KIM FIELD and the MIGHTY TITANS of TONE
The Mighty Titans of Tone is one of the hottest blues acts on the Northwest scene. They are fronted by internationally celebrated harmonica player and singer Kim Field.
Field began his musical career in New York, where he worked with the Sting Rays, a group managed by future Grammy winner Phil Schaap. Returning to his hometown of Seattle, he teamed up with Isaac Scott, appearing on two albums with the legendary guitarist. Field spent several years fronting the Slamhound Hunters, whose performances and two albums for Satin Records, 4/1 Mind and Private Jungle, were strongly received in both Europe and the United States.
Over the years Field has appeared on bills with such rhythm and blues legends as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Gregg Allman, James Cotton, Otis Rush, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, the Righteous Brothers, Walter Horton, and Big Mama Thornton. He has appeared at the San Francisco Blues Festival, performed on New Year’s Eve in New York City’s Central Park, and was a featured performer at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival seven years running. Field’s songwriting has been highlighted in the soundtracks of two feature films, The Killoff and The Lawless Land.
For the Mighty Titans of Tone, Field has assembled an all-star quartet of the Northwest’s premier musicians:
Guitarist Steve Yonck has developed a sizeable fan following through his work with the Hudson Blues Band and Harmonica Playboy and the Midnight Movers.
Bassist Brady Millard-Kish has worked locally with the Hudson Blues Band and the Jet City Fliers and performed and recorded with members of G. Love and Special Sauce, Soul Asylum, and the Neville Brothers.
Talented guitar slinger and singer, Eric Daw, has fronted his own band, Eddie and the Rockets, and supported Henry Cooper, Harmonica Playboy and the Midnight Movers, and the Hudson Blues Band.
The band’s backbone, drummer and vocalist Billy Spaulding, has been the rhythmic linchpin for Sweet Talkin’ Jones, Hugh’s Blues, and the Seattle Slim Band.
Unsurpassed musical chops, a dynamic stage act, and a unique repertoire of original tunes and the best that the blues and R&B have to offer—that is Kim Field and the Mighty Titans of Tone.
