Still working on that hot first release.



The Nields have been making their signature blend of folk-rock since 1991. Sisters Nerissa and Katryna Nields make up the core of the band, and often perform as a duo. They are joined by guitarist/producer Dave Chalfant (Katryna’s husband), Dave Hower on drums and Paul Kochanski on bass. With 18 albums, major and independent record and publishing deals, performances with 10,000 Maniacs, The Band, Cake, Dar Williams, James Taylor, and the Indigo Girls, they have lived the Rock & Roll life. Since becoming mothers (each sister has a daughter and a son) they have gone on to broaden their repertoire with children’s CDs, a DVD and a book All Together Singing in the Kitchen: Creative Ways to Make and Listen to Music as a Family. The Nields have been lauded for their gorgeous, lilting, sibling harmonies, their wise, classic, folk/pop songs, their hilarious banter on stage, and their generosity and warmth in performance and engagement with their fans. Their latest album, XVII, celebrates a lifelong career whose aims continue to be a deep faith in community, loyalty, and the power of music to bring joy. They have just released a double album greatest hits collection (on vinyl!) called Haven’t I Paid My Dues By Now and are at work on music for a soundtrack to Nerissa’s forthcoming novel, Whatever Happened to The Big Idea? A tragicomic novel about love, music, life on the road and the power of telling one’s story.
