North Coast Singer/Songwriters hit the Stage at Nighttown!
Singer-songwriter, Tracy Marie is about to release her latest Studio record produced by David Mayfield. Together her and Mayfield selected 11 Tracks of her more than 150 title song catalog including the title track, "Beautiful Mess". Tracy Marie, a native of South Euclid has been performing original music as well as paying tribute to her favorite artists in and around Cleveland since the late 90s with local blues bands to more intimate solo acoustic performances where she accompanies herself on both piano and guitar. She has also expanded her travels from LA to New York City where she was invited to perform with Buddy Miles and in Nashville where she performed her own original song at the Ryman Auditorium.
If you’ve seen David Mayfield perform with The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Jessica Lea Mayfield, or at Bonnaroo, you’ve caught the charisma, the heart, and the comedy, and it's likely you’ll come back for more.
This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 album "The David Mayfield Parade" his follow-up "Good Man Down" was self released and funded with a surprising succesful Kickstarter campaign that more than doubled its initial goal of $18,000. On the heels of that sucsess, Mayfield has partnered with Compass Records. A label that Playboy Magaizne calls "Nashville's hippest alternative label"
STRANGERS, Mayfield’s first album with Compass, is a tour de force, stretching from the avant-garde to Mayfield’s musical roots, which are buried deep in the bluegrass tradition from a childhood of touring with his family’s band. Tracks range from the Celtic-inspired opener “Caution,” which features Mayfield’s deft ability in orchestrating complex instrumentation, to “The Man I’m Trying to Be,” a sharply honest song that is as dark and it is tender. Mayfield is truly a wordsmith, forging the mundane into the evocative in each track, most notably with “Ohio (It’s Fake),” whose innovative lyrics are propelled from acoustic beginnings into a pure pop finish, Mayfield’s trembling tenor rising above the grooving band. With the release of Strangers, David Mayfield is clearly going places, fueled by a deadly combination of infectious energy and songwriting chops that only come around once in a blue moon.
With a background in Pop-Punk and a love for Blues, she has set out to marry the soul of the old time standards with the power and presence of heavy hitting hard rock, drawing influences from artist like The Alabama Shakes, Kaleo, Shovels and Rope and Shakey Graves. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in Spring of 2016, an international award winning music video and a year full of active gigging regionally, Maddie Finn and her band The Whiskey Hollow are set to start recording a sophomore release.
