Indie Soul, Field’s 5th full length studio album is testament to her mature yet irresistibly catchy songwriting style. Five albums later and its clear that Field has raised the bar once more, the writing is insightful, taking everyday situations and dissecting them as only Field can, yet the themes remain beautifully simple. Indie Soul is a sonic journey combining old school soul with contemporary sounds, Field’s strong bluesy voice is the glue that holds it all together, she has cemented her sound, arguably her best work to date.

“This is Josie Field, always one of the most unique voices on South Africa’s music scene, at her best. Her latest work is beautiful, controlled and refined, yet ragged, raw, restless and regretful in the right places. In her new songs Field renders herself naked, pushing her music to the edge… A glorious precipice to experience.” ~ Darren Taylor Voice of America (VOA) Radio

Following a string of successful national tours and the development of their well-loved, unique musical partnership over the last four years, Josie Field and Laurie Levine have taken their collaboration to the next level by releasing their first co-written album consisting of a collection of brand new original material. The first of its kind for two female South African singer-songwriters, ‘Tigerlily’ is a rich blend of Josie Field’s deep, soulful blues tones with Laurie Levine’s velvet-honey country inflections, with a strong focus on their elegant harmonies.
