Forever Twelve is a Los Angeles, California based progressive rock band which was founded in the early 90’s by Kenny Hundt and Steve Barberic. The band has had some personnel changes over the years with each new member helping to shape and redefine the sound of what Forever Twelve is today. The latest addition came to the band is drummer Robert Craft, formerly of Mars Hollow, Under the Sun, and others.
The band has played festivals such as Prog West and Baja Prog as well as many Southern California venues.
Tom is a innovative musician, a multi-instrumentalist best known as a member and key contributor to progressive rock band Forever Twelve, based out of Los Angeles, California. Tom’s passion for music was evident from an early age, with his musical journey beginning when he picked up his first guitar at the age of 12. Inspired by the likes of Yes, ELP, Kansas, Genesis, and many others, he immersed himself in the rich tapestry of progressive rock music. He also plays keyboards, bass, and drums. Beyond his work with Forever Twelve, Tom has also collaborated with various artists and contributed to several side projects.
Steve is keyboardist, composer and founding member of Forever Twelve after answering an ad. He began taking music lessons at age 8, and by his teenage years he had become a fan of ELP, Genesis and Yes. He soon started playing in various bands and began writing original music including “The Quest” which later appeared on the debut Forever Twelve album.
John Baker, lead vocalist and lyricist, has received favorable reviews from both international journalists and fans alike for his unique voice – often likened to Jon Anderson (Yes), the late Burke Shelley (Budgie) and most recently Josh Kiszka (Greta Van Fleet) for his melodies and lyrics. Baker’s songs have also been picked up by publishers and performers around the world, including Kristi Yamaguchi. Also a guitarist and bassist, Baker has performed and toured internationally with Mars Hollow, The Little Girls, Christian Love (The Beach Boys), and Harvey Sid Fisher, as well as lead vocalist for progressive rock band 2KX. He has also performed on many other artist’s releases, including Nikki Squire’s “Esquire”. In the music production field, John has worked as composer for commercials, spoken word dramas, and has engineered many songwriter demos for A&M Records. In this capacity, he worked with many musicians and producers, including Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones) and Richie Zito (Elton John, Tina Turner, Heart).
Robert plays drums and percussion, was born in Encino California, and started playing drums at the age of 13, influenced in his early years by Neil Peart (Rush) and John Bonham (Led Zeppelin). He was a founding member of the Los Angeles-based progressive rock band “Under the Sun” and helped shape the sound and style of the material that would end up on their debut self titled album.
Over the years Robert has had the pleasure performing and recording with many Rock & Prog Rock bands including Mars Hollow, Magellan’s Ghost, and many others as well as multiple tribute bands. This is Robert’s debut album with Forever Twelve.
