Alex Henry Foster & the Long Shadows

alex henry foster

Alex Henry Foster (AHF) is a Canadian musician, singer-songwriter, author, producer, and composer, best known as the frontman of Juno Awards nominee Post-Rock / Noise band Your Favorite Enemies (YFE).Fierce human rights advocate, Foster has been a very active public speaker over the last decade, commenting on racism, the proliferation of street gangs – in the midst of which he spent his teenage years, the resurgence of populism and identity extremism amongst other things, as well as teaming up with Amnesty International for several campaigns. He also established the non-profit group Rock N Rights in 2004, initiating sensibilization awareness towards children soldiers, has created The Hope Project following the Japanese Tsunami of 2011, and most recently took part in the recent pressure on the Canadian authorities regarding Saudi blogger Raif Badawi.

On November 9, 2018, Foster released a first solo music project, an intimate poetry essay about finding peace, faith and hope through the context of grief, depression, and distress. This album is the first project to be released within a new partnership venture established between his label Hopeful Tragedy Records and Sony Music Entertainment / The Orchard. A real baseball fanatic and a counterculture kook, Foster is also the proud daddy of two dogs named Leonard and MacKaye… and likes to simply be called Alex.
