Review Fix Exclusive: LA Foster Talks ‘Honestly’ And More

Review Fix chats with singer/songwriter LA Foster, who discusses her inspirations and goals for 2019, as well as her new single, “Honestly.”

Review Fix: How did you get involved in music?

LA Foster: I started off as a DJ and a radio host – I was a real archivist when it came to music.  I was obsessed with the library and finding the roots and the cultural and social context of where the music came from.

Review Fix: What’s your creative process like?

Foster: My creative process changes all the time but most recently I am working with musician and producer Stephen Ramsay (Young Galaxy) which helps focus my process.  I travel a lot so when I am on my own a lot of my creative process comes from my head and me sketching ideas on my audio notes and then creating from those seeds.

Review Fix: What inspires you?

Foster: Difference.  Understanding.  Art.  Nature.  Love.

Review Fix: What makes “Honestly” a special track?

Foster: It was written as a poem on my first trip to Chile after falling in love with the wrong guy in Argentina.  The first lines “I travel to the ocean to cry, climb a mountain just to know that I was alive”…speaks to the healing nature of the environment of Chile and me trying to heal myself with that powerful environment.

Review Fix: How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard you?

Foster: Electronic RnB with pop tinged hues.

Review Fix: How are your live shows different from your studio work?

Foster: I usually experiment with new tracks on stage so you can always expect to hear something you have never heard recorded.  I also really believe in that exchange in energy with a live show…that is what drives me as a musician and a singer – to have that moment together.  

Review Fix: What are your goals for 2019?

Foster: To keep releasing new music with Stephen Ramsay and some tracks I have waiting with musician and producer Roman (Persona, Roman & Castro) from Santiago, Chile.  

Review Fix: What’s next?

Foster: Playing a show put on by the Pop Montreal festival in Montreal on March 30t with Cyber and Janetter King at La Vitrola.
