Feral Foster is a songwriter and performer born and based in New York City. His songs are anomalies: each one a distinct, packaged vignette, tenderly crafted and polished but spilling over the edges to anyone that will listen. They are tiny, intimate stories that linger in the room. A gifted writer and performer, he executes his songs with a veracity that is wildly moving and refreshing. I’ve seen entire audiences captivated by him, I’ve seen grown men reduced to tears, and I’ve seen newborns silenced by his thunderous stage presence.
