Foster grew up in two worlds – herding cattle on horseback at his grandfather’s East Texas ranch in the summers and hunkering over a transistor radio in West Texas hometown, listening to border radio. “My house in Del Rio was a mile from Mexico, so I heard everything growing up – from country to conjunto.” That hybrid of influences may be why Foster’s always been tough to categorize; his first success was with the seminal country/cowpunk duo Foster & Lloyd, whose first single, “Crazy Over You,” went straight to #1. His subsequent solo albums told tales through a honky tonk lens and yielded enduring hits “Just Call Me Lonesome” and “Nobody Wins.”
“Telling stories is embedded and ingrained in my DNA” says Foster. “My grandfather was a cowboy raconteur and a storyteller. He didn’t sing songs, but he sure told stories around the campfire. There’s a long, long history of yarn spinning in Texas, and I like to think I come from that tradition.”
Originally both from neighboring small towns in North Texas, the musical collaboration of these two come as no surprise when you uncover their particularly unique lineage. Sprouting from families of musicians who also played music together, Scribner and McBroom seemed to be destined from the beginning to join forces and create music together.
Now in their early 20s, the duo has been making music together in the form of, writing, playing, and producing since they were in middle school. Originally collaborating casually, these two ended up working together so much they had no choice but to start a band. At the core of the project, Levi Scribner and Reed McBroom set out a clear mantra by focusing their energies on making songs that merge country-tinged vocal harmonies with hard-rock guitars and catchy melodies that are are clear representation of their southern roots.
The Marfa Lights debut album, "Open Road", is now available on all digital media outlets.
