Alex Henry Foster's Next Live Concert Announced!

I hope you’re doing well as the world is slowly reopening, that you’re growing more hopeful with every passing day, but nonetheless remaining careful.

I have to admit that I’m getting more and more impatient to send you messages every single time. I knew it would be fun to take over the club when Alex asked me if I would be interested in this, but I couldn’t imagine just how rich it would be relationship-wise. So I’m really happy we can share like we now do on a regular basis.

That being said, I don’t know if you've been able to join, but we just had another fantastic time during the Facebook Watch Party a little earlier today. It not only felt good to revisit the Lavender Sky live concert we did on June 14, but we were able to receive a greater measure of what Alex expressed through the alternative version of the song and his post-live interview.

The entire vibe around that performance still moves me every time I hear Alex saying "We’re living in a world of disruption". It reminds me of the entire rehearsal process leading to the show. It was a real blessing to see everyone share their feelings today and to see how this song seeded something memorable in every single one of us. It resonates loudly within me and I find it very inspiring! Music moves us all, especially when it’s deeply rooted in something that is truly meaningful to us all!

As you probably now know, Alex loves to share exclusive and unexpected news, as he just did during the Watch Party. No need to say we were all thrilled when he officially announced that he will be collaborating with the renowned music blog Brooklyn Vegan for a special live performance on July 26.

That live performance will feature the song “Snowflakes in July”, of which Alex says it is the most personal and intimate piece on the album “Windows in the Sky”. It should again be a unique musical journey of its own.

But before anything else, here's an exclusive preview of the stage décor that Alex has already prepared with the technical team members. I think it’s the greatest set we've had so far! We are really blessed to have our own kind of private venue.

So, mark the date, my friend! July 26, 10am, Eastern Time! And please, feel welcome to visit Alex Henry Foster's new digital home if you want to read, watch and listen to any of the projects we have released so far.


I had the chance to interview Alex following the initial release of his album Windows in the Sky, back in November 2018. The ambiance of this interview was fragile and delicate yet crisp. We were just coming back from Japan, where Alex wanted to gather all of his friends and fans for two evenings of pre-listening of his soon-to-be-released-only-in-Canada album “Windows in the Sky”, where the audience and I could ask him a few questions. The emotions were tangible

For me, to walk with Alex through what gave birth to his album, whether it was in Tokyo, or during our live sessions on Facebook, was one of the most intense and laborious moments I went through in front of a camera. You need to remember that I’m not only part of Alex’s band, but we are truly close as brothers, too. So even though Alex remains a very private and somehow secretive person, we’ve been friends long enough to know just how difficult the last 10 years have been for him. I knew it wasn’t easy to stand there in front of people while being so emotionally exposed.

His distress was even more noticeable when I asked him the meaning of the song "Snowflakes in July"... His answer was the shortest of the entire interview: “I can’t talk about this song right now… It’s the most personal one on the album." His voice was shaking, and I could see myself in his eyes as they were becoming filled with tears. I regretted asking right away.

I asked Alex again recently, knowing we were heading towards that Snowflakes in July musical journey, and here’s what his answer was:

It sometimes happens that I can perfectly remember the circumstances surrounding a moment that has inspired me for a song, so much so that I can recall the perfume that was floating in the air, the type of light there was and even the precise details of the faces of the people sitting next to me, as if everything had stopped for a split second only for me to capture the meaning of the instant about to unfold before my eyes. “Snowflakes in July” is one of those songs.

I wrote the lyrics back to Montreal after those 2 years in Tangier, right before I started working on the production of “Windows in the Sky”. Recalling those events, in a pure form of automatic writing, from the words I whispered into my father’s ear to the bleakness of the funerals and the light punctuating the sky across the universe, I wrote, without asking myself too many questions. Much of those emotions had been intensively exposed over the course of my 2 years in Tangier and would mark the questions I was still unable to answer or didn’t have the courage to face the implications of.

I added the last verse during the vocal recording, as a last memorial stand, confessing my fear of forgetting, of losing it all. Voices, desires, joy… All the souvenirs that shaped the person I am, that strangely give a meaning to all that silence, that helped me face the emptiness I still feel to this day when I think of ending as a simple picture on which the colors fade as fast as we regret every broken promise, knowing that one day, always too soon, the only thing that will matter is the measure of love we shared with others. This is what will define the image of ourselves that people will remember as they stand before us, gone like a snowflake in July.


Moving from “We’re living in a world of disruption” toward such an intimate and personal moment will be filled with unanticipated, unpredictable and impulsive raw emotions. We’re embarking towards something staggering and liberating where I will have the chance to be your eyes and ears, and welcome you with us during this entire journey.

Looking forward to this new and last chapter in the journey of Windows in the Sky live from The Upper Room Studio… for now!

Your host and friend,
