CD REVIEW: Matthew Mayfield "Breathe Out In Black"

Breathe Out In Black
Matthew Mayfield is a true folk pioneer. The reason he is a pioneer is not because he is doing anything new or exciting that is so different she should be commended. Rather, he is doing something so natural and so well and he is doing it so often that it is uncanny. This EP, just one of many Mayfield has released this year features his signature lyrics in their most raw nature. His subtle delivery and an almost demo-like production showcases the natural side of his music. He is organic and his music is touching. The title track is one of Mayfeild's best and the EP closes with a live performance, featuring Matthew Mayfield is his most important setting.
