David Mayfield grew up in a bus touring with his parents’ bluegrass gospel band, feeling the pressure of supporting the family’s livelihood as a child. Writing and performing define him, and he cannot see himself doing anything else. After two successful independent albums, Mayfield has just announced signing to the Compass Records label this week, with a new album in store for early fall.

In our conversation, Mayfield talks about the current and new albums and how they differ, confirms a Cadillac Sky reunion of sorts, and other tasty tidbits of his friends in music.
