Enticing artistic vision

2011-03-11 00:00

JOSIE Field will be performing at the House of Theatre tonight for the launch of her new album, 1984.

She will be supported by Krystle Temmerman.

In five short years, Josie Field has come to occupy that space in the music scene that is reserved for artists whose radio and commercial success is almost accidental in the pursuit of their own artistic vision.

Starting with her captivating debut, 2006’s Mercury, and continuing two years later with her second album Leyland, Field has straddled the barrier between popularity and critical acclaim

Field is the first to admit being a solo woman singer-songwriter in a musical landscape littered with straight-up commercial acts hasn’t been easy, but it’s never stopped the critical acclaim that has come from multiple nominations, including three nods at the 15th Annual MTN South African Music Awards in 2009 (one in the fiercely competitive and highly coveted Best Female Artist category), and a recent nomination in the 2010 MK Awards for her video for Law of Attraction.

Field’s also planning on upping the ante on her songs, her career and especially her live show in 2011, demonstrating yet again the ballsy, focused and infectious belief in her talent.

So alongside her solo shows and the duo performances with Leicher, Field will elevate her already critically acclaimed band performances as she heads into next year.

She’s also eager to expand her musical boundaries by doing more collaborative work, be it with a choir or another artist that is capable of meeting her match.
