      Marcus Foster

      Born and raised in southwest London, from a very early age Marcus Foster began to explore and appreciate a wide range of musical genres. Foster´s childhood and teenage years might seem to offer a few clues as to the wide source of narratives that converge in his music. His poignant voice and the litany of his biographical landmarks are all combined with a salient feature of his personality; namely , a passionate curiosity for what creativity can conjure in terms of music, art and storytelling. Music and art served not only as a refuge from the everyday, but as interlocutors that would help him to find his own voice and self expression. This is why throughout his songs there is a broad spectrum of echoes and reference to artists as diverse as Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, D´Angelo, Tom Waits, Prince, Otis Reading, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and, more recently, St. Vincent.

      After contributing one song to the first Twilight soundtrack in 2008, his popularity with audiences in the U.S. and Europe developed exponentially, which helped to vindicate his commitment to his craft. By the middle of 2010, Foster had already racked up over a million hits on his MySpace page, while his Twitter account was followed in the tens of thousands. As a testament to his constantly growing demand in the in the U.S., Foster was recently invited to perform on the Jimmy Fallon Show performing with The Roots. What's more, not only has he had multiple tours on both sides of the Atlantic with great success, but he has combined his time on the road with consistent work at the studio. In fact, it is in the interaction with his audiences that he has found a reminder of music´s prime value and a meeting ground where the unexpected takes place. This creative collaboration has left clear marks on his subsequent recordings. Following his first EP Tumble Down, Foster released his critically acclaimed debut album, titled Nameless Path in 2011, which was produced by Ian Grimble (Communion). His music has a timeless quality which, once appreciated, remains in the mind.

      For 2012, Foster releaseda new EP The Last House. The Last House is a concise and exciting journey. Recorded in a barn in Sussex, England, it is his most diverse release to date.
