PRESENTED BY KERRY-ANNE ALLERSTON
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. Josie is a hard working artist, gigging, song-writing and recording in an on-going loop of activity.
Josie started out playing open-mic sessions wherever she could. But since then she has had airplay on every national and regional radio station in the country and shared the stage with huge international acts including James Blunt, Ziggy Marley, Westlife, Missy Higgins and most recently, Michelle Shocked. She was also one of the artists who sang for Nelson Mandela at his 90th Birthday party and performed at Fan Parks at the Semi and Finals of the Soccer World Cup 2010.
2011 saw Field organize her own music festival, The Drake Music Festival, which she promoted, managed and ran herself. Three albums is a career for many artists in South Africa, but Josie has no intention of stopping anytime soon. Having teamed up with Laurie Levine (Americana singer songwriter) in 2013 for Side By Side, their folksy side project, which was dubbed SA’s Best Collaboration of the Year and with an acoustic album just released, 2014 looks very bright indeed.
