Sean Foster and The Vaqueros: a band that will move you.

Honest is the word that Sean Foster chose when I asked him what word best describes his music. The talented songwriter could not have chosen a more appropriate adjective to describe his deep and beautiful sound.

Music has always been a part of Sean's life. His dad gave him his first guitar when he was just a kid; and throughout his youth he played in a Rock Band for 9 years. He moved to Montreal from Edmonton in the Fall of 2009. Upon his arrival, he was warmly welcome by the local music scene and quickly formed meaningful relationships with different musicians and artists. He quickly made a name for himself and started playing shows all across the city. His biggest show so far was at the National last year, when Chinatown asked him to open for them on the night of their album launch.

For Foster story telling is the best way with which he can best express himself. With song titles from 'Mary go Round' to 'Hollow Woods' he has the ability to write about the happiest times and the sad ones too. In person, Foster speaks with passion of his love for music, he describes it as being at the core of his existence, and surely that passion is well reflected in his lyrics and melodies.

Q) What inspired you to write your own lyrics?
A) I am always writing about life and for me writing my own lyrics just came naturally.

Q) What are your sources of inspiration?
A) Life in general; the highs and lows of life.

Q) What has been your biggest challenge?
A) Last year, I opened for Chinatown at the National for their album launch, that was a pretty great challenge.

Q) How did you form Sean Foster and The Vaqueros?
A) The band was formed in a very organic way in November 2011. I met both Brian Smith and George Donoso III when I moved here. Having already been influenced by the Cuban music scene; I was inspired to create a sound with similar fusions and mixtures. When Brian told me he played the Spanish box I knew I had found a great new addition to the band; and I always knew I wanted to collaborate with George.

Q) What's next for Sean Foster and The Vaqueros?
A) We're launching our first album in next year...which is really existing as it will be the result of all our work as a band. In April, we're releasing a 7"; our first two singles will be 'Merry go Round' and 'Hollow woods'.

Make sure to catch Sean Foster and The Vaqueros on January 25th at Casa Del Popolo.

I like how honest is what he used. These days, more often than not, musicians don't have the word honest in mind when they are writing songs and making music I'm sure. I also know that I would have loved to watch them if I had known earlier that he had a gig while I was visiting.
