Following a string of successful national tours and the development of their well loved unique musical partnership, Laurie Levine and Josie Field have just released their first co written album consisting of a collection of brand new original material. The first of its kind for two female South African singer songwriters, ‘Tigerlily’ is a rich blend of Josie Field’s deep, soulful blues tones with Laurie Levine’s velvet honey country inflections, with a strong focus on their elegant harmonies. After 16 years experience, nine albums and a dozen SAMA nominations between them, these songwriters have honed their craft on ‘Tigerlily’ with eleven beautifully constructed and catchy songs. Ranging from heartfelt folk melodies to sassy, soulful and blues textured tracks, the album’s organic production allows the songs to breath. The combination of earthy acoustic instruments such as banjo and ukulele with electric instruments such as pedal steel and dobro, solidify the duos new signature sound.
They will be launching the album with a nationwide tour kicking off in November through to January. They will be performing just under 30 shows in a variety of venues in six provinces. The show will feature a new set list comprising of the joint body of co-written work from the new album, along with some old favourites from previous tours.
