Force of Will is a ferocious mix of blues rock and beyond that stretches the boundaries. Force of Will shall take you on a musical journey in a way that only Dave Fields can take you. Dave and his Fodera guitar will light your senses on fire. Force of Will, like all of Dave’s albums, is a dynamic excursion of love, fun, joy and life which will please the blues-rock lover and beyond.
Dave is a lifelong New Yorker and currently resides in the lower east side Manhattan. His musical roots stretch deep being the son of successful NYC composer, arranger & producer Sammy “Forever” Fields.
Fields has performed and continues to perform all over the US and the world. He enjoys a big Spotify audience as well as a huge social media presence. His awards include: Best Self Produced album 2006 at the International Blues Challenge for producing Back In Bluesville; 2009-2010 Mojo Boogie Award; and Big City Blues Magazine Happy To Have The Blues Lifetime Achievement Award.
