Foster The People came together in late 2009 when Mark Foster met band mates Cubbie Fink and Mark Ponitus through mutual friends in the Los Angeles music scene. Foster hailing from Cleveland, OH had been writing and recording music since his youth but it wasn't until the three members came together that Foster's music for the band's debut release, Torches, was ready for friends to hear. In early 2010, Foster The People posted their first song "Pumped Up Kicks" on the internet. Days later it was used to score a friend's fashion video, days after that it showed up on Hype Machine and a year later it had seemed to make its way into the ears of millions of listeners around the world.
The Los Angeles based trio recently received two Grammy nominations for 'Best Alternative Album' and 'Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.' This news comes on the heels of the band's gold certification of their celebrated album Torches, which gained global attention with its Top 10 Billboard chart debut in May.
