Students learned about her first album Mercury that introduced her to the industry in 2006. “I write the songs so I’m not limited to genres or experimenting with sounds, we produce the tracks in a way that complement each song individually.” – Josie Field.
Everyone watched in awe whilst she played her ukulele and sang songs from her wide selection of albums. “It’s not like I decide to write a rock song or a pop song. The song demands a certain treatment and that is what I follow.” – Josie. Emendy sponsored Josie field with an Audio recorder supplied by MIDI Music and the event was a phenomenal success. “It is never easy to get going and if I can help out by continuing to create these opportunities, I intend to do so.” – Josie Field.
