From the same Wisconsin-based ennui that brought you Justin Vernon's Grammy Award-winning Bon Iver comes another soft folk artist (we've mentioned him before
). Field Report
comes from the mind of Chris Porterfield, an old friend of Vernon's who played in DeYarmond Edison almost ten years ago. While lyrically, the two both have a spectacularly poetic grasp on human emotion, the similarities end there.
Field Report's latest release "Chico The American" (from his forthcoming self-titled) demonstrates his lyrical chops, strong delivery and folksy twang. See for yourself!
His self-titled album is due out on 9/11.
