Lesbian singer/songwriter Jen Foster does not mind frequent comparisons to Melissa Etheridge. But her music is distinctly different than the work of the leading lady of gay music, and the only two things she and Etheridge ultimately have in common is being gay and being a woman, Foster says.
“I admire Melissa, and I have tremendous respect for what she has done for the gay community,” Foster says. “I see my image as a little bit more feminine than Melissa’s. My music is also different, and I’d like to appeal to an even broader audience than she does.”
Foster’s debut CD “Everybody’s Girl” is a heartfelt pop-rock album that covers a range of very personal sentiments. The record includes songs about falling in love (“She”), the struggle to conform (“Everybody’s Girl”) and failing relationships (“Superwoman’).
