Dana Forrest is Cyren's sassy lead singer. She started singing in middle school when she auditioned for a performing arts school in Brooklyn, NY and has been singing ever since. Her family is full of musicians and she's got an eclectic background, but rockin' in a band and having fun with the audience are her favorite things to do. She loves powerful singers from Pat Benatar to Pink!
Scott Forrest has been playing guitar for over 40 years. He spent his formative years in L.A. and has shared the stage with such artists as Greg Allman, Train, The Spin Doctors, Roger McGuinn and many more. He has performed in a variety of bands ranging from alternative to folk and everything in between.
Jen started singing and playing piano at a young age and is happiest making music with other people! Jen’s musical experiences stem from her North Carolina roots and influences include groups with tight, complex vocal harmonies. Jen loves to create music in a variety of genres – from classic rock to jazz to folk - and is thrilled to make music with Cyren.
Cyren's main back bone and driving the beat all night is Bill. He has been a percussionist since he was 11. His inspirations include Stewart Copeland (Police), Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) and Animal (Sesame Street). Bill’s experience consists of: drum corps, orchestra, marching band, Polynesian, country, pop and rock. His favorite type of music is anything with a beat.
Chris (AKA “Animal”) began playing music by ear at the age of 6. His early influences were Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and the Beatles. A few years later Chris would expand his knowledge enrolling in formal music training. By the age of 17, Chris was playing guitar and bass professionally in bands and sessions throughout the New York and New Jersey area. Chris has had the pleasure to share the stage and studio with many wonderful artists and musicians over the years. He brings the energy and experience from playing 80’s hard rock clubs to wedding dance bands.
