The Birth of the Stars

by Anna Coogan and JD Foster

Multi instrumentalist and producer JD Foster’s list of collaborations includes Marc Ribot, Patty Griffin, Calexico, Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakum, Green on Red, and T Bone Burnett, however it was not until his sixtieth year that he put a record out under his own name. “The Birth of the Stars,” scheduled for release in late fall of 2014, was written with songwriter Anna Coogan and drummer Willie B at her home in Ithaca, NY.
