“Fascinating and endlessly listenable…positively kaleidoscopic, both musically and emotionally…” —Pitchfork

“A small voice and a steady gaze are the weapons of choice for Jessica Lea Mayfield…full of barbed confessions and bittersweet confections, songs that come on softly but leave behind a disquieting feeling.” —The New York Times
“Oblivious,” the first single from Jessica Lea Mayfield’s highly anticipated new album, Make My Head Sing…, premiered today at Rolling Stone. Of the track, Rolling Stone praises, “Mayfield's echo-laden bluegrass vocals mesh with scorching electric guitar lines to render remarkable results…” and goes on to assert, “…[an] innovative, genre-bending number…”

Out April 15 on ATO Records, the new album was co-produced by Mayfield and her collaborator, bassist and husband Jesse Newport and was recorded at Nashville’s Club Roar studio. Of the new music Mayfield comments, “The whole record is just me and Jesse and my drummer Matt Martin. I think a lot of my favorite bands are guitar, bass and drums. I wanted to simplify things. Bands are so big these days, I wanted to get in the studio and make a rock record and hear real guitar tones and something heavy.”

Make My Head Sing… follows Mayfield’s 2011 release, Tell Me, which was produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and was described by Rolling Stone, which named her an Artist to Watch, as “a disarming collision of stark country balladry, dynamic alternative rock and arty electronic pop.” Additionally, the Associated Press asserted, “Tell Me is the portrait of a precocious girl growing into self-assured womanhood and a producer reaching the peak of his powers. It is a dark and moody album, full of delights throughout, and if it doesn’t make Mayfield a star, that too will be heartbreaking,” while Spin Magazine included Mayfield in their “The Next Big Things: 11 Artists You Must Hear in 2011” feature, calling her a “smart-ass country-rock ingénue.” She also made her network television debut on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” performing the album’s first single, “Our Hearts Are Wrong,” which NPR Music praised as “…genuinely moving”
