The dancer, actress, and composer Keeley Forsyth released her debut album at age 40, after almost half a lifetime spent acting in Saturday night soaps, children's television, and most recently, a Marvel film (she played "Mottled Prisoner" in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy). In 2017, Forsyth experienced a physical and psychological malaise so intense that it resulted in the temporary paralysis of her tongue. Her turn to music--that cooing thing we recognize in our mother's bellies long before we understand speech--makes a certain therapeutic sense.
