If you’ve seen David Mayfield perform with The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Jessica Lea Mayfield, or at Bonnaroo, you’ve caught the charisma, the heart, and the comedy, and it’s likely you’ll come back for more.

This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 album “The David Mayfield Parade” his follow-up “Good Man Down” was self released and funded with a surprising succesful Kickstarter campaign that more than doubled its initial goal of $18,000. On the heels of that sucsess, Mayfield has partnered with Compass Records. A label that Playboy Magaizne calls “Nashville’s hippest alternative label”

“Acoustic, beardy goodness.” —American Songwriter

“Anyone with a craving for rustic Americana—frayed edges and all—will find Mayfield and company effective practitioners.” —Blurt

“A massively skilled picker and singer with a knack for stagecraft.” —Nashville Scene

“…his songs are sturdy enough to work in any format, because his tunes are that lovely and his words that understated.”
– Washington Post

“…a dynamic combination of music and comedy worthy of a traveling vaudeville act”
– The Boston Globe

Rockygrass 2013 “Best New Band”
In 2013, only days after their debut CD release, backed by an impressive $10,000+ Kickstarter campaign, The Railsplitters performed at Rockygrass and earned the title of
“Best New Band.” They would soon become a tried-and-true staple of the Colorado music scene. In 2015, The Railsplitters went full-time and released its second album, The Faster It
Goes. Since then, on the strength of their material —which carries enough mesmerizing bluegrass to appeal to the purists, enough freshness to land on the official Spotify Indie Bluegrass playlist and enough pop hooks to crossover to listeners who’ve never bought or streamed a bluegrass album—The Railsplitters have performed at some of the most prestigious bluegrass (and not bluegrass) festivals in the country, including Delfest, Green River Festival, Salmon Jam, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and Rockygrass; toured the UK twice and have opened for or co-billed with The Steeldrivers, Trout Steak Revival, Noam Pikelni, Aoife O’Donovan, Milkdrive, Dustbowl Revival, Front Country and more. The band’s fast rise from casual Colorado jammers to critically-acclaimed national artists can only be explained by their melodic songwriting, featuring compositions from all 5 of the Railsplitters, who all double duty on harmonies, their impeccable musicianship and the
songbird-like vocal of lead singer Lauren Stovall, whose expressive phrasing, spot-on pitch and perfectly-controlled vibrato make a voice that is both instantly recognizable and a throwback to the classic country/rock era of the 70’s. “The Railsplitters embody two of my favorite musical elements: high quality musicianship
and great original songs. They use both to make them, without a doubt, one of the best bluegrass bands to emerge in the last few years.” -Andy Hall, The Infamous Stringdusters “That high, lonesome sound has rarely sounded better.” – Jeff Burger, No Depression “Bluegrass instrumentation meets sharp pop aesthetics on the new album by Colorado’s
the Railsplitters, as you can hear on the tune ‘You.'” – Brice Ezell, Pop Matters “The Railsplitters are one of the most exciting bands to come on the scene in a long time. The complexity of their arrangements, the beauty of their vocals, and excitement in their
performance should put them right in the center of your radar.” – Stephen Mougin, Sam Bush Band
