Feral Foster has been gigging in New York, across the country and in Europe for the past 10 years, capturing the imagination and attention of listeners with his impassioned singing and powerful songwriting. Foster draws from the deep wellspring of early blues, country, and jazz to tell contemporary, human stories, making for music that feels wellworn and strikingly fresh at the same time. He has become wellknown in the roots music scene for establishing, curating, and performing at Jalopy’s weekly Wednesday “Roots n’ Ruckus” review, which has become a premiere showcase for new and established talent. His new, eponymous record of all original material recruits a host of talented musicians, including Jay Sanford (Jessy Carolina & The Hot Mess), Ernie Vega, and Wyndham Baird. Following on his successful Kickstarter campaign in support of the record, Foster is now touring the east coast, with a more extensive tour planned for the fall.
