This past Valentine's Day, Field Report played their first headlining show in Milwaukee in a very long time. Frontman Chris Porterfield announced that during the concert, Field Report will debut a new video for their song "I Am Not Waiting Anymore." Porterfield mentioned that the video is very powerful and emotional. Now the video can be seen by everyone thanks to NPR Music, and Porterfield was right about it being very moving. The video, which was shot entirely in Milwaukee, was directed by Manny Marquez. The video tells a tale of a homeless man's journey from hopelessness to redemption.
"Director Manny Marquez says he was inspired in part by the empty factories and old houses he'd see while riding his bike each day around Milwaukee and listening to Field Report. "I don't live in Milwaukee," he says in a note. "So I really started noticing the city through listening to this album."
Watch the beautiful and very powerful video below.
