SHOUT OUT TO MIKE FORGETTE AND HIGH TIDE GLASS COMPANY!

Mike Forgette and Jonathan Moody

Thanks so much to Mike Forgette for taking the time to show me around the shop he co-owns with Jonathan Moody, High Tide Glass Co. The store was bustling and is cockablock full of cannabis related products including one-of-a-kind handblown art glass pipes, T-shirts, tinctures, salves, and art by local artists.

Sunday marked the one year anniversary of forming the company and as of September, Mike and Jonathan have been at their current location on Center Street. This month they began a a series of music events at the shop, the “4:20 Sessions” with Crooked Coast. Like High Tide Class Co. on Facebook and you can find out who their next guest artist is, scheduled for February 11th.

Mike Forgette and Ross Carlson

Mike, Connor Elston, and Ross

Located at 3 Center Street, up off Main Street around the corner from Passports, High Tide glass is in good company. Danielle Glantz’s Pastaio Via Corta is next door, K-9 Cuts across the street, and just a few doors up and around the corner is Sandpiper Bakery (try their twice-baked almond croissants, the absolute best around!)

#greasegang MIKE FORGETTE: A MAN OF MANY TALENTS

Check out this first glimpse of Mike Forgette’s band Over the Bridge. Their debut EP “Something in the Water” will be released on July 16th.

“You’ve been following the boys of Over The Bridge for over a year now. You’ve seen them in action, you’ve helped them earn the chance to open for big names like Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, perform stages such as New Hampshire Hempfest & Freedom Rally, and you’ve seen their posts and pictures documenting their progress, hard work and dedication to carefully crafting their original tunes. The time has come to finally share their music with the world for all to hear!” Read more here

MIKE FORGETTE #FORTHEMUSIC FULL LENGTH VIDEO LIVE NOW!

Mike writes,

“This release is about more than just the video. It is a celebration of the first track we took from an idea in my head, and with months of hard work and dedication, we created something real you can listen to and now watch. From producing the beat, writing and recording this track myself with the help of Chris Lane using our own equipment, taking it to Jon Glasser who helped shape it by editing and mixing the audio, and then Moon Rock Sound for mastering. Then I came up with the idea for the video and took a chance and brought in Dee Lane to work on his first film project. We spent hours recording vocals and re-working the beat, I must have written a million words that didn’t make sense before these heart felt lyrics came out. If you know me you know this music journey has been a long and windy road with many bumps and bruises along the way. I’ve never quit, I’ve never given up, and I don’t think I ever will. We’ve come a long way from recording in Chris’s basement and the days my songs were about fake bullshit I thought you wanted to hear. We still have a longer way to go, but to see how far we’ve progressed both as men and artists with the support that all of you have given me over these years has kept me going. I work a full time office job during the week, I pay an absurd amount of money to bills, student loans ect,I live in a basement studio apartment with my girlfirend, I know what its like to have a messed up family, to be stressed out, to question what your purpose is and to ask yourself every day what’s the point? I have dedicated my life to this art form, when its all said and done I will be able to walk away and say I gave it everything I had. Years down the road when they ask me why, I’ll say I did it all… “For The Music”.

MIKE FORGETTE’S TRAILER “FOR THE MUSIC!”

Congratulations and this is fantastic! We’re looking forward to the full length video!

Mike writes, “The full video and song will be released on Friday, April 29th. The entire video was shot in Gloucester, and the music was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered locally as well.”
