We're delighted to welcome Josephine Foster to The Lamplight Club at Regather.

Josephine Foster is a modern American folk singer-songwriter and musician from Colorado. As an adolescent she worked as a funeral and wedding singer, and aspired to become an opera singer. Several years later she abandoned the idea and began to record demos of her songs, resulting in the early recordings There are Eyes Above (2000), an album of ukulele accompanied songs strongly influenced by Tin Pan Alley, and a short album of children's songs, Little Life (2001). For several years she worked as a singing teacher in Chicago, recording and performing with a variety of musical acts on the side including Born Heller, a duo with free jazz-bassist Jason Ajemian, and The Childrens Hour a pop band formed with songwriter Andrew Bar.

In 2004 joined by her occasional backing band The Supposed (Brian Goodman on guitar and Rusty Peterson on drums) Josephine released an album of psychedelic rock called 'All the Leaves Are Gone' which has drawn comparison to Patti Smith and Jefferson Airplane. The songs on her first solo studio album 'Hazel Eyes, I Will Lead You' (2005) evoke early American folk and blues forms of the early 20th century. 'A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' released in 2006, features unorthodox interpretations of 19th century German art-songs. Her third solo album 'This Coming Gladness' was released in 2008. 'Graphic as a Star' was released in 2010 and the mesmerising 'Blood Rushing' was released in September 2012. Josephine released two albums in 2013, 'Little Life' in March and the beautiful 'I'm A Dreamer' was released in November 2013. 2015 saw the re-release of 'Anda Jaleo' and 'Perlas', two Spanish language albums in collaboration with longtime collaborator Victor Herrero and his band. New album 'No More Lamps' In The Morning' will be released on Fire in February 2016.
