Murray Foster Film Career & Credits b. in Toronto, Ontario

;Murray Foster;
Murray Foster’s life has been primarily focused on music. He attended the University of Toronto, obtaining an honours degree in English, but while there, he formed Moxy Fruvous with three high school friends: Mike Ford (a two-time Juno nominee), David Matheson (currently playing with Ron Sexsmith, among others) and Jian Ghomeshi. Moxy Fruvous was started as a lark. After three years, they decided to become a ‘real’ band – to start playing clubs and go into a studio and record some songs, which they did in the fall of 1991. Things moved quickly after that – by spring 1992, their six-song independent cassette had topped the Canadian charts and sold 50,000 copies, the first-ever independent release in Canadian history to go gold. In the summer of 1992, they signed an international record contract, opened for Bob Dylan and Bryan Adams, and began recording their first full CD. Moxy Fruvous ended in 2000 and for a year, Foster played music in various Toronto bands – and then, in 2001, Great Big Sea asked him to join the band after their original bass player left. It is a position he holds to this day, having played over a thousand shows with the band and recorded five gold and platinum CDs. Although a musician by profession, he had always had a keen interest in writing and started screenwriting in 2010.
