about joelton mayfield
Raised in small town central Texas and based in Nashville, Tennessee, Joelton Mayfield crafts hard-hitting alt-country that’s at home in dive bars and DIY venues alike. Mayfield’s distinct take on the genre blends Wilco-esque musicality with the dynamics and melodic edge of second-wave emo to create a sound all his own. This musical innovation underscores Mayfield’s deft lyricism, which draws a literary sensibility from the likes of Tim O’Brien and Flannery O’Connor and deals intimately with the tensions embedded in family, religion, masculinity, and love in the American South.
