What started as a solo project for me has turned into much more, Burning Hope. I wrote the songs for this project, but now we are culminating our talents and writing together. We all love diversity and we all have a variety of influences. We are starting off our career as a band with this disk that we have all bled for. I did all the writing, arranging and guitar playing, but once Ross and Dave put their signatures on it it became a whole new animal. Dave is a spaceoid. He revels in Hendrix, Dylan, and the like. What makes him such a great bass player is the way he feels the music. Ross has played around for a while, even with Robert Cray. The guy is what almost no drummers are- creative! As for myself, I have trained with the local legend Mike Bruce, as well as (indirectly) Rik Emmett, Steve Vai, Kory Clarke, Steve Harris, and Buddy Guy to name a few. I try and arrive at my stuff by my own path and I think this shows in the tunes. Enjoy! Foster.
