It’s hard to imaging how a lumberjack-sized, redheaded saxophone player who melds jazz, reggae, and rock with whip-smart rhymes rivaling any in hip hop could go unnoticed, but somehow it seems the music world has yet to truly discover Forrest Day. Ever since the Bay-area artist blew me away with a performance at the Whisky, I’ve been a huge fan, and the release of his debut full length on October 11th just further reinforced what I already knew: this is an artist worth noticing.

Check out Day’s video for the track “Sleepwalk” off the new album below, and if you like what you hear, head over to iTunes to pick up the whole album.
