1)Accents is the side project of the vocalist of The Cast Before The Break, TJ Foster. Foster was born in Simsbury, Connecticut but Accents calls Albany, NY home. When Accents was announced, Foster stated his intentions were to write anthemic, ambient-folk stories, citing influences from a variety of different artists. Over 2 years after some of the songs on the debut, "Growth and Squalor", were written, that's exactly what they've turned into. Accents’ refreshing blend of indie rock caters to an array of audiences.
