 ALBUM PRODUCED BY DAN AUERBACH OF THE BLACK KEYS

"With the edge and attitude that Kurt Cobain possessed coupled with a rich musical family history similar to Maybelle Carter’s, Jessica Lea Mayfield is the most exciting new artist in the scene today." — Scott Avett (The Avett Brothers)

The album was recorded over a two-year span in Dan Auerbach's home studio in Akron. With Blasphemy So Heartfelt features Mayfield on acoustic guitar and vocals, Auerbach on a variety of instrumentation and Mayfield’s brother (David) on upright bass. Dr. Dog’s Scott McMicken and Frank McElroy provide vocal harmonies on the track “I’m Not Lonely Anymore.” Says Auerbach of the recording experience, “I think she’s dark and moody in a mysterious way, not unlike Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.” He adds, “I’m just always really excited to make music with her.”

The 18-year old first performed with her family band One Way Rider at the age of eight. In 2007, Mayfield lent her voice to the track “Things Ain’t Like They Used To Be” on The Black Keys’ album, Attack & Release, making her the first guest vocalist to appear on any record released by The Black Keys.

On September 16, 2008 Polymer Sounds released "With Blasphemy, So Heartfelt" in the USA; the European release will be on Munich Records March 2009.

The album was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and recorded over a two-year span in his home studio in Akron, Ohio (USA).

"Jessica Lea Mayfield is the American equivalent of the wave of precocious female singer-songwriters in the British music scene. She seems old before her time, tacking lust, regret, infatuation and rejection with an all-too-adult ambivalence." - The Independent

"A companion piece to Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago, the album is an extraordinary debut from an extraordinary artist." - The Sunday Times

"What would strike any listener lucky enough to experience the bluesy tones of Jessica Lea Mayfield is the astounding level of maturity which pervades the 19-year-old's 12-track debut." - The Sun

"Stick with her lucid settings, slow moans and snakey charms, and a strong, dreamy spell takes hold." - The Daily Mirror

"This Ohio teenager sings about heartbreak with a bluesy conviction and a scathing eye for detail. She is an adept acoustic guitarist, albeit one who isn't afraid to electrify her arrangements." -The Daily Mail

"A fascinating and endlessly listenable contradiction." - 8.2 out of 10 - PITCHFORK
