The Paisley Fields

About The Paisley Fields: The Paisley Fields is a Brooklyn-based alt-country band. The Paisley Fields plays a mix of country, rock and blues. Their sound is Mumford & Sons meets The National with a touch of Patsy Cline’s heartbreaking twang.

Singer/songwriter/pianist James Wilson is a two time ASCAP songwriters’ award winner. Mezzo soprano Jessica Kimple has performed in operas throughout the world including the famed Metropolitan Opera House. The band’s drummer, Rob Knopper, is a GRAMMY award-winning percussionist with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. Guitarist and sound engineer Joe Kimple is finishing his degree in music production and engineering at the McNally Smith College of Music.

The band draws inspiration from musicians as varied as Dolly Parton, Tori Amos, Tom Waits, and Leonard Cohen.

“We are at once country, bohemian, and post-modern musicians,” James states. “We are inspired by current artists, but are also deeply inspired by the music we grew up with in the Midwest, as well as musicians from the 50s and 60s.”

The proof is in the music. The Paisley Fields completed their first tour that took the band through the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee. The band also performs regularly around New York City and has plans to tour in the summer.
