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
Jesse Verleye – Vocals, Bass
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.

Track Listing.
01 40 Seconds.mp3.
02 Fall Away.mp3.
03 Kevin.mp3.
04. Baleful Dogma.mp3.
