Show Info

Born and raised in southwest London, from a very early age Marcus Foster began to explore and appreciate a wide range of musical genres. Foster´s childhood and teenage years might seem to offer a few clues as to the wide source of narratives that converge in his music. His poignant voice and the litany of his biographical landmarks are all combined with a salient feature of his personality; namely, a passionate curiosity for what creativity can conjure in terms of music, art and storytelling. Music and art served not only as a refuge from the everyday, but as interlocutors that would help him to find his own voice and self expression. This is why throughout his songs there is a broad spectrum of echoes and reference to artists as diverse as Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, D´Angelo, Tom Waits, Prince, Otis Reading, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and, more recently, St. Vincent. At first sight it might seem counterintuitive to try to render a coherent whole out of such a diverse array of influences. Yet a key drive behind Marcus´ work is a desire, not only to avoid the comfort zone of recreating old sounds, but to challenge himself in such a way that he can produce music and stories that, whilst in debt to the past, have been yet unheard. Kessler favorites Seryn make their return for the show, and solo artist Julia Sinclair gets the evening kicked off at 8 pm
