foster brown: Naturally - 2004
The winner of a 2004 Parents' Choice 'Recommended' Award, this recording of children's nature songs is infused with creative energy and joy. Moods run the gamut from the sweet and soothing 'Loon Lullaby' to the scandalously instructional 'Scit Scat Diddly Doo' and the merry 'Sweet Sap Smile.' Foster fashioned these songs for all ages, providing fun nature lessons set to memorable rhythm and rhyme

Legacy of the Land: Songs of the Emerald Necklace - 2002
Foster crafted this set of original songs to shed light on the stories, places, natural features and events that helped contribute to what we call the Emerald Necklace. This refers to the string of reservations comprising Cleveland Metroparks, which surrounds metropolitan Cleveland as a natural respite from urban life.

Ohio & Erie Canal: Inspired Songs that Tell the Story - 2000
This educational CD was developed with students in mind, to teach them about the canal era of Ohio. Through song, Foster demonstrates what life was like for those who dug the canal, for a canal boat captain, for a canaler's child, even for the mules that towed the canal boats up and down the corridor of water. The beauty of this recording is that it is part of a set. An accompanying instructional booklet features historical background, photos and a written score for each song.
