Los Angeles, CA’s The Battlefield mine the American songbook to craft deeply moving, elegantly executed portraits of our shared humanity – embracing the beauty but never shying away from the ugliness. There's a deep rooted tradition of folk music with messages of protest, praise, love & loss, and on Tipping Point they continue this tradition, struggling through their art to parse out the how’s and why’s of human behavior and it’s consequence to the world we share.
Formed in June of 2013 by three talented singer/songwriters: Matt Ducey, Jenny Weaver and James Addison, The Battlefield speaks to the conflicts in our hearts & minds as well as the daily struggles of modern life. This world is a Battlefield and we’re in it together.
From the swampy acoustic guitar riff and deep harmonies of “Rise” and the stomping, clapping, slapping, tap dancing as percussion instrument and stride-style saloon piano throw down of “Don’t You Turn It On”, to the sad but beautiful pedal steel and piano waltz of “Into The Smoke & Maze”, the trio wield the sonic palette of the Americana canon with a deft hand.
A harmony-filled addition to the halls of American songwriting, Tipping Point is the sound of three unique voices and styles coming together to form one powerful piece of music. Built on a foundation of impeccable songwriting, the record is a timeless, yet undeniably modern, portrait of the human condition.
