The culture of self-care and self-love has grown tremendously over the past few years. Along with that has come an increase in intuitiveness. As a woman, it has been empowering to watch others listen more carefully to their minds and bodies, and more important, live unapologetically. On her latest, Sorry Is Gone, Jessica Lea Mayfield creates a manifesto for living apology-free.
Romantic breakups have fueled many, perhaps too many, singer-songwriter tunes and albums. But on Sorry is Gone, Jessica Mayfield’s first solo album in three years, she describes, often in gritty, extremely personal detail, the effects of finally extricating herself from an abusive marriage. Not surprisingly, she returns to the full-blown electric indie rock she temporarily abandoned on her largely acoustic set of Elliott Smith songs she covered in partnership with Seth Avett.
