When Colorado-born singer-songwriter Josephine Foster woke up one morning to a cascade of pain that unfolded into a persistent clatter of ringing and other noises in her ears, she eventually felt “possessed, like with a demon.” Playing and making music was out of the question, although she found she was able to hum and chant and create vibrational sounding. Through her healing journey, which is generously shared here, she was unable to tour—unable, really, to connect to the gift of music—the very thing that makes her feel most alive. But she found the opportunity in that, and began connecting with other aspects of herself and humanity as a whole.
Josephine Foster is a songwriter, performer and composer from Colorado, whose “music plays games with our ideas of time and space” says The Guardian. The Nashville Scene describes her work a ”fusion of art song and American folk music” and the former opera student is “known to breathe new life into archaic forms, embodying the cultural archaeology of Harry Smith’s old weird America, and has lent her characteristic warbling mezzo-soprano and interpretive wit to over two decades of recordings” writes Blank Forms.
