Melbourne’s very own six-piece soul outfit, Mayfield, are bringing us their long awaited debut album after the successful release of their 45inch single ‘On The Ropes’ on CHoi Records. ‘Victim Of Circumstance’, was engineered, produced & mastered by Mayfield’s own drummer Ivan ‘Choi’ Khatchoyan (Cooking on 3 Burners & The Traffic).
Mayfield fuse together soulful beats, smooth melodies and powerhouse vocals that give this classic sound a modern urban twist. Add in a pinch of R&B and a teaspoon of funk, and you’ve got one delicious combination of sonic flavours.
The band has carved themselves a strong live reputation as being a staple in the thriving Melbourne soul scene from their high level of musicianship and their ability to get people on the dance floor. The band is fronted by vocal powerhouse, Carla Troiano, who was also a featured vocalist on Melbourne’s ‘Women Of Soul’ that was a collaboration with other female artists such as Kylie Auldist and Chelsea Wilson.
Whilst working on their debut release, Mayfield have been spreading the groove across the festival circuit including St Kilda Festival, Melbourne Music Week, First Crush Festival, End of the Line Festival, Panacea Festival and headliners of the Stonington Jazz Festival.
Mayfield were recently invited to support ARIA Award winners ‘Sneaky Sound System’ at the 2016 Australian Grand Prix , Headline “Soul-a-go-go”, amongst many other key live events in Melbourne.
Mayfield’s debut album, Victim Of Circumstance sees the band further extending their talents by creating a new, fresh offering to Melbourne’s already rich music climate.
Mayfield will be celebrating the release of their album at The Gasometer Hotel, Collingwood as part of the Leaps & Bounds Music Festival on Saturday 15th July with support from Chelsea Wilson and Zoe K (with band).
