Bio

Who’s Johnnie? Johnnie Foster is the missing piece for a desperately needing to be solved puzzle called today’s music. His sound is that of Inspiration and has crossover appeal in Gospel, Soul, Pop and R&B that has not been seen since the days of Sam Cooke. It can be listened to on Saturday night and Sunday morning. As a prolific writer, producer, arranger and tremendous vocal talent, he is the past, present and future of the music industry.

Foster, born and raised in Durham, NC to a musical family began his career at the age of 10. “I was always pushed out in front of the older kids to sing. There were 15 yr olds doing backgrounds for me” says Johnnie. He performed in various talent competitions and was recognized in Durham for his ability to entertain a crowd. During High School, he became a member of John P. Kee’s Revelational Experience Choir where he developed a skill for writing lyrics.

He later moved to Los Angeles, CA to further his career. “It was time to leave Durham and gain some life experiences.” As a member of the group IZ, he recorded and released his first single, Da Bomb, on an independent label. “When you’re young and trying to break into the business, any experience is helpful.” This was also the time he did his first studio “sessions for hire” getting a chance to work and learn from Marvin Gaye’s producer, Harvey Fuguay. Since leaving L.A., Johnnie has had several songs published, released and distributed by companies CBS, CEI Gospel, and Scotty Brothers Records as a lyricist and arranger. He has also performed backgrounds for Dorothy Norwood and opened for Luther Barnes, Lee Williams and Vicki Winans.

Currently, Johnnie has partnered with Lee Tate of 7 Productions. Tate is a composer, songwriter, producer, engineer and former road drummer to produce his solo CD. “Lee and I worked well together creatively and come up with some very good material.” Johnnie is also commissioned to collaborate with other producers, writers an artist because of his gift to write good hooks and captivating lyrics. Johnnie has just finished his first solo CD titled Testimony. His singles, Rollin’ with the Savior, "Testimony", and "Love Calls" is currently in rotation on WSRC, WTIK, WNCU in North Carolina, 92.7 in Bronswick, GA, several radio stations in Kansas City, MO and many internet radio stations.
