The Austin 100: Field Medic
Hometown: San Francisco, California
Why We're Excited: As Field Medic, singer-songwriter Kevin Patrick Sullivan uses the sparest of ingredients — an acoustic guitar, sparse drum-machine beats, an unadorned voice — to build lo-fi folk songs that crackle with vibrant intimacy. In "henna tattoo," Sullivan's small but vividly poetic details help bring together a tentative and vulnerable song about jealousy, insecurity, doubt and "rolling blackouts in your heart."
