She's one of my favourite musicians of all time and it was such a pleasure to catch up after a few years. Josie now lives in Alvechurch, Worcestershire (UK) and we had a beautiful, insightful conversation about Space, Yoga, minimalistic living, starting a new life, the ups and downs of the music industry, and so much more Watch the episode on YouTube. Nominated for 9 South African Music Awards over her last five releases, it’s evident that singer-songwriter Josie Field has no intention of slowing down. Having recently relocated to the United Kingdom, and with her mark on the South African music scene very much made, Josie now expands her audience and brings her music to the world. A combination of Florence and the Machine meets Janis Ian meets Aretha Franklin, Field’s voice is distinct and unusual. Her signature sound is a potent mix of lyricism and fire, heart-felt issues and tender constructions, she has a unique textured blues-infused voice and soulful vocal delivery style. Rooted in folk but having experimented with blues, country, jazz and with strong elements of soul coming through on her latest release, Josie is no ordinary singer-songwriter. She calls her sound ‘Indie Soul’ aptly the title of her brand new solo album which garnered her ninth SAMA nomination for Best Adult Contemporary Album last year. Indie Soul is a modern fusion of acoustic meets digital with a deep 60’s soul flavour that tugs on the heartstrings. “Not many artists have the opportunity to keep writing, recording and releasing albums that they love, as I have done over the last ten years. I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to continue my musical journey, Indie Soul is another moment of my life captured in time and I am really proud of the album.” - Josie Field Experience the intimate nature and soulful performance of one of South Africa’s most versatile and experienced singer-songwriters.
