|“Paisley Fields brings a roguish cabaret-style sensibility, describing the often-solitary experience of many gay men with a knowing mixture of humor and sadness.” – Rolling Stone|
“Paisley Fields is carrying the torch for the next generation of country artists like me; the real deal, a true country badass, and one of my best girlfriends. I was lucky to have him play keyboard for Lavender Country. Put Paisley on your radar.” – Lavender Country’s iconic leader, Patrick Haggerty

|Paisley Fields is a singer, songwriter, and bandleader splitting time between Brooklyn, New York and Nashville, Tennessee. A touring member of the newly reformed queer-country icons Lavender Country, Paisley also played keyboard on their 2022 album Blackberry Rose.Limp Wrist is an exploration of where rural queerness intersects religion. Paisley’s family were devout Catholics, and he served as the official church pianist in his parish throughout his teens, playing every Sunday.|
|Today Paisley Fields has released the new single “Plastic Rosary”, along with an accompanying music video; a strikingly cinematic visual in the vein of Madonna’s controversial “Like A Prayer.” The video was shot and directed by Honey Davenport (of Rupaul’s Drag Race).|
|The songs on Limp Wrist are deeply personal, and often touch on what it was like to grow up closeted and queer in rural Iowa in the 1990s. “Black Hawk County Line” tells the story of Paisley being outed by a former friend his senior year in high school, “Dial Up Lover” is about logging on to gay AOL chat rooms to find other queers in the area, and “Plastic Rosary” recounts the experience of being told he’ll never get into heaven while praying the rosary. The most personal and biographical moment comes during “Iowa”, which recounts the tragic murder of Matthew Shepard, and the visceral fear he had to wrestle with since he was already aware of how different he was. The album ends on an uplifting note, sharing a message of friendship and hope with “Tomorrow Finds a Way”.The stories are his, but the feelings they convey – love, loneliness, lust, fear – are still universal.|
