John Forté

John Forté is a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and producer from Brooklyn, New York best known for his work with the multi-platinum group, The Fugees. In addition to producing and co-writing tracks for The Fugees' The Score, Forté released two solo albums, PolySci (Columbia; 1998) and I, John (Transparent; 2002), which featured guest appearances by Herbie Hancock, Esthero and Tricky, and included a duet with Carly Simon. Forté is currently working on his new album, Water Light Sound (due out in Spring 2010), as well as scoring, producing, touring and writing his memoir for Simon & Schuster. Through song and performance, Forté hopes to shed light on the issues facing at-risk youth and the environment, especially as it relates to the water crisis.

"The story of a man who’s been devastated by his punishment but has emerged stronger… Forté details his unlikely path to inspiration under the most harrowing of circumstances."
