"Measure the Sea"

Jeffrey Fields has plans. He’s not just another guitar-picking, pop tune-crafting, cookie-cutter singer/songwriter. There’s no fluffy, harmless, lovey-dovey sensibilities here – only songs that are fiery with protest, passion, and meaning. The political links on his website may lead you to believe he’s your standard rebellious young adult, but put on a tune of his and you’ll realize that there’s almost nothing standard about what Jeffrey is doing.

“Measure the Sea,” the last track on Jeffrey’s recently released MP3 EP, features powerful, driving acoustic chords, vocal harmonies, and an intensely personal air. He’s once again eschewed almost all percussion, leaving his string-striking and occasional tambourine hit to keep the beat. Like most of his songs, listening to it is like having a one-on-one chat with Jeffrey by a campfire or at a blatantly non-corporate coffee house. It’s intimate, homegrown, and profound.

He’s too smart to be a hippie and he’s too progressive to be some trendy shell of an artist who’ll be obscure in a month. Jeffrey Fields has his guitar and something to say, and from the look of things, that’s all he’ll need for awhile. - Delusions of Adequacy eZine


"Free Folk Society EP"

Jeffrey Fields has been a fellow nice enough to allow me the opportunity to hear a variety of his music over the years, whether it was his Dubbed in English band or his solo material. What I’ve noted is his progression not just as a musician but as a songwriter. “Free Folk Society” marks his best album to date. Structured and intent on ushering in the new wave of Americana and roots rock in the vein of such legends as Neil Young and Bob Dylan, “Free Folk Society” also enlists the help of Nelson Ciron and Leighann Rich. The latest Bush war in Iraq surprisingly hasn’t seen much of a glimmer of mainstream protest songs with the possible exception in Bright Eyes and The Dixie Chicks. That’s because the underground has been hogging all the great ones. Jeffrey Fields is the owner of some of those future great hits as the revivalists of the future look back for renewed inspiration. You have no excuse not to own this album as it’s offered as a free download! - Smother.Net

Bio

''It is wrong to expect a reward for your struggles. The reward is the act of struggle itself, not what you win. Even though you can't expect to defeat the absurdity of the world, you must make that attempt. That's morality, that's religion. That's art. That's life.''

-- Phil Ochs
