2018 Blues Hall of Fame inductee Tom Forst, AKA The Suit, is a blues-rock guitarist and singer-songwriter from Hartford, CT. The 67 year old musician is currently in the studio recording a follow up to his 2017 album "On Fire" produced by Grammy Award winner Paul Nelson, who performed with Johnny Winter.
A life-long musician who joined the corporate world, "for a couple of years, to put some food on the table and try to get my kids through college," a job that would become a 25-year career as VP of a major television advertiser. "I loved it, but I always had a plan to go back into music; the day my wife and I paid the last college tuition bill, I gave my notice."
About being called The Suit: "I had started performing again, and I got called up on stage to play with my son's punk rock band. I was still wearing my business suit in those days. People started chanting "Suit Suit Suit!" The name stuck. I've been Tom The Suit Forst ever since."
