"Tacoma musician Forest Beutel is a rough looking dude. Many peoples' first impression of him is that he seems like he can beat the shit out of anyone at whatever bar they might have met him at. And he probably can. But anyone who's ever played with him will tell you that he's a big softy with an artist's heart. Beutel is a fixture of Tacoma's bluegrass scene, playing banjo for both Barleywine Revue and punkgrass outfit The Rusty Cleavers. And in September 2014 he released If You Label Me, You Negate Me, his first solo album."
