Forget Cassettes

Forget Cassettes is an alternative rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2001. Fronted by Beth Cameron, formerly of Fair Verona and the only constant member of the group, Forget Cassettes have released three albums to date: Instruments of Action (2003), Salt (2006) and O Cursa (2013). The first two were released on the Nashville-based Theory 8 Records label. Salt has been re-released in Europe by Tangled Up! Recordings in March 2007.

The band has toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe, most notably with …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead (whose second percussionist, Doni Schroader, has played with Cameron in both Fair Verona and Forget Cassettes).

Forget Cassettes started life as a two-piece, but when Schroader quit to join ...Trail of Dead on a full-time basis, Cameron temporarily split the group altogether. After a few months' break from the music business, she recruited Aaron Ford and Jay Leo Phillips, then involved with Apollo Up!, in 2005 — both of whom are noted local musicians in Nashville — and began work on Forget Cassettes' second record. Following its release in 2006, Schroader returned to play with the band sporadically, most notably on its tour of Europe in February and March 2007.

Cameron and Scroader reunited in 2008 under the name Eliza the Arrow.

A third Forget Cassettes album, titled O Cursa is the band's first to not predominately feature live drums and guitar.
