Forlorn Memories is the debut album of Canadian artist Chris Tenz. The album
that is full of emotion, lovingly crafted mostly with acoustic instruments,
over a long period of time. The project faced a major setback due to a laptop
theft, but Chris was determined and dedicated enough to continue the album,
regardless of all the frustration caused by the loss of valuable work. All this,
so you could enjoy this delicate album of immensely peaceful guitar and
piano songs. Few words from the artist himself:

“Forlorn Memories is designed to be just that, the re-capturing of memories
and associated moods through wordless sound. The album is designed to tell
a story through emotion, in chronological order. Using old tastes, smells,
sounds, and sights, I would attempt to bring myself into the mindset of
various key moments that influenced me in some way, and attempt to
create those feelings again with the use of audio.”
