Future of Forestry is an indie rock band from San Diego, California led by multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer Eric Owyoung. The name comes from a poem by C.S. Lewis, "The Future of Forestry". The band started in 2006 and released its self-titled debut EP in 2006 under Credential Recordings (EMI). Their first full-length album, Twilight, appeared in 2007, but for the next several years, Owyoung and his collaborators focused on a series of EPs, the "Travel" series, with three volumes released between 2009 and 2010. Another EP series, "Advent", devoted to Christmas-themed music, debuted in 2008, with additional installments appearing in 2010 and 2013. In 2011, the "Travel" series was collected on a single album, "The Complete Travel Series", while the same year, the group issued another compilation, "A Film and TV Collection", a limited-edition sampler of music Owyoung created for visual media. For the 2012 album "Young Man Follow", Owyoung launched his own label, Sound Swan Records; he also opened his own studio, Utopia Road Studios, where he worked on Future of Forestry projects as well as recording and mixing work for other artists. The following years yielded a 2014 release of the "Piano & Strings Sessions", an EP of rearranged Future of Forestry songs orchestrated for piano, strings, and vocals only. In April 2015 an acoustic duet album called "Pages" was released as a surprise to fans on Future of Forestry's website and on iTunes.
