Fragile Forest produces a mix of Progressive Rock, New Age and Ambient instrumentals.

In reality, Fragile Forest is only John S. Hagewood in the studio pushing all the buttons, with the occasional guest drummer or guitarist.

All of the music of Fragile Forest is available on soundclick to listen to (stream) at high-bandwidth (near CD-quality 128k usually). However, the artist respectfully requests that you purchase the singles or albums if you find that you really like the music, and or if want to download them (like to play on your iPod, burn onto a CD to play in your car, etc).
