Field Sessions are intimate, one-take music videos that help you experience songs in a new light, connect you to the artists you love, and to songs that capture you. The audio and video are as raw as possible to invite you into a space where you can just experience the heart behind each performance. No flashy setup, no big-budget production. 

It's not meant to be perfect. It's meant to be real, up-close, and transparent. The way music and life should be.
