Josephine Foster

Josephine Foster is a folk and art song singer/songwriter from Colorado USA.


Her work is that of a maverick dreamer live and on record. She has performed in all variety of houses of sound from basements to opera houses and stables. While not performing alone she collaborates with musicians of all stars and stripes.

Her new double album Faithful Fairy Harmony (released in November 2018) is a cycle of 18 new songs hearkening back to various facets of Foster’s oeuvre (the esoteric balladry of This Coming Gladness, native rhythms of Blood Rushing, somnambulist waltzes of I’m a Dreamer, the Shaker primitivism of Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead you). Accompanying herself on guitar, piano, organ, harp and autoharp, the set also features contributions from Victor Herrero (lead guitars), Gyða Valtýsdóttir (cello), Chris Scruggs (pedal steel), Jon Estes (bass), as well as cameos by members of The Cherry Blossoms and others.
