Following his first EP Tumble Down, Foster released his critically acclaimed debut album, Nameless Path, in 2011. The album was produced by Ian Grimble (Communion). Foster is about to release a 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.
Several years ago musician and naturalist Sean Rowe walked out into the wilderness alone for 24 days. He would come away from the experience with the songs that would eventually comprise his dazzling debut album Magic.

This creative tour de force showcases Rowe’s gifted writing and absolutely astonishing voice. It was recorded live at historic Vox Recording Studios in Los Angeles using only real instruments, and was produced by Woody Jackson.
