About The Paisley Fields
The Paisley Fields are a Brooklyn based queer country band, unapologetic about pushing boundaries and seeking inspiration in the unexpected. Though lead singer James Wilson is inspired by country musicians like Dolly Parton and Gram Parsons, he wanted The Paisley Fields lyrics to reflect a modern world. Pittsburgh City Paper writes, "While The Paisley Fields have a good bit in common with contemporary country — rich production, songs with pop bones and twangy accents — the band probably won't be touring with Toby Keith anytime soon. They're a refreshing change from country radio." The band tours frequently, and their latest album, Oh These Urban Fences, is described by No Depression as "a labor of love that demands your attention.” The Paisley Fields are James Wilson on keyboard and lead vocals, Anna Volpe on tambourine and vocals, James Steiner on drums and mandolin, Rob Fernandez on bass and Alex Feigin on drums and guitar. Renowned Brooklyn country artist Aron Blue will be joining The Paisley Fields for the first leg of their Paisley Pride tour this summer.
