Pottersfield is an EDM/Future bass artist and songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Originally from Fresno, California, where she grew up devouring every line of CD liner notes, Amy Benedict sacrificed everything to make her way to Nashville to become Pottersfield. Once she declined a high-paying job in Austin, TX to fully pursue music in Nashville, there was no turning back.
Since taking the leap, Amy has been collaborating with Nashville-based producer Ian Osborne to create a rich future bass/electropop sound inspired by artists like The Chainsmokers, Illenium, Kygo, Gryffin, and Halsey. However, Amy is a songwriter at heart and is deeply inspired by the lyrics from artists like Sia, P!nk, and Julia Michaels. Combining the two elements brings a personal storytelling depth to future bass that makes Pottersfield unique.
Amy’s story is one of incredible strength and resilience. After an abusive marriage and divorce, PTSD and alcohol abuse took a toll and drove her towards music as healing. “I started picking up my guitar and plucking away. That led to word vomiting my feelings on paper and eventually the two merged and I wrote my first song.”
The name “Pottersfield” comes from the phrase “potter’s field”, which is a burial ground for unknown, unclaimed, or indigent people. The music of Pottersfield is ultimately for the unknown, the transients, and the people who don’t feel like they belong. It’s for the moments you just want to dance and escape, and for the moments you need music you can deeply resonate with.
“Empty Bottles”, her second single, placed as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Inspired by the loss of a friend, “Empty Bottles” was written to address the reality of addiction and assist in healing for anyone affected by its devastation. Gripping lyrical storytelling, captivating melodic crescendos, and punctuating instrumentation makes “Empty Bottles” an emotional and impactful delivery.
Pottersfield has plans to release more music soon, following her most recent release “Hours or Minutes”, a future bass track reflecting on the ache and drag of depression.
