Forsyth is a composer, singer and actor. Born and raised in Oldham. As an actor she has starred in numerous acclaimed feature films and TV series over the last twenty years, before making her name as a musician.

Her debut album Debris, released on 17 January 2020 on the Leaf Label, to critical acclaim features "minimal arrangements" that feature Forsyth's "elemental voice and an outpouring of candid, haunting lyrics".

The album also features fellow Leaf Label artist and pianist Matthew Bourne.

Speaking to The Guardian in January 2020 Forsyth shared plans to develop a live performance in collaboration with film-makers Iain and Jane Pollard.

Forsyth continues to collaborate with choreographers, visual artist and musicians to maintain a structure of multimedia to her work.

Her second album will be released early 2021 following her EP 'Photograph'.
