"In order to really fall in love with music again, I had to fall out of love with everything I thought I loved about music... and if there's anything I want you to take away from this new music it's simply that. Sometimes before you can ever really find yourself you have to lose yourself first."
Established in 2012 as an outlet for multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Garrett Foster, Messenger Down has faced more change in it's few years than most artists see in 10. Pairing raw instrumentation and soaring melodies with electronic soundscapes and pop sensibility, this Charlotte, NC native's eclectic and ever-changing brand of Alternative music takes on an identity all it's own. His new EP, Cheating Death, is a breath of fresh air for Foster himself and music listeners alike; one you'll want to breathe in as deeply as your lungs will allow and hold until you're blue in the face.
