Jessica Lea Mayfield

A folk-influenced songwriter from Kent, Ohio, Jessica Lea Mayfield began performing with her family's bluegrass band, One Way Rider, at the age of eight. She started writing her own music three years later, often accompanying her older brother at open-mike performances in the Ohio area, before landing a weekly solo gig at a local bar. At 15 years old, Mayfield took to her brother's bedroom to record a batch of her own acoustic songs, which ran the gamut from raw, aggressive folk tunes to world-weary country ballads. The recordings made up the track list of White Lies, her independent debut, which she released under the name Chittlin'.

Only 100 copies of White Lies were printed, one of which wound up in the hands of Dan Auerbach, frontman of the Ohio-based blues outfit the Black Keys. With Auerbach's help, Mayfield began attracting a wider audience. She made a guest appearance on the Black Keys' 2008 album Attack & Release, singing backup vocals on the track "Things Ain’t Like They Used to Be," and spent a pair of years recording her official debut album, With Blasphemy So Heartfelt, in Auerbach's home studio. Released in September 2008 by Polymer Sounds, the album was a critical success. Mayfield supported its release by going on tour, serving as an opening act for bands like the Avett Brothers, Cake, Lucero, and the Black Keys.

Mayfield's touring commitments stretched into 2009, when she opened 11 concerts for Ray Lamontagne and performed at the annual Bonnaroo Festival that summer. Continuing her association with Dan Auerbach, she also appeared on the frontman's first solo record, Keep It Hid, and enlisted his help in recording her second album. Tell Me, which doubled as her first release for Nonesuch Records and was released in early 2011.

Mayfield's follow-up, Make My Head Sing, was a complete musical switch. Recorded at Nashville's Club Roar Studio with drummer/engineer Matt Martin and co-produced her husband Jesse Newport, the album was a scorching, electric, rock & roll set. It was issued by ATO in April of 2014. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

I fell in love with her music through my college radio station, Revolution 91.7 at WKU, and later had the chance to spend time with her through a friend connection. She is a genuinely sweet lady with a love for her friends, family, and dogs :) Her music is melancholy, but she seems to be quite the opposite!
It's so great to see someone I knew doing so well and writing brilliant songs. I can't wait to hear what's next.

I saw her at Stubb's in Austin open up for the Black Keys and Black Angels and her set was actually the most most enjoyable and memorable. That says a lot because I am a huge Black Keys fan!

I'll never forget the days when my friends and I used to get to see her play solo shows at Europe Gyro in Kent. She is amazing. Her family is great too. Wonderful person and a better musician. check out her chittlin CD if you can find it.
