"a highly distinctive style"
"calming and centered collection of compositions."
“Really beautiful from deep ambient to ambient Americana...intense but contemplative intuitive interplay…”
“pastoral acoustic bliss.”
- John Diliberto, Echoes Radio (NPR,Public Radio International)
“It’s that sensation of awe-inspired tranquility that guides the music on this disc, one of distant horizons and airy, windswept melodies. The duo harness a palette of sounds that are refreshingly organic in this age of industrialization.”
- Downbeat (4 STARS - named one of the "Best of 2017")
"...puts together the unlikely combination of jazz, folk, ambient, and space music... the results are full of subtle beauty and unsuspected depths."
- The Brooklyn Rail
"Endless Field gives new meaning to the term “genre-resistant music.” It is at once ambient music, jazz music, pop music, and yet to call it any one of these things alone would fail to capture the breadth of this group. Guitarist Jesse Lewis and bassist Ike Sturm have crafted a musical dimension all their own. It is simple and complex, accessible and challenging, anthemic and introverted...Listening to its self-titled debut album is a 45-minute journey to another world."

Endless Field (Biophilia Records Artists) is a collaborative instrumental guitar and bass duo featuring guitarist Jesse Lewis and bassist Ike Sturm. They play original songs filled with intricate finger-style lines, improvisation and ambient textures. Drawing on inspiration from nature, the duo seeks to bring music to outdoor spaces, encouraging audiences to explore their own frontiers.
Endless Field has toured internationally in Italy, Norway and across the U.S., performing at Lincoln Center, the U.N., SubCulture and live on NPR's Echoes Radio. Volunteer activities have involved Riverkeeper sweeps, Habitat for Humanity, university residencies and river cleanup projects. They have collaborated with jazz luminaries such as Theo Bleckmann, Ingrid Jensen and Donny McCaslin. In November 2018, Endless Field produced a benefit concert in New York City for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), featuring world-class ensembles led by Catherine Russell, Dave Douglas, Camila Meza and Fabian Almazan.
Endless Field just finished recording a new album live in the Utah wilderness to be released in the summer of 2020 on Biophilia Records. Using a solar battery-powered mobile recording studio and National Geographic photographers and videographers, they documented their epic adventure and will be donating all album proceeds to the Natural Resources Defense Council.
