JESSICA LEA MAYFIELD
“She doesn’t hide or hold back—a raw, fierce attitude runs through the confessional stanzas.” – NPR Music
“a best possible blend of odd and good” – Mojo ****
“Ohio-native channels rage into indie-grunge gold.” – Q ****
“these songs convey a visceral dread though crashing guitars” – Uncut 8/10
Set to tour the UK next month in support of her latest album, Sorry Is Gone, Jessica Lea Mayfield has shared the video for “Offa My Hands“.
Sorry Is Gone, released in the Autumn of 2017 via ATO Records, is a raw document of a woman in progress; one weathering cruel storms but finally able to blame the rain itself for the flood. Written as the truth of her own poisonous marriage unfolded before her eyes, Sorry Is Gone is a record of permission. Permission to create freely, to escape what is no longer safe and to stop bearing responsibility for things done to her, not by her. This is none more evident than in the video for “Offa My Hands“, filmed at The Salton Sea, dead fish and all.
“What a dream to make this strange video in such an interesting place,” says JLM.

Jessica Lea Mayfield might make some people uncomfortable with the level of honesty she projects on her latest LP, Sorry Is Gone, but she’s not going to apologise – for that, or for anything else on her complex, confessional fourth album. Recorded with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr.), Sorry Is Gone has gained accolades from NPR Music, Mojo, Q, Uncut and more.
