Folk group Field Report is led by singer/songwriter Christopher Porterfield, who originally played with Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon in the band DeYarmond Edison. After its breakup, Porterfield worked on his own project, Conrad Plymouth, before changing focus to create Field Report, named after an anagram of his last name. Porterfield’s poetic prowess and lyrical craft garnered invitations for the band to open for Counting Crows, Emmylou Harris and Aimee Mann.
In 2014, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel named Field Report’s song “Home (Leave the Lights On)” as the top song from Milwaukee, and Paste Magazine's Eric Swedlund has described their music as "imaginative, detailed and highly literate, creating character-driven songs, sketches that reinforce their narratives with imagery that coalesces into a remarkable sense of place." The band’s newest album, Marigolden, encompasses a wide range of genres but finds unity within the limits of self-imposed minimalism. http://www.fieldreportmusic.com/
