L.A. Foster refined his gift for songwriting among the sheep, chickens and oak trees of a farm in remote Warwickshire.
Inspired by the peculiarly English sensibilities of artists like Nick Drake, Coil, Talk Talk and Robert Wyatt, the early 8-track tape experiments of 'Sketches for Pale Sunday' and “Orchids” introduced a rich sonic landscape, characterised by eerie impressions of village life and wide-eyed spiritual yearning.
Following a series of lost years as an expat in Saigon, Tokyo and Lisbon, Foster joined sister Elise, a classically-trained cellist and violinist. Over rainy, windswept afternoons, the duo composed the arrangements for magical debut album, 'The Long Transition', which was soon followed by an EP of haunting and spare ballads, 'In Photographs ("Anxiety is Love's Greatest Killer")'.
Now living in Sheffield, Yorkshire, Foster is busking, writing, and performing solo shows in the local area in anticipation of a planned DIY bicycle tour. He is also on the lookout for driven, radically-minded band members to help bring his forthcoming album, 'Private Life', to fruition in pubs, clubs and living rooms across the U.K.
