"Liberty is a wise and intelligent woman who gives from the heart. She can help change lives ... the depth and knowledge which emanate from her caring soul have recharged my emotional batteries so many times.
"She is a gifted spiritual individual unlike any other person. The world needs Liberty and her healing words and actions."
- A-G Mallory
At the age of four, I taught myself to play the piano and organ. At nine, I began to take formal lessons, eventually performing on TV, radio, at the Calgary Stampede, and many other venues by the age of 12.
For many years, I was a church organist, pianist and choir director until my spiritual journey led me down other paths.
I love listening to most kinds of music; my interests are varied. I enjoy playing many styles of music, too (especially classical), and love composing instrumental pieces. Well, it's not really "composing." I hit the "record" button and play whatever falls out.
One of those pieces is featured in the video below left. I created this emotional piece of music at one of the most painful times in my life.
"GONNA STEP INTO MY DREAMS"
This is my debut as an untrained singer/songwriter. Thanks to my dear friend, Frank Moffatt, for pushing me so far out of my comfort zone, he shoved me right off the cliff...
Frank and I were out for coffee one evening and he was talking about his days as the manager for his sons, international boy band "The Moffatts" (I still love their music! - Click here for my favourite!).
As he knew I had a musical background, he offered to come over and write a song with me. The song below is what ended up happening.
New Release - "Broken"
by Dave Moffatt and Liberty Forrest
Dave and his three brothers were "The Moffatts" an international boy band in their teens. Brilliantly gifted since they were very little boys, all four are still involved in music in various ways.
Their dad, Frank Moffatt, managed their career (and was the guy who pushed me to write and record my first song, "Gonna Step Into My Dreams").
Click here for one of their songs; you'll probably recognise it by the time they get to the chorus! PS Dave is the one playing the piano.
Dave grew up singing with his three brothers, "The Moffatts." The twins in the group, Bob and Clint, are now singing as "Endless Summer" with Scott and Dave singing independently.
The four are currently producing the first Moffatts album in several years.
