Discography

YOU SAID is the brilliant new studio album from up and coming Adelaide band Brenton Foster Band.

Recorded in Adelaide in July-October 2010 with super producer Brett Taylor [Special Patrol, Illicit Eve], YOU SAID is a truly refreshing debut release, combining lyric sentiment with melodic sensitivity.

YOU SAID marks its entrance with the opening track, “Here I Am” – an unmistakable statement signaling the introduction of what is undoubtedly one of Adelaide’s finest outfits. The album’s title track and first single, “You Said” is a true representation of what the album is really about – love, and its resulting emotions.

“We really just started with a handful of songs” frontman Brenton Foster says of the album. “Once we were in the studio though, they transformed so organically into a fantastically crafted album. As a songwriter it is amazing to see your original ideas come to life at the hands of such stellar musicians in such a refreshingly dynamic way.”

YOU SAID reels off one hit after another from the highly catchy “Only For The Night” to the funk inspired “So Damn Right”, featuring a guest appearance by arguably Australia’s best saxophonist Chris Soole. YOU SAID’s guest appearances compliment the already outstanding musical performance of band members Brenton Foster, Cam Blokland, Marty Holoubek and Joel Prime.

YOU SAID is a collection of Brenton Foster Band’s finest work to date. “We really just recorded our best bunch of songs,” says Brenton. “All we know now is that we’re all ecstatic about how the album has turned out, and we all think and hope that our audience will be too.”

YOU SAID is set for independent release on December 3, 2010 at the Ed Castle, Adelaide. 2011 will see Brenton Foster Band performing and promoting the album regularly amongst its Adelaide and Melbourne audiences, as well as touring further up Australia’s East Coast in April-May.

Born in 2009 to showcase the songwriting of its namesake, BRENTON FOSTER BAND has rapidly become Adelaide’s finest up and coming pop-rock outfit, garnering public acclaim from patrons and venues each time they perform.

Leader, Brenton Foster, reflects on the band’s beginnings:

“It was hardly the classic rock and roll tale – that of sweating it out in someone’s garage while writing simple rock songs together. However, the band’s beginnings were no less magical or moving for all of us.”

Having studied music together at Uni, the guys had been performing together for several years before the advent of BRENTON FOSTER BAND, often performing alongside some of the world’s finest jazz and popular musicians visiting Adelaide.

“BRENTON FOSTER BAND was an inevitable progression for me, having grown up listening to pop music (particularly that of Billy Joel, Elton John and Bruce Hornsby to name a few). I was obviously so fortunate to meet such fine quality musicians and friends, who shared the same passion for creating our very own version of the music we had all grown up with.

From the first rehearsal, I knew that the band was something special. The feeling of playing my own songs, and hearing what the guys did with them was really amazing.”

It was always the band’s intention to head to the studio quickly, and in July 2010, BRENTON FOSTER BAND began recording their debut, full-length album YOU SAID with producer Brett Taylor. YOU SAID is set for independent release on December 3, 2010 at the Ed Castle, Adelaide.

This year sees BRENTON FOSTER BAND continue its rapid rise within the Australian music scene. The band plans to tour the East Coast in April-May 2011, as well as performing regularly in Adelaide and Melbourne.
