Forrest Leder has a lifetime love of song, and is excited to work as a lyricist with OBP Commissions to create new, original music.
Forrest has appeared in over 15 theatre productions, as well as appearing in the nationally-televised stage production of My Grandpa’s Fiddle, on PBS. He’s performed in 47 states, and 7 other countries. You may have seen him in Anything Goes as Moonface Martin, Pirates of Penzance as the Sergeant of the Police, Urinetown as Senator Fipp, and Gianni Schicchi as Marco, to name just a few.
DnD has always been a part of Forrest’s life. DMing since he was 12, he has recently been featured on Mythguided: Forgotten Lore, as a main cast player, and also one of the GMs and producers for their 2020 4-part holiday-themed mini-series. In January he will be a guest GM for The CritShow’s Twitch series, ‘The Omniverse Chronicles,’ leading the cast in a twisted, 8 episode game of Ghostbusters: International RPG.
Forrest studied Vocal Performance at The University of Montana, graduating with a Bachelor of Music: Performance, and a Bachelor of Music Education. He grew up in Western Montana, and is now in the Seattle area, where he lives with his wife, Triss, and their 2 children, all of whom keep him on his toes. During the school year, Forrest teaches Music to young children, including his own, and also works as the Artistic Director of YOUTHSounds NW, a non-profit, community youth choir.
