TEKLA WATERFIELD – NEW SKIES is at Top 200 and Folk Radio Now!!!

My history with Tekla goes back a few years, to my second year as a Seattle resident where we were actually housemates! Lucky me!! I would have wanted to know her and work with her as a musician anyway, so I really caught the prime end of that deal getting that kinda “in”. She’s a really wonderful person and her music really communicates her warm, loving, empathetic spirit, in styles that range from folk/country to pop/rock. If you don’t like the track you’re listening to, try the next, there’s a lot going on in here! Her husband is also heavily involved with this album’s production: that’s Jeff Fielder, who’s played in the touring bands of Mark Lanegan and Amy Ray/Indigo Girls among many others. Really good stuff!! I’m going for Folk charts along with Top 200 ones for this beauty!




Coming off the heels of the success of her earlier 2021 release, Trouble In Time (a collaboration with husband and musical partner, Jeff Fielder), New Skies encompasses Tekla Waterfield’s signature blend of stripped down folk (“Can’t Move On”), classic country (“Love Comes Along”, a duet featuring Luke Abbott), folk/pop (album title track, “New Skies”), pop/rock (“Come On Jane”, “Mr. Browntown”), and R&B/soul-tinged (“Yesterday Was A Bad Day” & “Lie Lie Lie”): resulting in a diverse sound unified by Tekla’s distinctively smooth vocals and point-of-view storytelling. Brimming with playful, contemplative, and uplifting energy, New Skies is Waterfield’s third solo LP, with plenty of help from Pacific-Northwest talent including Jeff Fielder, Andy Stoller & Daniel Walker of Heart, Ryan Burns & Eric Eagle, with recording and production made possible by the Artist Residency Programs at Jack Straw Cultural Center.
Seattle-based Tekla Waterfield self-released one album before establishing a life-changing partnership with her powerhouse multi-instrumentalist/producer husband, Jeff Fielder (Mark Lanegan, Amy Ray, Indigo Girls). The two have co-produced Waterfield’s second solo LP, The Curtain Falls, and their debut duo record, Trouble In Time, both of which received radio play nationally and internationally as well as critical acclaim. Fielder returns on New Skies as producer, multi-instrumentalist and more.
