    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.
