Foreign Fields, two prodigal sons of Wisconsin, create humble folk songs carefully wrapped with celestial sensibilities. Brian Holl and Eric Hillman met in their musical infancy and fostered a special creative connection. Though close friends and artistic partners, the two have walked seemingly polar life paths, creatively converging on some unseen schedule to produce profound works of beauty.
After attending college in Chicago and Boston separately, the two reunited in Nashville in 2010 and while navigating the particularly bittersweet beauty of young manhood, they began weaving a musical tapestry. The resulting record, Anywhere But Where I Am, was released with humble expectation but was immediately met with widespread critical acclaim. After the tours and fanfare had quieted a bit, Foreign Fields have changed and grown, and they’ve begun weaving another tapestry. There are new stories to tell of love, fatherhood and personal expansion – new questions to ask about self, growth and God.
