China Blue (Darren Forster) is a Kalgoorlie based, blues/pop styled singer/songwriter. His music draws on wide reaching influences, an eclectic style and a troubled personality. With signature ashy vocals and often dark lyrical musings, China Blue habitually combines with his mates and some of WA’s top session musos to form The China Blue Experiment ('TCBE'). TCBE deliver improv heavy, super energised arrangements of TCBE catalogue. Musically, TCBE are going from strength to strength, with their brand new single 'Harlem' already enjoying national airplay with the support of Triple J and having been added to rotation on Double J and ABC local radio nationally (all 53 stations!). There is also a huge follow up release scheduled for the end of May, which has been recorded as part of West Australian Music's ('WAM') 'Sounds of the Goldfields' Compilation.

In the last 12 months, TCBE have played Beerfest Asia, headlined WAM's Wheatbelt touring circuit and were the runner up in Pirate FM's Regional Song of the Year awards. TCBE were finalists in the inaugural Bridgetown Blues Festival's Winter Blues Challenge and Gordon (keys) was nominated in the best keys player category of the 2015 WAM Awards. The band actively tour the east coast of Australia and have a tour of the 'Top End' booked for July through August this year. China Blue regularly perform live, and on radio all around the Australia and Darren recently showcased solo at Kalgoorlie's Sunset at the Soundshell to well over 5000 people. On top of this Darren has just performed two sold out and critically acclaimed shows with London's 'House Gospel Choir' for the closing nights of the Perth International Arts Festival.
