TORONTO – Award-winning, Toronto-based artist, trumpeter, composer, and world-traveller MIKE FIELD has a new video to accompany his latest single “Rocket,” that he hopes will remind listeners to explore, discover and follow their dreams, even if we are in a pandemic. The song + video will be out on Friday, March 26 2021 and available on all major platforms. For more information please visit the website.
Mike Field's "Rocket" diverges from his usual jazz compositions, and is an upbeat, fun, punk-rock, classic road trip song that features his award-winning vocals and powerhouse trumpet. It's about travelling, escaping from the mundane and flying away to explore, discover and follow our dreams, with an added bit of romance. It was written as a sequel to his song "Mechanic," from the highly acclaimed fourth album True Stories.
Produced by Field and his life partner Maya Dornig, and filmed on location in the desert near Las Vegas, Mike Field’s video for the pop-punk firecracker “Rocket” (which could just as well be called “rock it”), finds him joyously strumming and singing against colourful backdrops and unique rock formations.
