Still working on that hot first release.



Mayfield is a five piece band based in Minneapolis, MN. Characterized by their energetic live shows and original sound, Mayfield represents the unique culture of the city they were formed in. Their music draws on their hometown's independent hip-hop and rock scenes, tapping into the best of both worlds. 

Max Finke, Kevin Noonan, and Mario Stokes started jamming on the University of Minnesota campus in 2010. The three singular artists combined forces to start a collective known as the Comosapiens, based around their separate strengths of guitar playing, singing and rap. In need of a rhythm section and new musical input, the band added Ted Tiffany on bass and Brandon Ford on drums in the Summer of 2014. The new members contributed immediately to the group, bringing additional influences of reggae and indie and Mayfield was born. 

Mayfield’s first studio release was the single, Happenings. Showcasing the groups ability to address serious subjects, Happenings proved that Mayfield could balance the varying influences within the group to produce a cohesive and meaningful product. 

Currently Mayfield is as much focused on the process of the music they produce as the product. With most of the band living under the same roof, collaboration and communication are constant. This focus on collaboration led Mayfield to team up with local performer/producer Walter Chancellor Jr. to produce their newest EP, 'Turn to Dust'. 

'Turn to Dust' was written around the idea of balance. Musically, Mayfield refined their sound and style to produce an album that fully represents them and their varying influences. Indie beats and groovy bass lines make up the backbone of Turn to Dust while driving riffs and catchy lyricism complete the record. 

Turn to Dust is set to be released in July of 2016.
