Matthew Mayfield is an American singer and songwriter from Birmingham, Alabama. Originally the lead singer in the group Moses Mayfield, which disbanded in 2008,[1] Mayfield has moved on to a solo career. He announced the release of his debut EP, titled The Fire EP on August 25, 2008.[2]

Not long after the band broke up, lead singer Matthew Mayfield started playing shows centered on the Birmingham, Alabama area, usually solo acoustic but occasionally with a new backing band. Within a year, he independently released an album of acoustic songs, including acoustic versions of songs that previously appeared on The Inside. He also revealed that Moses Mayfield broke up mainly due to disagreements with the record label.

Discography[edit]

Between 2009 and 2010, Mayfield released five additional EPs (each one with a free song) : "Five Chances Remain Hers" on July 27, 2009,[3] "Maybe Next Christmas" on December 21, 2009,[4] "Breathe Out In Black" on February 9, 2010,[5] "Man-Made Machines" on March 16, 2010,[6] and "You're Not Home" on April 17, 2010.[7] After the 2010 SXSW Music and Media Conference, the music analytics website Next Big Sound ranked Mayfield at No. 6 in its top ten list of the artists with the fastest growing buzz at the event.[8] In 2010, Mayfield independently released his first full-length studio album, Now You're Free. With the release of the album, Mayfield has toured with such artists as Needtobreathe and Will Hoge.
