21 year old country folk crooner Jessica Lea Mayfield played a bunch of shows at SXSW 2011 and I was lucky enough to catch her at the Friday afternoon Rolling Stone Magazine Party. She’s currently touring behind her enchanting Dan Auerbach produced Nonesuch debut, Tell Me. Jessica is set to play Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn (Buy Tickets) on Mar 30 and the much larger Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan on Apr 1 (Buy Tickets). Sub Pop’s Daniel Martin Moore, who is currently supporting his new album, In The Cool Of The Day, will open both shows.

You can stream Jessica’s KEXP SXSW performance over here.

Last but not least, while I was in Austin, I met Ryan Rettig, the producer of the film Apart. The reason I’m mentioning this now is that the soundtrack to Apart features the Brian Jonestown Massacre song, (David Bowie I Love You) Since I Was Six, as covered by Jessica Lea Mayfield. If you’d like to hear that exclusive Dan Auerbach produced non-album track, it’s available for purchase on iTunes or
