YOU SAID is the brilliant new studio album from up and coming Adelaide band Brenton Foster Band.
Recorded in Adelaide in July-October 2010 with super producer Brett Taylor [Special Patrol, Illicit Eve], YOU SAID is a truly refreshing debut release, combining lyric sentiment with melodic sensitivity.
YOU SAID marks its entrance with the opening track, “Here I Am” – an unmistakable statement signaling the introduction of what is undoubtedly one of Adelaide’s finest outfits. The album’s title track and first single, “You Said” is a true representation of what the album is really about – love, and its resulting emotions.
“We really just started with a handful of songs” frontman Brenton Foster says of the album. “Once we were in the studio though, they transformed so organically into a fantastically crafted album. As a songwriter it is amazing to see your original ideas come to life at the hands of such stellar musicians in such a refreshingly dynamic way.”
YOU SAID reels off one hit after another from the highly catchy “Only For The Night” to the funk inspired “So Damn Right”, featuring a guest appearance by arguably Australia’s best saxophonist Chris Soole. YOU SAID’s guest appearances compliment the already outstanding musical performance of band members Brenton Foster, Cam Blokland, Marty Holoubek and Joel Prime.
YOU SAID is a collection of Brenton Foster Band’s finest work to date. “We really just recorded our best bunch of songs,” says Brenton. “All we know now is that we’re all ecstatic about how the album has turned out, and we all think and hope that our audience will be too."
