Eric Owyoung, lead singer and song writer, started the band Something Like Silas in 2000. After playing at Hume Lake for 3 years and planting Flood Church in San Diego, the band signed with Sparrow Records. In 2006 Something Like Silas changed to Future of Forestry and shifted into the Credential Recordings division of EMI. The name "Future of Forestry" is taken from a poem by famed British author C. S. Lewis entitled "The Future of Forestry". On March 31, 2015 Future of Forestry released, without notice and completely by surprise, the hauntingly beautiful folk album Pages.
