Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 album from the Colorado-based singer/songwriter. Graphic As a Star is based upon the poems of the 19th century American poet Emily Dickenson. Josephine lays stairsteppy melodies beneath a collection of Dickenson gems and sings them with a burnished soulfullness like the purple sunsets so often described in the poems. Massachusetts mountains pearled spiderwebs and folk heroe William Tell are all present in this unforgettable meeting of Dickenson's posey and Fosters music making a natural and inevitable whole. Ms. Foster is a Colorado-born artist whose songwriting draws from far corners of the musical spectrum to form a truly singular body of work.
Trust in the Unexpected
How happy is the little Stone
She sweeps with many-colored Brooms
Who is the East?
They called me to the Window
This Is the land the Sunset washes
Like Mighty Foot Lights
Exultation is the going
In falling Timbers buried
With Thee in the Desert
I See Thee Better - In the Dark
Your thoughts don't have words every day
My Life had stood a Loaded Gun
Eden is that old-fashioned House
Beauty crowds me till I die
I could bring You Jewels
Wild Nights - Wild Nights!
Only a Shrine, but Mine
Tho' my destiny be Fustian
What shall I do - it whimpers so
Heart! We will forget him
Strong Draughts of Their Refreshing Minds
Tell as a Marksman
The Spider holds a Silver Ball
I see thee better in the Dark
