The celebrated singer/songwriter Matthew Mayfield has released the music video for his song Indigo from his latest LP RECOIL. Indigo reflects the personal struggle of losing a loved one and maintaining hope for seeing them again in the next life. The infectious melody and poignant lyrics of this anthem of hope make for another landmark release for Mayfield.

“Went to a funeral and a baptism on the same day. Felt that God was real in both the good and the bad ways. Then, I started to think of you again,” sings Mayfield as he searches his feelings for a sense of release and connection with his long-time friend who has passed on.

RECOIL is a sonic and lyrical departure from Mayfield’s previous release, Wild Eyes. Wild Eyes was a collection of songs created over time that reflected different periods in Matthew’s life. RECOIL, by contrast, was born quickly and violently, the fruit of an intense effort by Mayfield to depict the good, the bad, and the ugly in the present world he inhabits. According to Mayfield, “making RECOIL was extremely hard—I had to drag the songs out of me and stick with them until they said exactly what I needed them to say.”

About Matthew Mayfield
Mayfield is an unpredictable artist who has spent the past decade releasing material ranging from haunting acoustic ballads to gritty, southern rock and roll. His latest LP, RECOIL, is a sonic and lyrical departure from his previous release, Wild Eyes. Wild Eyes was a collection of songs created over time that reflected different periods in Matthew’s life. RECOIL, by contrast, was born quickly and violently, the fruit of an intense effort by Mayfield to depict the good, the bad, and the ugly in the present world he inhabits. If Wild Eyes was delicately chiseled into being, RECOIL was hewed into existence with hammers and claws. According to Mayfield, “making RECOIL was extremely hard—I had to drag the songs out of me and stick with them until they said exactly what I needed them to say.”

Mayfield’s music has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Pretty Little Liars, Hart of Dixie, Ringer, Teen Mom 2, 16 & Pregnant, The Fosters, NY Med, Catfish, Royal Pains, Chasing Life and others. He has toured with Needtobreathe, Switchfoot, The Fray, Pete Yorn, Blue October, The Civil Wars, David Ramirez, Will Hoge, Griffin House, Matthew Perryman Jones, Noah Guthrie and many more.

With each new record, Mayfield has grown in his ability to evoke a broad range of emotions in his listeners. “I want to create melodies and lyrics that move people, that make them feel something. Connection is everything, and music has a unique way of helping people connect to others and to parts of themselves that they might otherwise be unable to access.”
