Grammy-nominated musician and producer David Mayfield is a force of nature on stage. His energy and out and out enthusiasm for performing music are evident at every show whether it’s with Cadillac Sky, The Avett Brothers, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Among The Oak & Ash, or now his own band, The David Mayfield Parade.
The forthcoming self-titled debut album The David Mayfield Parade effortlessly ventures from classic AM radio rock with lush string arrangements to unadorned alt-country ballads whose lovelorn subjects evoke the outlaw songs of the early 70’s. It succeeds and endures because at its heart it does not pretend be anything but what it is, a sincere rock record.
This is reflected in every performance the band gives. There is no posturing, no façade, nothing but great songs and the instruments to play them. Mayfield’s ability to connect with audiences from performances at Bonnaroo and MerleFest, to NPR’s Mountain Stage and the Grand Ole Opry, have earned him the reputation of being the kind of extraordinary artist who goes beyond trend and simply delivers genuinely essential music.
