Jonathan Foster

Trapped somewhere between a hippie and cowboy, singer-songwriter Jonathan Foster brings a roots blend of Americana music as a recording and performing artist. His 2013 album "Sabbatical" (produced by Foster & Bruce Turgon) features songs that explore the human experience from travel, love, humor, and disappointment. This marked his debut studio effort, and is accompanied by outstanding players including long-time collaborator Ron Gillette (guitar), Morgan Hannaford (upright bass), Tracy Manuel (percussion), and guest appearances by Torri Pratt (vocals), Jim Dyar (vocals), Martha Boyle (fiddle), Mark McAbee (vocals). His brand new full length album "Help Me Run" (May 5, 2015 Miracle Mile Records), also co-produced by Turgon & Foster, continues to showcase Jonathan's artistic taste in music and songwriting where the land, highway and people meet in vibrato. This project again features the musical and vocal complements of Morgan Hannaford (bass & mando), Tracy Manuel (percussion & vocals), and Ron Gillette (guitars) with special guests Katrina Ericson (vocals), Jim Dyar (guitar & vocals), Torri Pratt (vocals), Joe Misztal (drums), and Susie Foster (fiddle). Both projects were recorded, mixed and mastered at After Hours Recorders in Redding, CA.

Based out of Northern California and Inspired by other singer-songwriters including John Prine, John Hiatt, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, James McMurtry, Todd Snider, Hayes Carll, Darrell Scott, Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, and Warren Zevon, Jonathan is a motivated, independent, do it yourself artist who revels in getting out and engaging listeners with his tunes. Foster grew up in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State and has spent the latter half of his life travelling the world and developing his songwriting and passion for music. He is also a founding artist of the new independent record label Miracle Mile Records.
