From their Wikipedia entry, Foreign Born is an American folk rock band. They began in San Francisco during the late summer months of 2003, but soon relocated to Los Angeles.

While touring the US and UK with Rogue Wave, Jason Collette, Cold War Kids, Giant Drag and We Are Scientists, they recorded their first full length album, On the Wing Now, in the fall/winter of 2005, self-released 500 or so copies that they sold on the previously mentioned tours, and officially released the album with Dim Mak on August 21, 2007.
