Jen Foster returned to Nashville Sunday Night on 8/7/11 with her band to headline on the big new 3rd and Lindsley stage. Jen’s been one of Nashville’s top indie artists for nearly a decade. Her song “Taking Bob Dylan” made Lightning 100′s Top 20 for the year in 2006. Since then she’s won numerous songwriting awards and had many songs featured in TV shows and movies. Her set this night included some old favorites and some brand-new songs she’s recently recorded but has yet to release. The SoundCloud highlight reel below features four songs from this set: Let Me Give You My Coat, Taking Bob Dylan (audio), Amen, Secondhand Love (audio), There For You, The Least I Can Do, Venice Beach (audio), Closer To Nowhere (audio), and Last Call.
The problem Jen Foster will always have is how to top the near-perfect song she wrote and recorded in 2005, “Taking Bob Dylan.” You can’t top perfection, just strive to equal it, and she may very well do it on her forthcoming album. Here’s a couple of brand new, as-yet-unreleased tracks she’s sent us from the recording studio as well as an old favorite. All these will likely be performed on our 8/7/11 Nashville Sunday Night broadcast from the newly expanded 3rd and Lindsley. Let’s give our Nashville girl a big audience for her homecoming.
