Foster the People

Foster the People

Formed in LA, California in 2009, Foster the People are an American Indie pop band that saw there first hit, Pumped Up Kids reach number one on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart, number 3 on the Rock Songs tally and number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Mark Foster (vocals, keyboards, piano, synthesizers, guitar, programming, percussion), Mark Pontius (drums and extra percussion), and Cubbie Fink (bass and backing vocals) formed the band while they were on their mid-twenties. Mark Pontius used to play drums and shoot/edit the music videos for the indie pop band 

The band's first name was Foster & the People, but people misheard it as "Foster the People". Eventually, he took to the nurturing image it evoked of "taking care" of the people, so the name stuck.
