Jonathan Foster - The Mountain Echo (2022)
Foster also discussed his inspiration for the track. "It's certainly a nostalgic song. I attended Clifton-Fine Central School from Kindergarten to 12th grade graduation in Star Lake, New York, and the yearbook there is entitled The Mountain Echo which I thought would make for a fitting folk song. The visions in the lyrics come from the cold run before soccer practice, the first outdoor baseball game of the year, school dances, the sensory overload of adolescence, feeling stuck in a small town, how fast it actually goes by, and a reminder that the only constant in life is change (along with a team nickname change from Indians to Eagles)."
The accompanying colorful video is a "self-made creation" that - unlike many of those produced during the heyday of MTV - is actually related to the topic of the song.
Unlike a lot of musicians who run out of fresh ideas as their careers progress Foster is one artist whose work continues to impress.
