Today we’d like to introduce you to Leighton Fields.
Hi Leighton, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I grew up in a very musical household. My mother led the hymns at our baptist church, and my father was a rock and roll band guitar player. There were plenty of instruments around the house to spend time with. I joined a metal band in my early teens, a country band in my late teens, and had several side projects throughout the years of different genres. After living in the Deep Ellum area of Dallas, Texas, for 5 years and finding what I would call “my sound,” I am now building my life and team in Nashville.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I wouldn’t say it’s been incredibly smooth, but the struggles I’ve had have been typical of someone trying to make it in the music industry without sacrificing your art or selling your soul. It’s getting smoother!
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m a singer/songwriter/musician. I specialize in writing music that makes people think, challenge, and feel something. I’m probably most known for love songs/sad songs. I’m most proud of my latest single, ‘Church.’ In addition to believing in the message, it is the first piece of music that I produced, mixed, and mastered myself.
What do you like and dislike about the city?
My favorite part of Nashville is that even though it’s an ever-growing city, it’s still a small town. Unfortunately, my least favorite part of Nashville is probably a large part of what makes Nashville is Nashville. The constant tug of war between authenticity and the tourism charade.
