John Larson and The Silver Fields: Constellation Prize

With the inclusion of keyboards player Mark Grimm Providence, Rhode Island power pop band John Larson and The Silver Fields have grown into a quintet and it shows on their new album Constellation Prize. The twin guitars are still the dominant, but now John Larson and David Richardson have an extra player to take care of the textures and fills. With drummer Jen MacPherson channeling her inner Ringo Starr and John Simpson fluid bass lines, the band locks into a groove for a set of catchy, upbeat songs.

Constellation Prize is a journey into the past musically, that could be mistaken for a long lost late Sixties / early Seventies classic. There are plenty of nods to acts like Roy Orbison, the Raspberries, the Shadows and of course Big Star. John Larson and The Silver Field are an act that celebrates superb melody as they sing about life's good and bad experiences, falling down and getting up again. Looking back, they have plenty to be proud of, fully confident that is OK to fuck up every now and then.
