Foster Child – Self Titles CD (1996)

May 4, 2009

Artist : Foster Child
Release Title : Foster Child
Home : Chatham
Music Style : Rock
Date : 1996

Musicians :
Shawn Beaulieu - vocals, guitars
Mat Drew – Vocals, Percussion
Jay Moskaluk – Guitar , bow

Chuck Young – Drums

The Demo :  This is their second demo, Recorded & Produced by Steve Eyres.
The original 3 thrash kids (Shawn,Jesse,Chuck) recruited Jay & Mat from the local cover band ‘Soul Kitchen’.
Due to the lack of venues having original music, the band doubled as a cover band with originals thrown in to keep them playing every weekend. The band found themselves booked endlessly packing venues all over Ontario for the next 2 years including a few Cornstalks, KOA Bash’s,  & a handfull of arena shows.
The band did a summer tour of Ontario in support of this demo & heavy playing everywhere & anywhere lead to a good following.
Although the plan was to gain more exposure by playing covers & getting into more clubs from this, they found covers were consuming all their time. by 1997, members started up original projects ‘Janet Theory’ & ‘Whatever’, while keeping Foster Child just a cover band once in a while until 1999 when their original projects took on life.

The Scoop
      This is the first of 2 demos for the band. At the ages of 13, 14 & 15 this band surprised the scene by being extremely tight, fast, & different from everything else going on locally.
      The demo was recorded in 1 day by Rick Neufeld (Wallaceburg). The band found themselves playing all over Ontario & often having to leave the venue after their sets because they were way to young to be inside the clubs they were playing.
This was the beginning of a writing team of Shawn & Jesse who later formed The Janet Theory, Dead Girls Union & Demo Kid.

   Before the release of the pink tape demo, they recorded a three song demo that was never released. This recording had Simon Coleman on drums.

Gift Of Life, In The Real World , Dark Room Dream , Once A Slave, Alien Breed, Gift Of Life, Open Future, Colour My World, More Of You , The Final Chapter,(Bonus Track – Peter and the Wolf)
