Josephine lays stairsteppy melodies beneath a collection of gems from 19th century american poet, emily Dickinson, & sings them with a burnished soulfulness like the purple sunsets so often described in the poems.

Massachusetts mountains pearled spiderwebs & folk hero William Tell are all present in this unforgettable meeting of Dickinson’s poetry & Foster's music. Ms. Foster is a Colorado-born artist whose songwriting draws from far corners of the musical spectrum to form a truly singular body of work. She says her craft is strongly shaped by "Tin Pan Alley on my maternal side, rock & roll on the paternal side, Western folk music by birth, art-song & classical music via my adolescent passions".
