Thirty years ago, singer, guitarist and songwriter Jeffrey Dean Foster co-founded The Right Profile. The Winston-Salem-based quartet played high-energy, rootsy rock and roll, and it quickly became one of the best indie bands in our state. Jeffrey’s been releasing amazing songs ever since he and his band were first signed to Arista Records in the mid-80s. He’s received the North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship for Songwriting and Jeffrey Dean Foster and the Birds of Prey are about to release a new album The Arrow, which they’ll share during a Triad concert on New Year’s Eve.
