So you want to know what kind of young musicians are coming out of Kent?
Here's a couple.
First Jessica Lea Mayfield who will be performing at MUSICA in downtown Akron on Saturday night with Among The Oak and Ash, Bethesda and Humble Home opening.
Tickets are $9 and the show starts at 8 p.m.
..and since it's at MUSICA they really do mean 8 p.m. I can pretty much guarantee that by 8:10 p.m. somebody will be making music on stage.
Anyway, "Chitlin'" recently finished recording her latest album dubbed Ohio again produced by Dan Auerbach.
Here's some Jessica Lea Mayfield recorded live at The Farm in NYC to get you (quietly and somberly) pumped.
Coincidentally, also on Saturday night, Mayfield's brother David who played on both her records and is also in the lauded indie-bluegrass band Cadillac Sky whose latest album Letters in the Sky was also produced by Dan Auerbach.
Cadillac Sky is performing at The Beachland Ballroom tickets are $15
Here's the band performing the song Inside Joke at Fan Fest 2009
It's a fun song and David Mayfield is the guy who jumps in the audience and boogies with the fans.
