Meet Geoffrey Foster

Today we’d like to introduce you to Geoffrey Foster.

Geoffrey, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I am a DJ, Producer, and Sound Engineer from West Los Angeles, CA. I produce music under the alias “Freewavez”. Since I was a teenager, music had a huge impact on me and still remains to do so. In high school, I began DJing various nightclubs throughout Los Angeles. I started writing music in 2016, releasing two full-length projects the following year, “SONGz4U.WAV” and “8.WAV”. I just finished and released another full-length EP, “LATER THAN NEVER”.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I would say my music takes a lot of influence from electronic and hip-hop elements. My writing process starts on my laptop. This gives me the most freedom to create when and wherever I want. As ideas begin to transform into full songs, I start to transfer those projects to my studio computer to take a little more seriously.

My art is directly inspired by my life. Just as some people write in a journal, I express myself and what’s going on in my life via music. Every EP has a story filled with ups and downs. Flow is very important to me and I made it a goal for my newest project, “LATER THAN NEVER” to sound continuous. I orchestrated the EP so that the listener is able to feel the progression of the story as project plays.

What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
Being a creative I know that life can feel very lonely. Know that some days will be worse than others. Surround yourself with genuine friends and family that are supportive of your goals. Also, I recommend taking that extra step to reach out to other artists, immersing yourself and supporting the culture all around. We all need each other’s support and love. You are not alone!

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
There are many ways you show your support. Currently, you can listen to all my music and follow FREEWAVEZ on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal, Napster, and Audius. Be sure to follow FREEWAVEZ on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to keep up to date news. Lastly, if you like what you hear, come out to the brand new live show “THE WAVE” featuring music from myself and some other talented artists this December in Los Angeles.
