Call Security is a four-piece alternative rock group known for blending folk and rock sensibilities with melodic pop hooks. Reminiscent of bands such as The Killers, Neon Trees, and Mumford and Sons, Call Security experiments with elements from several genres to create modern high-energy music. In 2013, Call Security was named the “Judges’ Choice” winner at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center Battle of the Bands, selected from a pool of 48 contending groups.
Call Security has opened for acts such as Passion Pit, We The Kings, and Orianthi featuring Alice Cooper since the release of their debut EP “To Whom it May Concern”, and at venues like The Smith Opera House, Webster Hall, CollegeFest at Fenway Park, and RedGorilla Fest in Austin.
Ed Foster has been playing guitar since the summer of 2001, when an early heartbreak led him to find emotional release through music. Having spent the last year absorbing the music by the likes of The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, he began learning their tunes and took a few months of guitar lessons. In college, he began a jazz collection and started playing with the URI Traditional Jazz Ensemble: a group playing primarily Dixieland music. In 2006 he began dabbling in the genre of “ambient” music, which is still a staple of performance. A standard Voodoo Cuisine show includes a set of original, loosely pop-structured tunes that incorporate strange harmonic ideas, driving rhythmic guitar and ambient effects. The songs are often tied together with loosely composed instrumentals pieces written around the careful use of a loop station.
