The blues infused vocal-rock of Josie Field connects with the intimate folk, country styles of Laurie Levine to create a unique and intimate musical experience. Dubbed the ‘Collaboration of the Year’, and winners of the Standard Bank Ovation award in Grahamstown in 2014, these two Joburg based singer songwriters have created a show that has gone from strength to strength over the last three years.
Following a string of successful national tours and the development of their well loved unique musical partnership, the singer songwriters 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. After sixteen years experience, nine albums and a dozen SAMA nominations between them, these songwriters have honed their craft on ‘Tigerlily’ with eleven beautifully constructed and catchy songs. Ranging from heartfelt folk melodies to sassy, soulful and blues textured tracks, the album’s organic production allows the songs to breath. The combination of earthy acoustic instruments such as banjo and ukulele with electric instruments such as pedal steel and dobro, solidify the duos new signature sound.
“Tigerlily” was recently nominated for a 2016 SAMA in the Best Adult Contemporary Album category.
