Thanks to Relevant for featuring Matthew Mayfield – after a great weekend at Music Midtown (he was actually playing at a local venue the same weekend) and having listened to those artists leading up to the weekend, I was ready for great new music. And this guy is it. He’s a southern guy who can really rock out but can also sing it out. Some songs have real edge, some don’t. I like the mix. His voice is raw – in an amazing way. And man, is he easy on the eyes.
This is from his newest album and is a little more poppy. For the rocker in you, check out Nashville, TN with Blue Cut Robbery. He also has some hauntingly beautiful ballads. Can’t wait for him to come back to Atlanta!
