Sorry is Gone: Jessica Lea Mayfield

The intensity of emotions and sounds on Jessica Lea Mayfield's new record come directly from her own life. Sorry is Gone chronicles her experience as a domestic violence survivor and the end of her abusive marriage with the fuzzy grunge she started to embrace on her last record, 2014's Make My Head Sing. She discusses why she decided to make her story public, what she worries about as the #metoo movement progresses and how she can't help but write from her own experience. It's a powerful story - something she wanted to share for important reasons - but it's also a sensitive subject, so there may be some material that is difficult to listen to in this edition of our podcast.
