Like a bird to its nest, the hauntingly ethereal voice of newcomer singer-songwriter Wallace Field calls you right to the core of her heartbreakingly beautiful songwriting. No emotion is too sacred to explore. Trained as a journalist once upon a time, Field now uses this lens to create acute articulations of grief, growth, and all of the challenges and silver linings that come with change. The Valley Advocate draws comparisons to Joan Baez, and The Tonemill hails Field as a “marvelous story adaptor as well as a storyteller.” She released her debut EP “Crystal Mirror'' in January 2021 and is currently working on her debut studio album.

SHRILL PILL is a 4-piece rock band from Western Massachusetts. The recently released "Sparky" builds on songwriter Dana Osterling's past work with the Boston-based band CIVIC (Face Blindness, Things With Feathers) to explore spunkiness and listlessness in equal measure.
