Confirmed to Play: FIELD REPORT

Austin, TX - Saturday 3/17
19 Acts & Completely Free!


World Debut at The Roadshow!




NEW MUSIC DEBUT - FIELD REPORT is the creation of Chris Porterfield, whose debut record is a collection of songs six years in the making. Chris cut his musical teeth with DeYarmond Edison (the other members of which were Justin Vernon and Megafaun). After their breakup in 2006, Bon Iver and Megafaun went on to success while Chris hung back in Wisconsin, thinking his career in music was probably over. It was really just beginning. For the first time in his life, he began writing his own songs, which he spent the following six years carefully perfecting. In December 2011, the record was finally committed to tape at Justin Vernon’s studio.

The result is a haunting set of songs that are both crafty and poignant. After sending a few unfinished tracks to select people, the response was immediate and impactful: producer Paul Kolderie (Radiohead, Warren Zevon, The Pixies, Uncle Tupelo) fell in love with them and offered to mix the record, which he did in February 2012. SXSW will be the world debut of Field Report, after which they hit the road as main support on Megafaun’s national tour. Field Report joins the 19 act lineup at The Outlaw Roadshow this St. Patrick's Day. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of something new and great.
