Jessica Lea Mayfield's honky-tonk-angel voice was tailormade for late-night spins on a lonely jukebox in the middle of nowhere.Jessica Lea Mayfield and Daniel Martin Moore played Bowery Ballroom on April 1st, the second of two NYC dates for the pair who also played Glasslands two days earlier as part of a larger tour that is still underway. More pictures and some videos from the Bowery show, and video from the Letterman show, below...
Yet this precocious singer-songwriter with the cool alt-roots vibe seems to be everywhere these days. Rolling Stone and Spin pegged her as an up-and-coming artist to watch, and she recently made her network television debut on David Letterman's show.
"Normally, I don't get nervous playing shows, because I've been doing it my whole life," Mayfield said by phone last week while running errands in Kent, her hometown.
"But I was definitely throw-up nervous to play David Letterman's show, for two or three days before I did it. Once I got there, I relaxed. It was fun." [Cleveland.com]

Jessica Lea Mayfield @ SXSW
Jessica Lea Mayfield's new Dan Auerbach-produced album, Tell Me, was released by Nonesuch Records on February 8, and since then she's tourned with Justin Townes Earle, and the Avett Brothers, and played a few shows in Austin for SXSW, one of which was an American Songwriter showcase which is where the pictures in this post come from. Another one of her sets from SXSW is for sale on iTunes, and another is streaming at KEXP. I wanted to book her on one of the many BrooklynVegan parties as well, but it ended up not working out.
She is currently back out on the road, but this time as a headliner, with Daniel Martin Moore. They play Glasslands on March 30th (AKA TONIGHT) (tickets are still available) and, after a stop in Philly, Bowery Ballroom on April 1st (tickets available too). All tour dates are listed below
Daniel Martin Moore recently dropped In The Cool Of The Day via Sub Pop in January. Two MP3s from that record are above, and the title track is also below.
Moore's companion on the recent, um, Dear Companion LP has been at work too. Ben Sollee has a new LP, Inclusions, due in May and was SUPPOSED to support Billy Bragg on his cancelled tour that was supposed to be at City Winery this week, but instead will play City Winery as part of a Japan benefit on March 31st with Rachael Yamagata, Tift Merritt, Marshall Crenshaw, Dar Williams, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Nicole Atkins, classic pianist Taka Kigawa, and the New York based big band Morning Musuko. Ben will also play with Tracy Bonham at Cameo in Brooklyn one day later.

Dear Companion [out February 16th, 2010 on Sub Pop] is a collaboration between three Kentucky musicians: the songs are written and performed by Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore, produced by and featuring Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket and Monsters of Folk. Recorded in the first half of 2009 in their home state, Dear Companion explores their ties to the place they love and aims to draw attention to the problem of mountaintop removal coal mining and its impact on the people and heritage of central Appalachia.That's three true talents all bundled together for one potentially kick ass album. The first track, "Something, Somewhere, Sometime", is available for free download above. Think M Ward & Andrew Bird form a bluegrass band. Tracklist below...
A portion of the proceeds from Dear Companion will benefit Appalachian Voices, an organization devoted to ending mountaintop removal and finding a better way forward

Daniel Martin Moore opened the show. Then came Haley Bonar. She had the young midwestern waitress feel to her persona, but her performance was commanding and her heartfelt lyrics and arrangements left a strong impression. Following her was a set by A Hawk and a Hacksaw.Great Lake Swimmers also played a show Friday night at The Bell House in Brooklyn. More pictures from the Saturday night show at Mercury Lounge (1/10), including a shot of the setlist, below...
Then after what seemed like almost four hours, Great Lake Swimmers took the stage around 12:00am. They played a wonderful hour-long set with the full-on folk ensemble - banjo, acoustic guitars, harmonica and occasional mandolin. Tony Dekker's soft and emotive voice carried the songs, drifting in and out in the delicate arrangements. The highlight was the haunting "Moving Pictures Silent Films"; the audience swayed back and forth in a sincere fixation. They came out for a two song encore, "Changing Colors" and "Large Family" - Natasha Ryan.

DOWNLOAD: Daniel Martin Moore - Stray Age (MP3)
Daniel Martin Moore has a really sweet voice, similar to Sondre Lerche, and very warm and minimalist folky melodies. When he began, the few people in the audience remained seated on the side benches, but as the set progressed one by one they stood up and slowly moved towards the front. Moore was occasionally backed by two friends on a keyboard and mandolin, and his songs were interspersed with a self-deprecating sense of humor and slightly awkward attempts at banter with the audience - who met his words with silence and the occasional nervous laugh except for when Moore asked us if we had any questions for him. Someone replied "what was it like being on MTV?" He simply answered "the facilities were nice". Moore also mentioned that his music made people fall asleep, which i thought was very fitting for the perceived reception of his show.That review of Saturday night's show at Mercury Lounge (1/10) comes from Natasha. Kentucky's Daniel Martin Moore (he was on MTV?) was the first of four on the bill that also included A Hawk and a Hacksaw and Great Lake Swimmers. It was only this morning while I was writing this that I realized Daniel had an album, called Stray Age, that was releaesd on Sub Pop in October. You can download the title track above.
