The Alternative-Rock combo Fosterchild was truly born on the 4th of July 2005 upon the playing of their very first show. The band's maturation process was accelerated by the members' chemistry and their compatible musical histories. Guitar player Brian Quinn left his five year work with a local Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA, band to share the vision of drummer Kevin Miller who had recently relinquished his successful nine-year career with platinum-selling recording artists, Fuel. Bassist Erik Leonhardt said goodbye to his group just before the trio met vocalist Danny Beissel and eventually signed to Silent Majority Group.
Fosterchild's debut album, "Independence Day", was issued by the Florida label in the spring of 2007; the 11-track set included the single "On My Own".
