Field Report is the creation of Chris Porterfield, who cut his musical teeth with DeYarmond Edison (the other members of which were Justin Vernon/Bon Iver and Megafaun). After their breakup in 2006, Bon Iver and Megafaun went on to success while Chris hung back in Wisconsin, thinking his career in music was over. It was really just beginning. For the first time in his life, he began writing his own songs, which he spent the following five years carefully divining, killing off, revising, and honing. In December 2011, the record was finally recorded at Vernon’s studio (with engineer Beau Sorenson) and was released on September 11th, 2012 via Partisan Records.

Having a uniquely direct connection with fans is something Field Report has already emphasized. They have music freely downloadable on their site ( as well as a phone number where fans can text a question directly to the band (414-215-9956).
