Wilson’s voice brings new dimension to the genre. Far from the tried and true baritones of your Waylons and Merles, Wilson evokes something slightly punk rock. Imagine Blink 182’s Tom Delonge was raised on Hank Williams, and you’ll get the idea. It’s kind of like Jack White singing “Jolene”. Yeah, it’s a man singing to a man, but if you can squash the homophobia, it just sounds like a good, passionate song. - Skope Magazine
Paisley Fields is an act that deserves to go big, with enough charisma for pop crossovers and enough authenticity for the country scene.

Paisley Fields

Paisley Fields are an alt-country band, unapologetic about pushing boundaries and seeking inspiration in the unexpected. Though lead singer James Wilson is inspired by classic country music, he wanted Paisley Fields’ music to reflect the modern world. 

“Glitter & Sawdust is gorgeous Nashville pop with a honky tonkheart, from the hillbilly jam ‘Winchester’s Gun’ to a phenomenal cover of Little Big Town’s pot-stirrer “Girl Crush”. -Noisey
“I love them and they give me a thrill – that kind of heart-to-heart connection that we all search for in our music. It’s a powerful. engaging album. Glitter & Sawdust proves that queer themes can and should belong in the classic country canon.”  - Wide Open Country

“Alt-country band The Paisley Fields just released the music video for their latest single, “Butterflies,” and it’s taking us on an animated journey with two gay lovers. After wrapping up a tour of Pride festivals this summer, the band is now hitting the road to play songs off of their new EP, Oh These Urban Fences, which includes the new track” - NEWNOWNEXT

Queer country at its best is audaciously represented by recording stars, Paisley Fields, a Brooklyn based country and western band headed by frontman James Wilson. About to drop their newest album, entitled “Glitter and Sawdust”, this band has created a strong buzz in the country music industry.
-Vents Magazine
James embraced his Midwestern roots for these songs, and the songs shine with those complicated emotions: nostalgia, happiness, heartbreak, isolation. Oh These Urban Fences is a labor of love that demands your attention. - No Depression
I love Paisley Fields. Paisley Fields are a 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 Paisley Fields’ lyrics to reflect a modern world. In this sense, he definitely succeeds. Paisley Fields has that great Parton pop sensibility with Parsons whole country rock feel, before it was Californialized. - AudioFuzz
