ABOUT FRANK FOSTER:
Foster first began learning guitar and writing songs during his junior year of college at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, where he was a member of the men’s basketball team. After college, Foster accepted a full-time position working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, where he would continue working the next 6 years. Ultimately, this is where his music career was born. After working grueling 12 hour shifts on the oil rig, Foster would wind down and relax by playing songs for his co-workers to pass the time. During a performance on the rig, Adam Sanders, Foster’s coworker, recorded a video of Foster singing and uploaded to YouTube. At the time Foster didn’t know what YouTube was and when Sanders told him that his video had been a viral hit, he decided to film some more. In August of 2009, Foster decided to make the move to Nashville to pursue his dreams and record his first album, “Rowdy Reputation.” To Foster’s surprise, he started getting phone calls from people looking to book him for shows. He quickly formed a makeshift band and accepted the offer. He began touring during his time off of the oil rig. He was working a two weeks on, two weeks off schedule. When the two weeks on the rig would end Frank, his band and his wife would begin touring. This would continue for several years until he was able to do music full time. Foster’s wife has been a huge supporter of his career, taking on the role as his booking agent, manager, tour manager and merchandise manager. “Without her, no chance all this happens,” said Foster. During Foster's journey to music stardom, he not only has taken the road less traveled, but the road almost never traveled. In 2014, he was signed by WME, who until now, is one of the few entities involved in Foster's career. He and his wife are still in charge of management, tour management, merchandising, etc. Foster continues to work hard in the studio and tour nationally for his loyal fans.
