Dr. Beaf Fabulous jazz featuring terrific phrasing and common structure themes per track and always returning to that theme after some quality divergence. He's got a newie on the way too. My RSD2017 contribution of sorts. Favorite track: Stevens Street.

"**** - Foster's style is potent and vigorous" - John McBeath, The Weekend Australian.

"An energetic, lyrical pianist with a few stories to tell... an album of wonderful, heartwarming compositions, performed in his distinctive laid-back, seemingly effortless style, and backed by a great band." -


released March 24, 2016

Two Cities is about “home”; that ineffable influence which shapes us but doesn’t impose its limitations. We all seek bigger, more vibrant landscapes and dream of that which is beyond our horizon. This record is a meeting point, where individuals share their city to discover new perspectives of the places we call home.

Two Cities celebrates an ever-shrinking world; from a suburban backyard in Adelaide, travelling through the Colorado Rockies and landing in a recording studio in the East Village, the city in which this music finds its home.

The songs herein capture places in time, coloured and enriched through the cultures and traditions of each musician on this record. Sharing their stories is what takes this art form to a higher place and makes its pursuit so worthy.
