    Jessica Lea Mayfield Performs "Daytrotter" Session Featuring Songs From Her "Spectacular" Nonesuch Debut Album, "Tell Me"
    Daytrotter / Johnnie Cluney

    Jessica Lea Mayfield, who is currently touring North America with Ryan Adams, is featured in a Daytrotter session, performing four songs from her Nonesuch Records debut album, Tell Me: "Our Hearts Are Wrong," "Blue Skies Again," "Sometimes at Night," and "I'll Be the One You Want Someday." Tell Me was released earlier this year and was recently named one of the Top 50 Albums of 2011 by American Songwriter magazine.

    Mayfield's songs "are beautifully sober reminders that we're not always thinking straight and it's not always such a bad thing to do the things that you're not supposed to be doing," writes Daytrotter's Sean Moeller, who describes Tell Me as "a spectacular collection of heartbreak and innocence. These are looks at love that could only come from someone who knows that she's got so much to learn yet. At the same time, Mayfield writes about these lessons that she's learning in such honest and staggeringly sophisticated ways that it's hard to believe that she's only 22 years old ..."

    Mayfield's tour with Ryan Adams continues with stops this week at the Orpheum in Boston, the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto, and Cadillac Palace in Chicago, closing out next Tuesday at the State Theatre in Minneapolis. For more information, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Rhiannon Giddens's new album, Freedom Highway, was released on Friday to great critical acclaim. Giddens spent the day at Sing Sing prison, working with and performing for inmates as a part of Carnegie Hall's Musical Connections program. "Giddens is an immensely talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with the instincts of a musical historian," says WFUV, which named Freedom Highway its New Dig of the week. "On this new collection, she expertly and powerfully tells the stories of those who could not and bears witness to their struggle ... Freedom Highway is welcome, relevant and important." The Los Angeles Times says: "It’s a powerful collection made all the more visceral by the stripped-down instrumental accompaniment around full-force-gale vocals in big moments, and delicate pleadings when songs are at their most intimate."
