Josie Field & Laurie Levine ‘Side By Side’ March Tour

After 16 years experience, eight albums and a dozen SAMA nominations between them. After two national tours together and now dubbed the ‘Collaboration of the Year’, these two extraordinarily hard working singer songwriters are absolutely worth seeing in their side project duo ‘Side By Side’ on tour this March 2014.

Not only is this folksy one-of-a-kind duo a fresh tailor made performance, but it also demonstrates   the ladies’ incredible musically ability as individual artists and through this, highlights their vocal differences which when combined, work astonishingly well together. Down to earth in person, captivating performers and soulful songstress’s the Laurie Levine and Josie Field mix is a potent combo.

The above picture was taken the other night at Floyd’s Barbershop Live and Uncut sessions in JHB, my first unplugged solo show in 8 months, it was nerve wreaking and rough but lovely to play my old songs again. The photographer was snapping away all evening and disappeared before I could get his name, he had a black beard. If you know him please tell him I say thank you.I am wrapping up the year early for once, my tour with Laurie Levine came to an end on Sunday and was an amazing success, and a wonderful way to begin a new phase of my musical career after my break abroad. If you didn’t manage to get to one of our shows, watch us doing a cover of the Kings of Leon ‘Use Somebody’ which also features on our newly released combination album.

Sandton Square on the Day of PrayerLast Sunday Laurie Levine and I finished our amazing Side By Side tour with a performance at the Sandton Theatre on the Square. I took this picture of a crowd gathered in the Square around the Madiba statue and masses of flowers and candles, it was an emotional experience made more so by our final show in the same place.

Things I learned in 2013:

  • The grass is never green for long on the other side.
  • I am capable of anything I put my mind to.
  • Always remember to be grateful for what you have.

Take care and much love x
