Band of the Week: David Mayfield Parade

by Autumn Barker

This week’s Band of the Week is the folk/Americana band David Mayfield Parade, whose combination of typical folk music infused with a bluegrass twang is similar to bands like The Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons. The band, which will be playing at High Dive on April 18, is led by frontman David Mayfield, whose charismatic stage presence and vocal abilities make for an entertaining performance.

Mayfield is no stranger to the stage. He’s performed at well-known festivals like Bonnaroo and with many big name bands such as the aforementioned  Mumford & Sons. Mayfield grew up around the music scene, playing bass and touring with his family’s bluegrass band, and establishing himself as a hot picker during his teen years, winning several national awards.

He began to create a name for himself through his performances as a backing member of his sister, Jessica Lea Mayfield’s, band. His charisma and charm on stage were early indications that he was a natural frontman. In 2010, he joined the bluegrass band Cadillac Sky and went on tour with the British folk-rock band, Mumford & Sons. While on tour Mayfield began writing his own songs and later released his album The Parade.

On April 1, Mayfield released Good Man Down, his newest album, which features notable guests like Seth Avett of The Avett Brothers, country star Dierks Bentley and bluegrass band Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver.

On his Facebook page, Mayfield compares Good Man Down to Indiana Jones, saying that his first album, like “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, was more lighthearted and fun with nods to the past. Meanwhile, his second album, like “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” is darker, creepier, and more bizarre, it says. But while his second album has more bluegrass twang than The Parade, each track has something different to offer that will keep the listener continuously entertained.

This show is certain to be one to remember because Mayfield’s musical genius and colorful stage presence will not disappoint. Local band Leela & the Rams and the Orlando-based duet Kaleigh Baker & Nate Anderson will also be performing. The doors open at 9 p.m., and tickets, which can purchased online or locally at Hear Again Music, are $8 in advance or $10 at the door.
