Jon Mayfield with Ben Strawn
Jon Mayfield is an inventive artist born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee. After years of touring the Nashville area as a guitarist for numerous artists, he has come back to his hometown to pursue his own music. While much of his personal love for music stems from the 1960’s and 70’s era, he strives towards pushing the boundaries of what an instrument can do to give his songs a genuine feel of the human hands, rather than the synthetic sounds of modern-day music. His first studio album, Magic Valley, incorporates themes of the love and fear that we experience with life and the human heart through staggering solos and rich chords that ring the bells of beauty. “We all fall off the mountain into the valley at some point during our life, but the only way out of the valley is through it. By going through it, we learn what it takes to get back on top and what it is that made us fall,” hints the name Magic Valley. The live show at Songbirds will consist of a full band including a drummer, bassist, and backup vocalists.
