Damon Stout & Brian Stout created Celtic Pink Floyd toward the end of September 2010 and have had the distinct pleasure of working with a variety of talented producers and musicians throughout the CPF experience.
Accumulating a few Emmys® along the way, the Stout brothers started in music early on beginning with violin lessons around 3 years old, then piano, then to various brass and stringed instruments. CPF, as their most recent project, has met with favorable reviews and has spawned a mass of fans worldwide. Production info: www.StoutheartEntertainment.com

Forrest Robinson Born in 1970 in Memphis, TN, Forrest Robinson was raised in a musical family, in a music town. Citing Gospel, Blues, Funk, and Rhythm & Blues, as his earliest musical influences, he discovered he had an intense love for Hard Rock and Heavy Metal at age 12. At 15 years old, he was inspired to become a jazz musician after first hearing Quincy Jones’s version of “Killer Joe” years before, and then Sting’s debut solo record: “The Dream Of The Blue Turtles”. At 16 years old, Forrest’s deep interest in World Music began, after first hearing the voices and music of various regions of West Africa. At 19 years old, his love for Celtic music began and has only grown ever since. It was love at first listen. A few artists Forrest has performed with are TLC, Arrested Development, Angelique Kidjo, Utada Hikaru, and India.Arie, with whom his work has garnered 2 Grammy Awards, and 9 Grammy Nominations. He also works with Delta Deep, an “extreme blues” collaboration featuring Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen, and Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert Deleo. Forrest is very excited to explore this wonderful new music chapter with Brian and Damon Stout, and longtime friend Ken O’Malley, as Celtic Pink Floyd
