Voice in the Wilderness
Clay Foster is a guitar master in training. At the young age of 21 he plays with the ability of musicians twice his age. His debut album A voice in the Wilderness is just a taste of the musical and technical prowess of this young guitar god. After playing for over elleven years, his musical influences range from the obvious: Pat Metheney, John Petrucci, Becker and Gambale, to the not so obvious: Stevie Wonder, Outkast, Freddie Hubbard, and Herbie Hancock. His music although heavily influenced by great prog metal acts like Dream Theater and Cacophony, is still woven intricatelly with jazz lyricism. Clay has poured his heart and soul into his debut musical creation, A Voice in the Wilderness, as he not only wrote and arranged all the songs, he played many of the instruments and programmed many others. The album also features musician friends of Clay's including Jonathan Parks on drums, and Josh Rose on bass. This album is jam packed with neck-jerk grooves that Clay tastefully shreds his way through. A voice in the Wilderness is nothing short of brilliant.
