Album Notes
Her signature sound is a potent mix of lyricism and fire, heart-felt issues and tender constructions. She has a unique voice as well as vocal delivery style that sets her apart from the mainstream pop princesses of the music world. This marked leaning to sing about actual issues means that her guitar-led songs have an edge to them that many do not expect. Having dabbled in soul, blues and country on her third album and with strong elements of jazz coming through on her latest release, Josie is no ordinary folk musician, don’t be misled by the singer/songwriter tag.

After a nine year career, four albums and receiving six (6) South African Music Award (SAMA) nominations by 2012 including Best Female Artist: Josie Field has had one of the more interesting journeys through the South African music landscape.

Her debut album Mercury was the spark that started the fire back in 2006. Several songs went on to receive radio play-listing and the album sold well. Josie followed that up in 2008 with Leyland which was an altogether deeper, slightly darker record.

She received three (3) SAMA and two (2) MK Award nominations for the album but has not stopped there. 1984 was released in early 2011 and was an instant hit with fans and critics alike receiving three (3) SAMA nominations in 2012 including the coveted “Best Female Artist” nomination.

Josie Field has emerged from being the new, young singer-songwriter on the block to being an established artist with a career of depth and variety. She has stuck to her guns, developing a body of work that has to be taken seriously in its range, depth and the accumulated volume of hours behind it. Her on-going creative collaboration with producer Kevin Leicher has added structure to her output over time.
