Foster and Lloyd “Foster and Lloyd”

This was their debut album. I actually started this write up planning to do their second release, Faster and Llouder, but I couldn’t find many videos for that album. I really wanted you to be able to check out some of the album. I was able to find some for the first album so I made the switch.

One of the things I’ve always liked about Foster and Lloyd was the little taste of The Everly Brothers that they’ve thrown in.  Make sure you listen to ‘What Do You Want From Me This Time.’ You’ll hear some heavy Everly Brothers influence in that track!radney

‘Crazy Over You’ did well for the band as well.  As did ‘Sure Thing’ and ‘Texas in 1880,’ the latter probably fitting more in the country genre than in Americana.

I had the rare chance to see Bill Lloyd play with Poco a few years ago. He was filling in for then-Poco guitarist Paul Cotton. Paul had taken ill so Bill filled in for a few shows. I sure missed seeing them with Paul, but having Bill there was indeed a nice surprise. I’ve attached a link to Bill’s website below. I must say, it’s one of the more unique websites from a musician I’ve ever seen. Well done Bill!

billlloydBill also has carved out a nice little career for himself in the power pop market recently. Hey, when you can write good songs……

Radney Foster has consistenly been releasing good music  for years also. His latest album being the 2009 release Revival

The latest news is that they have even re-grouped. They are currently working on their first album together in years. It’s working title is ‘It’s Already Tomorrow.’  Expect it around April.  It will be available on Radney’s website. You can get Rivival there as well!
