Making his own American dream, songwriter Jonathan Foster brings a roots blend of Folk-Americana music as a recording and performing artist. He is known for his soulful vocals, acoustic guitar and harmonica, passionate delivery, and off the beaten path introspective lyrics. In June 2021, he is due to release his 5th independent studio album, The Dark & the Light, the follow up from his 2019, release of his latest album Wildlife (Miracle Mile Records/After Hours Recorders) featuring Bruce Turgon (Foreigner, Lou Gramm, Black Sheep) on bass guitar, Morgan Hannaford (Honeybee, Across The Grain, Muletown) on pedal steel guitar and dobro, and National Fiddle Hall of Fame inductee Scott Joss (Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam). Wildlife includes the ear worm songs Louise, California Golden, and a rollicking cover of Bob Dylan’s Girl from the North Country. Foster has spent much of his life traveling, songwriting, and touring venues across the U.S. with his roots born in the rural Adirondack Mountains of New York to the second half of his life in Northern California. In his music and songwriting you’ll hear traces of his upbringing, love of the outdoors, his songwriting heroes, geographic meanderings, and the character’s he’s met in between.
