"They're on to something big... their music is pretty" - Josh Wieker livelocal! Columbus
Fields & Planes was spawned in early spring of 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. They had been friends since their college days and decided to take things to the next level after they graduated. Their unique sound relies heavily on the back and forth co-lead singing of Paul Valdiviez and Fran Litterski. If your'e a fan of Feist, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, St. Vincent, Death Cab for Cutie, Imogen Heap, or bands of the like, then you'll love Fields & Planes sound. A majority of there songs are driven by catchy melodies and vocal harmonies that, on the surface, hint at a pop aesthetic. However, don't be deceived by the sugar coating, their songs often take unexpected turns, leaving you wondering where you'll end up in the end. Fields and Planes debut album "a place inside your mind" was released November 2013. Recorded by Jay Alton at Sonic Lounge in Grove City Ohio, "a place inside your mind" features 10 tracks. The album showcases their detailed chamber pop textures and range of style. On the whole it comes off as indie rock, but a closer listen reveals hints of traditonal country, afro-pop, and folk. The second album "Deeper Than Before" was released April 5, 2015. Co-produced and recorded by Jay Alton, it is their longest work yet and is teeming with beautiful and "intimate sounds that seem inches away from your ear" - (OSU weekly).
Fields and Planes are currently working on their third studio album and playing regionally. They continue to explore new ground, bringing their live show to new heights and writing songs that make you dance, laugh, and cry.
