Alex Henry Foster’s Long Journey to ‘Standing Under Bright Lights’
A warm and open chat about loss and mental health, creativity, songwriting, guitars, and more with Alex Henry Foster of Canadian alt-rock heroes Your Favorite Enemies.
On the podcast this week, Mike has an in-depth chat about loss and mental health, creativity, songwriting, guitars, and more with Alex Henry Foster of beloved Canadian alt-rock heroes Your Favorite Enemies. His latest solo release, ‘Standing Under Bright Lights,’ which just debuted at #4 in Canada, is a triple-record live album and DVD recorded on one special night at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2019. In this conversation, Alex opens up about how losing his father led him on a two-year personal journey in Tangier, Morocco, where he had to confront a lot of his own demons. From that came his solo debut, ‘Windows in the Sky,’ which is totally unlike anything he’d done before in YFE. The one and only concert he did in support of that acclaimed record was multi-media experience that drew fans from all over the world for a very special experience. This is a truly wonderful conversation that covers a lot of ground, from the deeply personal to the fun and lighthearted.
