Los Angeles, CA’s The Battlefield was formed in June of 2013 by three talented singer/songwriters Matt Ducey, Jenny Weaver and James Addison, whose unique voices and styles come together to form one powerful sound. Built on a foundation of impeccably crafted lyrics & melodies, their songs mine a deeply-rooted tradition of western folk music, with messages of protest, praise, love & loss. Their music is a timeless, yet undeniably modern portrait of the human condition - always embracing the beauty but never shying away from the ugliness.
“Los Angeles’ the Battlefield have the singular gift of imbuing the beautiful sadness of the country weeper with the soulful resolve of the Americana singalong.” -Elmore Magazine June 2015
“The Battlefield shows a consistent ability to merge formal constraint with emotional exploration. For a group that comes readymade to soundtrack a Civil War film the trio feel rooted in contemporary concerns. While rolling out of guitar-and-banjo porch songs, Tipping Point reaches for something bigger and gives The Battlefield a memorable launch. “ -Dusted Magazine July 2015
“Never afraid to embrace and caress the beauty in front of them, their vivid lyricism is pinned together with a powerful vulnerability and a piercing vocal.” - PopDust July 2015 [+]
