“Forsythe has mined his own history to forge a unique Northern Honky Tonk Mythos.” – Aaron Jentzen, PGH City Paper (June 17, 2009)

Slim Forsythe hails from the Northern Tier Counties of the Great Keystone State of Pennsylvania.

For 12 years he’s been performing classic country western, mountain gospel, bluegrass and rockabilly music with a variety of bands and musicians at honky tonks, night clubs and other venues. For the last three years, he has appeared on Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney on Groundhog’s Day.

In September 2014, Slim was inducted into America’s Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame.

In addition to his loving renditions of the classics of the Great American Songbook, Slim has written more than 30 original compositions and recorded and released two full-length records: Bury Me Up On That Northern Tier in 2009 and Down On My Knees At Nied’s Hotel Again in 2011. In November 2016, Get Hip Recordings released Slim Forsythe’s Greatest Hits.

Slim’s former lives: attorney, novelist, performance auditor, maker of Zippo lighters and Dresser pipe couplings, warehouseman, oil field roustabout, janitor, life insurance salesman, beer distributor night shift, bookstore clerk, apartment building concierge, house painter, light hauler, saxophone and keyboards, typewriter cleaner, radio show host, and a few other things back in there somewhere ….
