Bands to Watch Lineup:
“Summertime Songs,” Field Report
Field Report’s Christopher Porterfield is more than a singer and songwriter; he’s a poet, his lyrics on his folk band’s first two albums evocative of the majesty and mystery Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen conveyed throughout their storied songbooks. And on “Summertime Songs,” Field Report’s finest work, Porterfield accomplishes a seemingly simple, undoubtedly arduous feat, condensing his vivid phrasing into his most accessible, and ultimately arresting, statements, while relying, more than ever, on the wear of his cracked voice, and the sweeping grandeur and intimate touch of his backing band, to convey feelings that can’t be said.Milwaukee Journal Sentinel2018 Bands to Watch88Nine Radio MilwaukeeSaturday, January 12 | 7 - 11PM
