for legends likes of B.B. King, Ray Charles and Dr. John. Guy met his partner in marriage and songwriting Jeska Bailey at her own club in San Angelo, and they’ve finally decided to put their chemistry on the record.

Tomorrow they release their first-ever collaborative full-length, Conspirators, featuring seven robust new tunes and five fitting covers that flesh out everything from folk, roots, soul, rock, blues and even cabaret. These delicate but potent musical foils will leave you beggin’ for more, and you can see them together next Tuesday at the Saxon Pub. Get those ears perked up early with one of the album’s boldest originals, “Daddy’s Listening”!
