“If I write a song and my first thought is of how personal it is, I have to sing it. I have to share it with others so they can relate as well and it just helps me get some of my demons and dark secrets out.” — Jessica Lea Mayfield
Pitchfork says Tell Me, Jessica Lea Mayfield‘s most recent release, “matches and at times even surpasses her debut in terms of rueful atmosphere and unflinching songwriting, and Mayfield works to break free of her country confines and showcase her vocals in new, unexpected settings.” Uncut calls her work “dark, dangerous and utterly compelling,” and BBC Music finds it to be “a treasure of tremendous emotional resonance and focus.” Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear her live!
We recently came across this great interview that the extraordinarily gifted songwriter did with the folks over at Blare magazine, and wanted to share it with you before her outdoor Madison performance with An Horse at the beautiful East Side Club on June 30 (tickets here).

Early last year, this Aussie duo captured my heart with the beauty of the collection of intensely personal songs from their full-length debut, Rearrange Beds. (Read my 2009 interview with the band here.) Tonight, May 7, they’ll be performing with their equally talented friend, Kaki King, at the High Noon Saloon. I’m absolutely thrilled for the opportunity to see them play again, and I hope other Madison music lovers will turn out to welcome them.

We first told you about this adorable, and incredibly talented Aussie duo earlier this year just before they played a powerful show at the High Noon Saloon in March. (Read our interview with the band here.) We are happy to see that their well-deserved success has only grown since then. Check out their recent Daytrotter session to catch up with the band, and grab some fresh downloads.
