"Wild Eyes" Available Now

Wild Eyes

I couldn't be more excited to announce that my new album, "Wild Eyes," is finally out today! Click here to get it on iTunes and here to get a physical copy. Stay tuned for more info on a new campaign we're launching in the coming weeks!

Matthew Mayfield has never been one to shy away from a challenge. He's quite the unpredictable artist and has been consistently releasing material ranging from haunting acoustic ballads to gritty, southern rock'n'roll since 2008. The Birmingham-based songsmith describes his sound as "a bipolar musical disorder," which seems to fuel his fire for the creative process.

His latest LP, entitled Wild Eyes, is a vast departure from his last full-length album (2012's A Banquet For Ghosts), but still maintains Mayfield's signature sound as well as an evident passion for his craft. "I knew I wanted to explore some new places in terms of the sonics," he says, "but I wasn't quite sure how to get there. There's never a map when I get in the studio. It's gotta feel a little reckless to keep me excited." Most of the tracks on the album were produced by Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Dashboard Confessional) in a small studio in the heart of Los Angeles' Koreatown. "Being in LA and working with Bill was exactly what I needed. As soon as we hit record, everything started to click and the all the question marks suddenly disappeared," Mayfield says.

Wild Eyes is ten tracks of hook-laden choruses, soaring vocal performances, and songs carved straight from the heart. It is an album that showcases sides of the artist that have never been heard before. Songs like 'Ride Away' and ''Wild Eyes' reveal Mayfield's knack for pop-sensibility, while 'Why We Try' and 'Settle Down' expose the artist's vulnerability in a fresh, uplifting way. "I never want to deliver anything short of passionate, convicted performances whether I'm in the studio or I'm on stage." he says. "I wrote these songs in a number of different head spaces, and I wanted all of them to make an appearance on the record. It's unfair to limit yourself in any creative setting, and once I realized that, all bets were off. I was suddenly doing things that sounded fresh, without having to make any compromises in terms of artistic vision."

"If you're going to be a rock star, go be one. People don't want to see the guy next door on stage; they want to see a being from another planet. You want to see somebody you'd never meet in ordinary life." Mr. Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, everybody. At the age of 69, he is still the walking embodiment of everything I have always loved about pure, uncut rock'n'roll. #Lemmy #Motorhead

Ready to celebrate all things Rock. One hour til 4 adult men/professional musicians gather to discuss the psychology behind Axl Rose's madness, the subtle intricacies in Dimebag Darrell's guitar playing, and the sonic differences between "Nevermind" & "In Utero." We're not nerds at ALL.

[video] #tbt The Artist & The Producer. A short film by Tony Lucido. I highly recommended it on the YouTubez. I shredded the final solo of "November Rain" while Moak tediously worked through the final mixes of the Now You're Free record in the next room. @paulmoak @anthonylucido
