Album Notes
Independent record label, Miracle Mile Records (MMR) is proud to announce the July 4, 2017 release of “Green Eyed Bird”, a stellar, 12-song folk-rock studio album by singer-songwriter Jonathan Foster. This marks Foster’s 6th full length recording project and 3rd studio album with Bruce Turgon (Foreigner, Lou Gramm, Black Sheep) at After Hours Recorders in Redding, California.

Green Eyed Bird includes Foster’s most introspective work to date and showcases his evolution as an independent artist with long-time comrades Morgan Hannaford (multi-instruments) and Joe Misztal on drums with several very special guest appearances. The first single, Sunrise Letdown leads off the project, a catchy and simple tale of growing up and going away when summer ends. Additionally, co-writes with Hannaford (Honeybee, Muletown, Jim Dyar) include the rollicking folklore noir about dragonfly’s (The Devil’s Darner), a classic alt-country breakup song (Fence Posts), and a sea-shanty ballad (To The Sea), which is also co-written and performed with songwriter Jim Dyar (Muletown, Jim Dyar Band). Also included is the haunting One Line At A Time about Foster's wife’s travels to Sierra Leone fighting the Ebola virus that joins two other subtle protest songs Scotch Pine (Sing With Me) and Letters To The World. Rounding things out is the somewhat auto-biographical rocker Freewheeling American Dream, that explores the “don’t judge a book by its cover” idiom, an upbeat prison break fable, an alt-festive tune, songwriting contest winner Reclamation Town, and the resurrection of a crowd favorite that Foster wrote 16 years ago, Rain In July, complete with a roots orchestra. Pick up your copy of Green Eyed Bird today and see Jonathan somewhere along the American highway!
