Allen Foster is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, whose work has been embraced by respected artists and applauded by loyal fans across multiple genres.
His music is grounded in the deep roots of country and rock, and his songs are already known for their ability to stir hearts and rattle souls across generations. As a professional musician, he’s a self-proclaimed late-bloomer, but truth be told, his musical work is the product of a long-simmering passion He’s already received recognition that’s thrown him into the spotlight from the Northeast to Nashville. Foster is motivated by the ideals and events of everyday life in America, and one of his greatest motivations is celebrating and supporting his peers: The men and women who work in the logging industry and risk their lives day after day to supply the world with forest products. Logging, like music, has connections to nearly every part of life, but for Foster, it IS a way of life -- there is no separation between the two. “He has a pure, no-nonsense attitude about music, logging, and genuine hard work,” said Paula Hersom, who is Foster’s partner in life and business (and a longtime professional in the music industry). “It’s great to see him embrace this part of his life. It’s always been about long days and long nights, but now he gets to share the sounds that come from it -- from working within the rhythms that are born in the woods of Maine.”
