Rock the Stream
Chris, frontman of Field Report, has been hailed by NPR Music, Rolling Stone, TIME, & more for his poignant lyrics & soothing melodies set to stunningly luscious contemporary Americana compositions. It’s no wonder he’s been tapped by Emmylou Harris, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, & Counting Crows to open shows.
Chris started as a member of the folk-rock group DeYarmond Edison with Vernon (Bon Iver). When the band decided to relocate to North Carolina 2006, Porterfield opted to stay in Wisconsin. After spending the next few years writing and refining his own songs, Porterfield joined forces with Barry Clark (bass), Devin Drobka (drums) and Thomas Wincek (founding member of Volcano Choir, keys) combining their own unique styles and influences to create a sound that Paste called “dynamic and earnest, familial and familiar.”
BRAKE LIGHT RED TIDE
An all-too-familiar sight… the seemingly endless line of restless automobiles. You’re brought to a full stop, surrounded by countless others caught in the same net. It’s an appropriate metaphor as Field Report divests from the traditional path… one full of resistance, false-starts, and artificial stops. Preceded by a steady stream of material, Field Report’s first album on Fellesskap Records, Brake Light Red Tide, was released on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, available now on all streaming platforms.
