Our feature performer this weekend is highly acclaimed, SAMA Award winning singer, Josie Field!
After a nine year career, four albums and receiving six (6) South African Music Award (SAMA) nominations by 2012 including Best Female Artist: Josie Field has had one of the more interesting journeys through the South African music landscape.
She received three (3) SAMA and two (2) MK Award nominations for the album but has not stopped there. 1984 was released in early 2011 and was an instant hit with fans and critics alike receiving three (3) SAMA nominations in 2012 including the coveted “Best Female Artist” nomination.
2011 saw Field organize her own music festival, The Drake Music Festival, which she promoted, managed and ran herself. Three albums is a career for many artists in South Africa, but Josie has no intention of stopping anytime soon. Having teamed up with Laurie Levine (Americana singer songwriter) in 2013 for Side By Side, their folksy side project, which was dubbed SA’s Best Collaboration of the Year!
