Tori Forsyth unleashes her inner rockstar with her WILD new single ‘Be Here,’ which is released today.
Produced by Shane Nicholson, it’s her first new musical offering since the release her critically acclaimed debut album, Dawn of the Dark in 2018.
Based on her own experiences of dealing with a partner’s addiction, ‘Be Here’ is real, raw and honest confessional rock.
“Recording this song was one of the smoothest recording sessions I’ve ever done,” says Forsyth.
“I’ve never been so inspired coming away from the studio.”
The minimalist music video is split between white and red rooms.
Stylish, slick and full of energy, it includes props of a snake and stairs, symbolizing change and new direction for the Hunter Valley artist.
“I wanted it to be manic, lots of light and shade and I wanted symbolism through two colours,” she says.

Over the years, Forsyth has been strongly influenced by provocative front-women and female-fronted bands such as Hole, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey.
She’s also been inspired by bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden and Audioslave.
These influences most certainly come to the fore with this new song.
Tori Forsyth is celebrating the release of ‘Be Here’ with an east coast tour this spring.
