Raw and relatable – that is Jen Foster’s music. She follows her own intuition and style, staying away from current trends. In other words, Foster is her own trend.
You Stayed, Foster’s last album, debuted in 2009. Since then, she released singles, such as “I Just Didn’t Kiss Her” and “Venice Beach.” After taking a one-year hiatus from her career to reprioritize and get back to what was truly important to her, Foster is back with a double album, The White Room Sessions.
Foster’s upcoming album is a culmination of five years of new songs, a few fan favorites reimagined, and a touch of her own heart and soul.
“I think there’s a lot of depth in the songs, but there’s also a strong message of hope and joy. It’s honestly a pretty dynamic collection, both musically and lyrically,” Foster says. “The last five years have been a powerful part of my creative journey, so it’s going to feel cathartic, I think, to share the fruits of that with everyone.”
Over the last five years, she has been going back and forth between Nashville and Los Angeles to write and record in a studio called White Room with her dear friend, and producer, Rich Jacques.
As most independent artists these days, and with the rising costs associated with making and getting music out to the public, Foster opted to launch a pre-order campaign with PledgeMusic.
The PledgeMusic campaign is a fun way for fans to pledge and get their hands on exclusives, such as memorabilia from Foster’s previous tours, photos, videos, downloads of exclusive tracks, like her cover of Journey’s “Faithfully,” and her original song “Secondhand Love.” Pledgers can even spend the day with Foster and have dinner with her at one of her upcoming shows. Her tour begins this fall.
“Community is such a big part of what my music is about, so I’m really excited to get back out there and perform this new music for people,” Foster says. “It’s going to be great to see old friends, and hopefully, make new ones. Bring it, People!”
Foster’s PledgeMusic campaign ends August 16. To see the exclusive details about Jen Foster’s double album, visit her PledgeMusic campaign.
