"...fast-rising duo The Potter's Field. We like to think of them as Michigan's answer to Gillian Welch and David Rawlings!"
THE POTTER'S FIELD: Press
“The Potter's Field offers well-crafted songs delivered with a distinctive style: a progressive edge to haunting songs, music that stops you in the moment to listen fully, and become immersed in the magic. It has been a pleasure including songs by this excellent group on the Folk Festival show in Chicagoland!”
(Lilli Kuzma, host of "Folk Festival" on WDCB Public Radio, Glen Ellyn/Chicago)
"The (Pleasureville) album’s original songs show real songwriting prowess. John Natiw's melodies, set to variations on American rural styles, are full of pleasing and unexpected turns. His lyrics are direct and poetic, and he's not afraid to look for beauty in dark places. Both John and Rochelle have fine voices, and their voices flatter one another. Their commitment to the songs is tangible, and the album's instrumental arrangements do just enough to enhance the songs without getting in the way. They get close to perfect with their song "Don't Look Down When You Go." The song itself is elegantly profound, and their duet singing is confident, moving and beautiful."
(Dick Siegel, Michigan folk icon, performer and sonfwriting instructor)
“I highly recommend the Pleasureville CD from the Potter’s Field – this is one of the best CDs I’ve heard all year!”
(Tom Saunders, host of FolkIt! program on A3 Radio, Ann Arbor, MI)
"The Potter’s Field writes and performs from a burning at their core. Watching them work, you can't help but be inspired. Like a burning ember in the room, they fill the space with light and warmth, raise the listeners' temperatures, then send them off into the night. I'll be carrying them with me for a long time."
(Mike Mangione, singer/songwriter, Mike Mangione & the Union)
"The Potter's Field performed a 40 minute set of originals and great covers. Their voices, brought together with some impressive guitar work, blend together beautifully. I hope you'll all get a chance to hear them play at some point. You're in for a treat if you do!"
(Bill Ivester, House Concert Host, Louisville, KY)
