Boston based Fire in the Field burns with a passion anointed in oils of the old gods. They slide and pump in a tight psychedelic rockn'roll soul-soiree. The tunes Moore (vocals/guitar) has written are spun through gargantuan blues swag, deep pocket, and searing guitar riffs like you've never heard.
Some compare them to The Band of Gypsys, The Doors, The Black Crowes, Led Zeppelin; but the new album is an original statement, a new rock for a new time.
Mike Moore (vocals/songwriting/lead guitar/keys/guitar), John Santarelli (drums), Jeff Badolato (bass), and Andrew Blowen (keys & backing vocals) converged at Oil Can Studios in Rollinsford, NH to track live in the room allowing the red light to soak up all the eclectic magic through years of growing and working together.
Mike Moore has found his role as songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, and front man. Moore and the band officially lit the fire May 3rd, 2014 at The Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, MA. With the album released and Boston venues clear under their belts: TT & The Bears, Middle East (up & down), Church of Boston, Sally O'Briens, Bill's Bar, The Hard Rock Cafe, Oliver's, The Paradise, The Paradise Lounge (RIP) the band is excited to penetrate the markets of NYC this October, and is still hot with fire after the Salisbury, NC show this past July.
The new album:
'Gypsy Tea Room' is a concept album meant to be played loud. There lies a keyhole somewhere above, around, inside, all leading... well, you'll see. The songs and stories peek into a once black and white existence, now multicolored in horror and exaltation. The band grooves with blood and sweat as the seam to their vision quest; let them take you to the entrance of the tea room. The mysteries it holds are for you and your ears to discover.
"Bridging the gap between Vintage Rock N Roll and a new psychedelic rock approach, Fire in the Field has created an accessible sound of music that's all their own. Led by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Mike Moore, the band takes their live shows to levels unseen since the Rock Bombast of the 70's and early 90's leaving crowds hollering for more and cheering until the lights at the venue come up. Front man Moore's stage presence is that of a true professional, an old soul commanding the stage with power and emotion and having his fans eating out of the palm of his hands, and his hands are another story. Seeing Mr. Moore perform on the guitar is like nothing I have ever seen. The instrument is an extension of his body and soul, able to manipulate any style of music from jazz, funk and reggae to blues, jam and Rock N Roll. I have personally worked with dozens of well known guitarists some once considered the best in the business but none can touch the incredible range and dynamics that Mike is able to reach on and off the stage."
-Mark Kaye of Hear Now Live, Boston's Live Music Producer
"Fire in the Field will melt your mind with whaling lead guitar, tight transitions, and soulful vocals. These boys are what Rock N' Roll is all about...from cigarettes, to whiskey, to an epic stage presence that is backed by a gang of nasty players."
-Michael Bernier, host of Evolvement Radio
