The Austin 100: Field Report

Field Report.
Field Report.

Hometown:Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Genre:Roots Rock

Why We're Excited:Field Report's Christopher Porterfield got his start playing alongside Bon Iver's Justin Vernon all the way back in their DeYarmond Edison days, and now his Field Report project is getting its due after several strong albums. Summertime Songs slickens Porterfield's sound without sacrificing warmth or depth, as evidenced by the hooky, handclappy anthem "Never Look Back."
