KIND WORDS

"Waterfield has established a solid reputation in and around Seattle, it's well time the rest of the world latched on too." Fatea Records (UK), 2021

“Poignant and emotionally soaring songs that not only capture the jagged despair growing out of social and cultural division but also revoke the resilience of the human spirit.” No Depression, 2021

“Trouble In Time stands proudly in line with the many great Pacific Northwest Americana albums and artists like Brandi Carlile and Courtney Marie Andrews.” American Songwriter, 2021

"Trouble in Time is a record begging a quiet and in depth listen. Loaded with layered instrumentation buried deep, peeking out like a hidden treasure, only to reveal themselves in short but necessary, perfectly placed bursts." Alternate Root 2021

“Sincerity meets virtuosity. Delicate meets torrential. Piercing meets a wide net. When husband and wife duo, Tekla Waterfield and Jeff Fielder, collaborate, their two styles blend like the night sky and the constellations. Fielder, who’s backed up greats like Mark Lanegan, brings his seemingly effortless and endless talent to working with Waterfield, who writes gentle, encompassing songs that stay with you like sprits after leaving the family plots." American Songwriter, 2020

"Trouble in Time , in my mind, is an American Prayer and includes the lyrics, “remember unity, remember grace, leads us to a better place” followed by an indictment of our previous administration’s failings in these qualities. It’s a 2020 version of Bridge over Troubled Water". Nine Volt Heart 2021

"'Trouble In Time' is an historical marker, a time stamp, for 2020. Tekla and Jeff's reflections elicit a sense of purpose and calm reassurance from the weariness that weighed on us all year. It is absolutely gorgeous!" Mark Gordon, Seattle Wave Radio

Multi-instrumentalist/producer Fielder’s spent years cutting his teeth across the globe as touring guitarist for acts like Indigo Girls and Mark Lanegan, while Waterfield’s established a legacy of pro-feminist activism that pairs perfectly with the songwriter’s take on the Americana genre.

Waterfield & Fielder’s upcoming debut as a duo, Trouble In Time, finds the couple coalescing elements of soft rock, indie folk, and soul into a seamless sound. Jack Anderson, KUTX Austin Music Experience, 2020

"Like all good late night torch singers, Tekla Waterfield’s songs will break the hearts that need a good breaking, or help heal the ones already cracked.

 

You may know her from her tenure in Seattle’s Bushwick Book Club, a group of working musicians who, instead of discussing books over dark beer, craft song responses to them and graciously perform them for us. Or perhaps you’ve heard her as one of the vocalists with Seattle Rock Orchestra. That’s only part of the story here.

 

Backed by superb production from Jeff Fielder, Tekla’s songs on her second solo album The Curtain Falls glisten like old Seattle neon refracting through the raindrops on your no longer affordable apartment window while you’re considering if you should move, break-up, resist, or pull the cork out of the half drained wine bottle. So, yeah, there’s an album for that. You should take a listen."  Iaan Hughes, KBCS - 2018 Music of The Moment 

"Tekla Waterfield is an ethereal goddess on Nice Try." Day Ray, Dan's Tunes, 2019

"Tekla Waterfield is a singer-songwriter of fantastic talent and stylistic breadth." Lattney Brian Jones, Ball of Wax Quarterly - 2019

"Seattle’s Tekla Waterfield is a thoughtful, introspective songwriter who seeks evolution and to touch new creative ground with each project she involves herself with. Her latest effort is a 10-song album, The Curtain Falls, an inspiring and uplifting album with songs born from personal experiences that range from joy to sorrow, completion to confusion." Jake Uitti, Artist Home, 2019

"Over the last several years, Seattle has been bursting at the seams with massively talented singer/songwriter types and Tekla Waterfield ranks right up there with the best of them."  NW Music Scene, 2018

"The singer songwriter found her own essence within her poignantly palpable harmonies which she’s infused with the roots of her Seattle sound. Her sounds tend to bounce between Folk, Jazz, Indie and Blues through her discography proving that she’s one of the most eclectically talented underground artists around today.

With Original Lies, Tekla has created an anthemically catchy Pop hit, complete with an irresistibly catchy chorus that even Kim Gordon would give 5 stars."  A&R Factory - 2018

"The songstress has a way with her lyrical delivery, though she defines herself as alt-country, she flirts with Joss Stone-like soul flourishes in between her tinges of country twang." Monterey County Weekly - 2017

"It shouldn’t surprise you that singer-songwriter Tekla Waterfield is part of a book club dedicated to creating art inspired by literature. Take a listen to this indie-Americana musician’s lyrics and it’s all about the story. Sure, those stories are mostly about love, but like great literature, everything she does is honest. Jazz lines breeze through this music as does bluegrass-tinged fiddles. But the sound is carried by Waterfield’s unaffected vocals." Volume Inlander Music Festival, Spokane, WA - 2016

"Tekla is one of the most nuanced and individualistic voices in Seattle, and she heads up a band of incredible musicians that can mix it up in a cross-genre fusion of jazz, singer-songwriter, and jam band traditions."

Seattle Acoustic Festival, Seattle, WA- 2016
