  1. I really don’t get this trend of these monotone weak-voiced women. Caitlin Rose is another. If they appear a little looks, have a southern drawl and can hold the same note repeatedly they’re hailed as ‘indie.’ Be honest everyon-if you saw her and knew nothing of her image and association with JTE you’d say WTF!?

  2. *appear to have something in the looks dept., that is. My angst blinded my ability to have a complete thought, apparently. But when there are women like Chelsea Williams and Debby Clinkenbeard out there, I ask, WTF?!

  3. I have to say, this video seems to not be of Jessica Lea Mayfield at her best, but I’ve been going to see her live shows for about 3 years now, and she is actually really talented. She has a sultry, soulful voice that doesn’t quite come across in this particular clip. Just saw the above comment and had to stand up for her.
