Field Report is a Milwaukee band fronted by singer-songwriter Christopher Porterfield. After making waves with their 2012 self-titled debut, Field Report (an anagram of Porterfield) now releases their sophomore effort, Marigolden.

Chris Porterfield's latest album as Field Report is beautifully written and produced, filled with warmth and subtlety. Marigolden is one of my favorite records of the year and it's our New Dig this week, so I was psyched to hear the new songs in live performance. Chris brought the new incarnation of Field Report to Rockwood Music Hall in an exclusive show for FUV Marquee Members. Many didn't know much about the band going into the show, but clearly left as new fans. During the show, Chris talked about his changed relationship with alcohol, the nuances of writing and recording and some of his inspiration surrounding Marigolden.

The "story" behind Field Report is that Chris Porterfield used to be in a band called DeYarmond Edison with Justin Vernon (a.k.a. Bon Iver) along with brothers Brad and Phil Cook, and Joe Westerlund, who are currently in the band Megafaun.
