Announcing the new album Roadside Attraction by singer-songwriter Jonathan Foster. His 6th full-length, independent studio release is a snapshot of imagery presented through music and lyrics, primarily inspired by the past two years of touring solo across the continental United States. Accessible songs with in-focus hooks include the upbeat The Mountain Echo (reflection on primary school) and Lander Spring (the west), to thought provoking The Anchor (self-doubt) and The Warm Light (near death experience), to the laid back Cottonwood Vines (wine), the reckless Americana Insomnia (road tales), to the moody When You Leave (southwest), The Change (climate disruption), Roadside Table (season’s greetings) and his frame on traditional tune The Cuckoo (Appalachian). Take the exit, peak through the viewfinder, hear the depth of field, and enjoy the new long-player Roadside Attraction by Jonathan Foster.
