On tour, Americana roots songwriter Jonathan Foster performs solo-acoustic with guests at Sidney's Saloon in New Orleans!
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.
June 1, 2021, marks the release his 5th independent studio album, Lantern Shade, the follow up from his 2019, release of his latest album Wildlife (Miracle Mile Records/After Hours Recorders), which features Bruce Turgon (Foreigner, Lou Gramm, Shadow King) 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 earworm 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.
