Alex Henry Foster

Music / Rock, Indie / Canada

Presented by: Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA)

He's the frontman of the Montreal alternative band Your Favorite Enemies, an activist and social worker, a former gang member, and a spokesperson for Amnesty International: Alex Henry Foster has a lot under his belt after only 30 years, and he's used most of it as inspiration for his music. The singer, who counts Swans, Sonic Youth, Mogwai, Nick Wave, and The Mars Volta among his influences, has always understood how to combine the artistic with the political, confronting the dark sides of life instead of ignoring them.

Foster's first solo album "Windows in the Sky," written after the death of his father, is also a record about those dark sides, about bitter insights of loneliness and losing your faith. These were thoughts that haunted him during the creation process, and which the literature fan with the penchant for Ginsberg turned into deeply stirring songs such as "The Weight of the World Is Love" or "Summertime Departures." The faith in salvation that he lost has been replaced through his own music.
