    Jessica Lea Mayfield Announces New Summer Tour Dates, Including Additional Shows with The Avett Brothers
    Michael Wilson

    Jessica Lea Mayfield, who heads to Europe next week for shows in Belgium, Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands, has now added a number of new dates to her previously announced US spring and summer tour featuring music from her Nonesuch debut album, Tell Me. Her first set upon returning to the States will be at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on June 10, which will be followed by shows throughout the US running through the tail-end of summer, including six shows supporting The Avett Brothers and a set at the Belleayre Music Festival in Highmount, New York, with label mates Punch Brothers. See below for all of the currently scheduled tour dates; for more information and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Speaking of the sounds of summer, Esquire includes Mayfield's "Blue Skies Again," off Tell Me, on its list of "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To." "Because nothing says summer song quite like ooh-la-las, handclaps, and tambourines," explains Esquire's Andy Langer. "And because this one proves not all summer songs have to be shallow."

    Mayfield appeared at the SXSW Music Conference & Festival earlier this year, performing at numerous events, including parties for fashion designer Billy Reid & American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, KCRW, KEXP, and KUT. Of her official festival showcase, SPIN magazine praised, “With her 45-minute set at St. David’s, this 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Kent, Ohio, proved she has what it takes to be your favorite new artist ... [S]he’s tweaked tender country-rock ballads into a universally irresistible medium.” As a special bonus, a 10-song live EP recorded at the festival, iTunes Live: SXSW, is now available exclusively at iTunes.

    Since the release of her first album, With Blasphemy So Heartfelt in 2008, Mayfield has toured alongside numerous renowned artists, including The Avett Brothers, Ray LaMontagne, Band of Horses, Justin Townes Earle, and The Black Keys, whose Dan Auerbach produced both of her albums.

    To pick up a copy of Tell Me, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the complete album, plus the bonus download of a live take on the album opener, "I'll Be the One You Want Someday."

    Devendra Banhart will perform four ticketed, live-streaming concerts on Wednesdays this September, from four locations across Los Angeles, in a series titled OLA: Devendra Banhart plays songs in the order they were written. Banhart hand-picked the locations for their cultural, historical, and emotional significance: the Mountain, Bob Baker Marionette Theater, The Broad, and the Underground Museum. The concerts explore—in chronological order—songs from his catalog of ten albums. Moses Berkson directs the series; each show will feature one of Banhart’s frequent musical collaborators—including Noah Georgeson, Josiah Steinbrick, Gregory Rogove and Todd Dahlhoff—on a selection of songs.

    Lianne La Havas will play a one-off solo live show at London's Roundhouse on Wednesday, July 15, which will include new songs from her forthcoming, self-titled album and throughout her catalog. This very special, multi-camera, one-night-only performance will be broadcast via YouTube; tickets go on sale this Friday. La Havas will donate her proceeds to Black Lives Matter–related organizations. She has just released a cover of Radiohead's "Weird Fishes," the latest single from the new album, due July 17. The new track is "glorious," says Uncut; Mojo calls it "a show-stopper."
