Foster the People Agency Booking Profile
Foster the People is an American indie pop band founded in Los Angeles, California in 2009. The group is composed of Mark Foster (vocals, keyboards, piano, synthesizers, guitar, programming, percussion), Cubbie Fink (bass and backing vocals), and Mark Pontius (drums, percussion). The group’s music, described as melodic dance-infused pop and rock, spans many genres. Foster founded the band in 2009 after spending several years in Los Angeles as a struggling musician and working as a commercial jingle writer. After Foster’s song “Pumped Up Kicks” became a viral success in 2010, the group received a record deal from Startime International and gained a fanbase through small club shows and appearances at the music festivals Coachella and South by Southwest. After releasing their debut album ”Torches” in May 2011, “Pumped Up Kicks” became a crossover hit on commercial radio in mid-2011, reaching number one on ”Billboard”s Alternative Songs chart, number three on the Rock Songs chart, and number three on the ”Billboard” Hot 100, while charting on the Adult Top 40 and Mainstream Top 40 charts. The group received two Grammy Award nominations for ”Torches” and “Pumped Up Kicks”. Other hits include: “Helena Beat”, “Houdini” and “Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls)”.
