About Willie Foster
The real deal. Foster is a Delta singer playing shuffling tracks like he knows what it feels like to be down and out. His deep, gritty voice sings and hums the audience into submission, before his excellent, Jimmy Reed style harmonica honks and sustains till everyone in his range has the blues just as hard as he does. Not for the weak, synthesizer loving pop-blues fan, this is earthy and low down music driven by a stinging back-up band.
