Jessica Lea Mayfield, a 21-year-old singer-songwriter, is forcing me to appreciate country music. Probably in the same way Sheryl Crow did, even Jessica’s nonchalant vocal delivery remind me of the queen of alt-country-rock.
Unlike Sheryl Crow, Jessica Lea Mayfield is far more experimental, her already excellent love forlorn songs are exquisitely embellished in their recordings and fashioned into great pop songs.
Tell Me, the title track from her second album, is succinctly described by fluxblog as,
a strange art pop composition with a careful arrangement that sounds like someone trying to find their way out of a maze of mixed emotions”

Her new album Tell Me is out on 8 February and is available to pre-order on Amazon. You can download her latest single Our Hearts Are Wrong for the price of your email address:
