“The theme of leaving places or people behind is explored on the Glen Foster Group’s latest album, Leaving The Lagoon. Foster, lead vocalist and guitarist, was inspired by his canoe and kayak trips and travels on Cortes Island and Powell River. “A lot of the songs refer to being on the water” said Foster. Over his travels, Foster collected pieces of information, such as interesting place names that stuck out. Places like the Jail House Café, in Powell River, are some of the “funny little names of places’ Foster collected. When it came to writing the songs he used this information, picked up his guitar and came up with a melody to compose his lyrics. “The lyrics are an important aspect of my music." Telling a story is an essential part of Foster’s art. The latest work is a concept album, an album that expresses a theme. “The lagoon kind of symbolizes your comfort zone or happy place and then leaving, you need to get out of the comfort zone or you’re forced to leave,”
