Jessica Lea Mayfield

Alternative, Folk, Rock
She's country. She's indie rock. She's folk. She’s soul. She's all of them and none of them. Jessica Lea Mayfield's sweet sound has been at once haunting and soothing, a blend of different styles that she dubs "alt. music." Her 2015 album of Elliott Smith Covers, performed with Seth Avett, won praise from NPR's Bob Boilen. She came to wide public notice in 2007, when she was heard singing "Things Ain't Like They Used to Be." on The Black Keys' album "Attack and Release." She has also recorded a grunge-alternative rock album, "Make My Head Sing," which came out in 2014.

The Blasters

Rock, Blues, Country
The Blasters were formed in Downey, CA, in 1979 by Phil and Dave Alvin, brothers who literally learned their craft from R&B masters Big Joe Turner and T-Bone Walker. They started as a rockabilly revival, but have always been more than that. Punk was part of the mix, as are R&B, blues and mountain music. They released an auspicious debut, "American Music," in 1980 on the small Rollin' Rock label before being signed to L.A. punk label Slash Records, and their self-titled second album, from 1981, put them on the national map. The band lost its original songwriter, Dave Alvin, in 1986. Phil, the singer/rhythm guitarist, carried on, and the band currently includes two other original members drummer Bill Bateman and bassist John Bazz, along with Keith Wyatt on guitar. Their sixth and latest studio album is 2012's "Fun on Satrday Night." (By the way, the Alvins have worked together periodically since 1986, recording parts of soundtrack for a musical written by Stephen King and John Mellencamp in 2013; an album of Big Bill Broonzy's music, "Common Ground," in 2014; and "Lost Time" in 2015.)

Like John Hammond and a handful of other musicians whose careers began in the 1960s blues revival, guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Smither can take pride in the fact that he's been there since the beginning. This self-described "one-man band to the bone" uses mostly his blues guitar and his foot tapping to create memorable blues sounds.
