Editors’ Notes

For his first full-length project in five years, Christian singer/songwriter Eric Owyoung (a.k.a. Future of Forestry) goes for a lush, rhythmically driven sound that’s at once rarified and accessible. Young Man Follow extends the lyrical themes of his Travel EPs with songs that depict spiritual journeys and homecomings. Owyoung’s mellifluent vocals shift easily from the stately croon of “Would You Come Home” to the sweet, ethereal tones of “As It Was.” He varies his production strategies as well, embracing widescreen Simon & Garfunkel–esque pop (“Things We Should Say”) and boisterous Mumford & Sons–like folk (“Love Be Your Mantra”) with equal conviction. Whether the music is intimate or grandiose, the message is consistently positive, both when Owyoung is speaking with the voice of divine compassion (“You”) and offering a hosanna of praise (“Someone”). The sleekly gliding “Chariots” beckons the faithful heavenward with an insistent techno pulse. Young Man Follow tempers its artistic ambition with a humility and generosity of spirit that reaches out to the listener.

Customer Reviews

Slightly Disappointed

I'm going to give this album a fair review. I didn't want to give it 5 stars simply based on how much I appreciate the band and how supremely talented they are. That being said, I felt like they played it safe on this album. There wasn't as much movement or progression on the songs--no surprises, like I felt were on previous albums.

Overall, found the album to be a tad boring. I'd put the Travel Series in my top 10 favorite albums of all time, so maybe my expectations were too high for this release. I appreciate and can see how versatile they are in playing a different sound on this record, but that doesn't mean it's a good thing.

Brand new music

I was searching to see who had new things out. Much to my delight, this just came out. I have all the travel EPs and have enjoyed them all a lot. Again, as in their previous albums, they have a nice mix of varied sounds in their music, which adds a lot of interest. Thank you, Future of Forestry, for more great music to listen to.

Soli De Gloria

This guy never fails to emote the thoughts and yearnings of my own. Moving. Inspiring. Will forever be a fan of whatever FOF puts out!

Love that each album puts out it's own vibe. Each album has it's own continuity. Each album is powerful in it's own right. The same is true here.

Will not disappoint! Support good art!
