As a songwriter Foss has had tracks covered by John Martyn, Spyro Gyra, Fish and Kenny Thomas, whose version of the track, 'Piece by Piece', was released as a single reaching the UK charts as well as in numerous other territories. This song was also chosen as the title track for a John Martyn album on Island Records to mark John's 25th year in the music business.
Foss has been involved quite heavily in the Film/TV world for some time now producing soundtracks for Channel 4, BBC1, BBC2 and Virgin Films and more recently on a succession of WWII documentaries for The Discovery and History channels.
Along with a few friends; Alan Thomson (bass), Aran Ahmun (drums) and Doug Morter (guitar/vox), a new album, 'Think I will Fall', was finished. The band's called 'The Wheel' and the album was recorded mainly in Denmark. It's R&B with a mixed content and should have a wide appeal.
