Jessica Lea Mayfield

Nineteen year old Jessica Lea Mayfield opens for The Black Keys, Friday night at the Granada Theatre in Dallas.

How did she score such a gig? Well, Dan Auerbach of the Keys is her artistic patron, and invited her to open their shows.

She brought along a full band, but her schtick is simple: art-school girl acoustic solo.

She was a cool customer, and shows a lot of promise. Her songwriting and arrangements need work, but keep an eye on her.
