Madonnas in a FieldĀ began as the project of Forrest Marquisee. It has since evolved into a 4-piece band with a knack for country-pluckin’-twang and beautiful harmonies. The Madonnas play through-composed original songs about topics ranging from love, drinking, turkey dinners, trains, trucks, planes, and crazy floral patterns. Throughout the tunes you will hear songwriters Forrest Marquisee and James Henze’s droll sense of humor glossing over serious, introspective lyrics and surprising key changes! Madonnas in a Field are reminiscent of Gram Parsons, Jerry Garcia, Michael Hurley, and Jonathan Edwards, but very much stand in their own right by putting an unusual twist on folk music.
