Marcus Foster performs 'I Was Broken' for The Crypt Sessions
Marcus Foster is a very talented young man indeed. Still only 24, he's just earned himself a master's degree in sculpture from the Royal College of Art and has already exhibited at the Saatchi gallery with a hot air ballon fashioned from cold steel. Next weekend he's dj-ing on the main stage at the Wilderness festival. And with his nu-folk singer-songwriter's hat on, he's about to release his first album, Nameless Path, on Communion Records. How he had time to come and play for us at The Crypt Sessions is anyone's guess, but we're extremely glad he did.
Marcus's big musical break came when Let Me Sign, a song he co-wrote with buddy Bobby Long, was recorded by schoolmate Rob Pattinson for the soundtrack of the first Twilight film. But when you hear him play, it's pretty obvious that Marcus would have risen to the surface anyway. A keen student of Tom Waits and Bob Dylan, he is blessed with an exceptionally soulful voice, a poet's handle on the human condition and a range of musical expression to match - from the galloping Stones bluesiness driving album track Shadow Of The City, to the dusty, spaghetti western sprawl of Circle In The Square. He also has friends in all the right places. But as The Independent said, 'Remarkably talented and excitingly different, Foster shows he's worth the celebrity endorsements. And proves he doesn't need them either.'
