JESSICA LEA MAYFIELD

Shares "Offa My Hands" Video

UK/EU Live Dates in April

Sorry Is Gone is out now on ATO Records

 

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.

Sorry Is Gone is an album that sees her evolving as an artist, whilst pulling no punches to dramatic effect and as she explains it’s a truly personal record;  “The whole record is about me taking my life back, without really realising it. I realised I’m the only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else.”

The 11-track record was recorded at Water Music and Electric Lady studios with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Phosphorescent). In addition to Mayfield, the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Seth Avetton backing vocals and keys, drummer Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth, Sun Kil Moon), bassistEmil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons) and guitarist Cameron Deyell (Sia, Streets of Laredo.) with additional production from Patrick Damphier (The Mynabirds).

Of the record, Mayfield comments, “I have to sing about things and write about things that have happened to me as therapy. That’s what connects me to other music I listen to. I want music to make me feel things. This is my inner dialogue, and my chance to get the last word.”
