Last year, Jim Foster returned to the studio for the first time in several years and the result is the Lone Bird CD, with 13 new tracks that range from rock through blues to ballads. From the opening chords of the lasciviously written “Love Thing” to the final notes of “Spaghetti West”, Lone Bird takes you on a journey from the gritty east side streets of Vancouver over the mysterious western shores of the “Smugglers Coast” and to many other places physical, emotional and spiritual.
A recent review of Lone Bird had this to say:
"Formerly of Fosterchild and One Horse Blue, Foster sings in a plaintive Don Henley style and plays in a bluesy J.J. Cale style. His writing is reminiscent of John Hiatt circa Bring the Family, and it all adds up to a winning concoction of well-crafted tunes, crisply recorded and warmly reminiscent of '70s-era West Coast rock.
