The Stanfields

Download Presskit


The Stanfields are a multiple award-winning five-piece Folk’n’Roll band based in Halifax, Canada. Combining Rock music with solid nods to Celtic and Americana - they play what they want, sing what they feel, and leave nothing on the table. Formed in 2008, The Stanfields have since released 5 albums and toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, sharing the stage with Queens of the Stone Age, Flogging Molly, Frank Turner and Dropkick Murphys among many. Coming as no surprise to the band’s sizeable international fanbase, The Stanfields have taken a “predictably-unpredictable” turn with their upcoming recording “Classic Fadeout” (January 2020 on GroundSwell/Believe), seeing the band draw upon relatively gentler influences such as The Band, Stray Gators-era Neil Young and 70’s west coast country rock and infusing them into their distinct, swaggering brand of storytelling folk’n’roll.


“Too many of these bands sound like Pogues wannabes, but that’s not where The Stanfields are coming from. They want to rock very hard, honour traditional East Coast music, and sing about being from a place with hard-working people, the ones they grew up with, and the ones in their audience.” – Bob Mersereau, CBC

“(Limboland) provides the comfort that one needs for absolute trivialities and dispels the negative thoughts with a clearly audible resolution”-
