British folk on American soil
UK’s Marcus Foster begins his US tour
Marcus Foster is a 23 year old London born musician. He grew up listening to Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Sister Rosetta Tharp, giving him a raw, honest and timeless sound. His songs have been featured in two motion pictures; Let Me Sign, co-written by Bobby Long for the film Twilight (available on iTunes). Make It Easy and I Don’t Mind were included in the road movie, Five Dollars a Day, starring Christopher Walken and Sharon Stone, directed by Nigel Cole. Five Dollars a Day won the Audience Award at the Temecula Film Festival and is scheduled for release in 2010 by Capitol Films.
Marcus begins his tour in San Diego on Thursday, December 3rd and will make his way across the US and parts of Canada. Tickets are $10-$15.
Foster’s self-titled EP (available on iTunes) was released on June 22nd, making its debut at #1 in iTunes’ top album singer/songwriter category. He has recently recorded a track for a compilation album, including other folk artists such as Mumford and Sons, Johnny Flynn and Peggy Sue.
