David Mayfield Parade
“Acoustic, beardy goodness.”
- American Songwriter
“Anyone with a craving for rustic Americana—frayed edges and all—will find Mayfield and company effective practitioners.”
“A massively skilled picker and singer with a knack for stagecraft.”
- Nashville Scene
“…his songs are sturdy enough to work in any format, because his tunes are that lovely and his words that understated.”
- Washington Post
“…a dynamic combination of music and comedy worthy of a traveling vaudeville act”
- The Boston Globe
“…the wild man of Americana!”
- The Independent
“this abundantly bearded multi- instrumentalist/songwriter impresses with a sound on the cutting edge of indie folk- rock”
- Spirit Magazine
This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 album “The David Mayfield Parade” his follow-up “Good Man Down” was self released and funded with a surprising successful Kickstarter campaign that more than doubled its initial goal of $18,000. On the heels of that success, Mayfield has partnered with Compass Records.
STRANGERS, Mayfield’s first album with Compass, is a tour de force, stretching from the avant-garde to Mayfield’s musical roots, which are buried deep in the bluegrass tradition from a childhood of touring with his family’s band. Tracks range from the Celtic-inspired opener “Caution,” which features Mayfield’s deft ability in orchestrating complex instrumentation, to “The Man I’m Trying to Be,” a sharply honest song that is as dark and it is tender. Mayfield is truly a wordsmith, forging the mundane into the evocative in each track, most notably with “Ohio (It’s Fake),” whose innovative lyrics are propelled from acoustic beginnings into a pure pop finish, Mayfield’s trembling tenor rising above the grooving band. With the release of Strangers, David Mayfield is clearly going places, fueled by a deadly combination of infectious energy and songwriting chops that only come around once in a blue moon.
