"Mayfield Overcomes Miles"

"This dedication to a sound that is honest and unapologetic overcame thousands of miles to create an album that is both haunting and catchy." - Creative Edge Music interview

"The Most Personal Pieces!"

"You know from the way each line is sung that the passion and importance that went into the songs came from the most personal pieces of their hearts. This is what music is supposed to do to people, This is what Mayfield will do to you" - BuzzMusicReview

"Mayfield Brings New Life!"

"Mayfield brings a new life to the bluegrass revival happening in the indie scene, with this brave straddling of the line between back-country jailhouse folk songs and hard rock. The album is an ongoing ballad illustrating the life, heartache, revenge, and death of Bartel’s creation Mr. Thomas Apollo Mayfield." - Creative Edge Music interview


Still working on that hot first release.



Maybe it was the multiple brain aneurysms, maybe it was leaving the hospital, despite doctors assuring him he wouldn't live, but Ben Allen knew he couldn't take life for granted any more. This new lease on life inspired him to take a chance and claim his own sound and write songs from a fresh perspective. Blending the sounds of mountain folk music with southern soul to create the perfect balance of edge and depth. Passionately exploring emotions like anger, remorse, joy, and hope through lyrical rollercoasters and music that is both fresh yet familiar. Ben Allen is without regret fusing styles and sounds to capture the moment in music.
