Album Review

Foster, Josephine – ?A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” – [Locust Music]

Numa   6/8/2006   A Library, CD

Operatic Fusion Folk. Josephine Foster goes classical with this 2006 release from Locust Music. Josephine takes on Schubert, Brahms, Schumann and others with her lilting voice and graceful guitar work. There is quite a range of feelings used to cover this: Rocking Chair Squeaking on the Front Porch at Dusk with a Slide Guitar to at times evoking a Choir of Catholic German Boys Singing to a Stoic Sanctuary. Josephine’s vocals are the focus of the album with an acoustic guitar up in the mix and an electric guitar down in the mix for the most part. Usually working solo, Josephine has recorded with Jason Ajemian as Born Heller and put out an album with The Supposed. I couldn’t help thinking back to the Shirley Collins release True False Lovers. — Numa
