Jen Foster is an award-winning singer/songwriter who regularly sells out shows across the country. Her special bond with her fans creates a captive audience anxious to hear her stories and take in her unique sense of humor. Whether she’s singing about the time her lover moved out and took everything she owned in her AAA radio favorite, "Taking Bob Dylan," or about our jaded American culture in "Closer to Nowhere," she always has something genuine & meaningful to say. The video for “Closer To Nowhere” went to #1 on the LOGO Channel and stayed in their Top 10 list for 6 months as well as being a featured song on MTV’s “The Hills.”
Foster is a First Prize winner in the Pop division of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and a First Prize recipient in the Great American Songwriting Contest’s Pop division. Lavendar Magazine called her "One of the most popular and promising singer/songwriters of her generation."
Always independent, Foster has owned her Fosterchild Records label for almost 10 years securing film/TV placements including the theme to the Emmy winning web based soap opera "Venice: The Series." She’s created "The Writer’s Share", to benefit the TJ Martell Foundation for Leukemia, Cancer, and AIDS Research featuring hit songwriters Richard Marx, Keb’ Mo, and Mike Reid among others held yearly at the world-renowned Bluebird Café. Jen has been a keynote speaker at Tin Pan South and the Indiegirl Conference in Knoxville, TN as well as being an artist/writer representative on the very distinguished board at Nashville Songwriters Association International.
