In 2002, Forest Sun performed at the Strawberry Music Festival, and Shoreline Amphitheatre, opening for Bonnie Raitt and Lyle Lovett.

In 2008, prompted by his mother's battle with cancer, Forest Sun began a benefit project to support people with cancer and their families by hosting benefit concerts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which led to producing compilation albums called Songs for Laura.

So Nice and Harlequin Goodnight, featuring songs with ALO and Sean Hayes, were issued in 2008. The following year, Forest Sun added the musical collaboration of Ingrid Serban and the two began to tour as a duo.

Forest Sun released his first children's album, Just for Fun (2010), which was a collection of original songs and Americana classics such as "You Are My Sunshine," and "Polly Wolly Doodle". In 2012, Forest Sun released Just Begun.
