Northfield Lenox makes extensive use of media samples. Effort has been made to ensure any music contains samples that are either:

            • Licenced for use
            • Identified as public domain
            • Used with permission

If you identify audio that may not meet these criteria, please contact the site.

On review in 2022, the original download link used to obtain the  men’s choral samples used in the track “Oh You Expansive Domain!” back in 2016 cannot be identified. The track and any remixes will be left posted for now as the search continues to locate the directory. A caution to others using samples, keep track of them!


All images used in the album and track artwork are from original photos, with the exception of the archive photo used on the track “Phone Book Angels”



There is a link on the Northfield Lenox SoundCloud page to the artist WIRETOBA. This is done to clarity that WIRETOBA is not a side project of Northfield Lenox.  Any and all links are unconfirmed as are rumors of an intense rivalry and legal battles between the artists.

Listeners of Northfield Lenox may find similarities between the two artists on a musical structure and instrument level, but please be aware that WIRETOBA does NOT take the same care in production, consistency or ethics that you will find here. You are cautioned NOT to visit this SoundCloud page and to avoid listening at all costs.
