"Forty Acres as a band just started to form in February of 2006. Forty Acres as a concept started about a year ago while I was touring playing drums for a successful singer/songwriter" says frontman/singer/songwriter John Allen. "I realized that banging on basically a non-melodic instrument was only gonna allow me to put my stamp on his/our music so far. So, I wrote a bunch of songs, played all the instruments except for a few and made a video that WHFS saw and then DEMANDED I form a band so I could play their legendary WHFS-Tival in May of 06!!!" Needless to say John put the band together.
