"Between the idea and the reality,
Between the motion and the Act,
Falls the shadow..."
- T.S. Eliot
While attending college with plans to pursue a career in Audio Engineering, David Berry (vocals,guitar) quickly realized that working on other
peoples music would not be as fulfilling as creating his own. As a result, Forget Me Knots was conceived....
Looking for new directions, David decided to evolve the sound of Forget Me Knots by adding live instruments to the mix. In February of 2007,
he started auditioning musicians and met guitarist Brandon Scott. Brandon's innovative and versatile guitar playing complemented David's creative
vision and his esoteric writing brought a more experimental sound to the music. They met bassist Daniel Wyatt and knew right away he was the
perfect fit. Daniel's creative approach to the bass offers and edgy, elemental sound, while his background in engineering helped to expand
the technological front. Despite the electronic nature of the music and the fact that the majority of bands that utilize computers and sythesizers
so heavily would often turn to a 'drummer in a box', David felt that the unique sounds of Forget Me Knots needed a live drummer.
Enter Desmond Lee. Desmond's fusion of electronic and traditional drums and intense dedication was the last piece of the
puzzle that was missing. Forget Me Knots was completed.
Forget Me Knots is instantly reminiscent of early industrial rock, at times heavy and dark as "Nuclear Sky" to the night and day of "Wake Up"
and the slow descent into "Retrograde". Once you hear the hauntingly melodic guitar riffs blended over the surge of
industrial sounds, Forget Me Knots, as their name suggests, are not easily forgotten...
