Jessica Lea Mayfield
Jessica Lea Mayfield (born on August 27, 1989, in Kent, Ohio) is an American singer-songwriter. She first performed with her family bluegrass band One Way Rider at the age of 8. At age 15, Mayfield recorded her first EP White Lies in her brother’s bedroom, printing only 100 copies. One of those copies fell into the hands of Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. After an introduction, Mayfield and Auerbach hit the studio. A featured vocalist on The Black Keys’ Attack and Release, Dan Auerbach returned the favor by producing Mayfield’s first studio album, recorded over the course of two years in his home studio.

Delving into country, folk and soul, With Blasphemy, So Heartfelt is a collaborative project on which Mayfield’s sultry voice adds flair to edgy lyrics and melodies. With the help of her brother, bassist David Mayfield, Jessica Lea Mayfield’s debut includes cameo appearances by Dr. Dog’s Scott McMicken and Frank McElroy on backing vocals.

Sister of David Mayfield, wife of Jesse Newport.

"A bedroom-punk band from New York City, who — given their verge-of-tears verses — sounds like they’d be more comfortable hiding underneath a stairwell in upstate New York." - Spin
Punch Drunk Tagalongs
Punch Drunk Tagalongs
Punch Drunk Tagalongs come from a long tradition of bands led by fierce female singers. Anchored by equally vulnerable and ferocious lead singer Alisha Stahnke, the band writes songs that run the gamut of emotional intensity. The band has toured extensively throughout Ohio and surrounding regions, continuing to develop an easy chemistry. On their recently released single, Hazy, from their upcoming debut album, pulsing guitar work glides along and spikes, matching Stahnke's bursts of frenetic energy. Inspired by the grunge and riot grrrl movements, Punch Drunk Tagalong's live shows allow their frenzied instrumentals to come alive while paired with their intimate songwriting. - Cleveland Scene Magazine
