Hailing from North Carolina, The Maggie Valley Band brings a raw approach to Appalachian music with heavy sixties influence. With the undeniable chemistry of sister-lead harmonies, their music is an eclectic combination of traditional folk tunes and band originals. Though constantly travelling with their gypsy-like family, Caroline and Whitney Miller have always considered Maggie Valley home; the place where they learned to love music. Growing up, piano practicing was a daily requirement. Daily requirements soon grew into passion as they hit the streets to street busk. After years of busking, The Maggie Valley Band was born. Their first EP, Bring Us Back, was released in 2015, and was quickly followed up with a second EP, Don’t Go, a year later. TMVB’s growing career has taken them as far as New York to Southern Florida as they partner with diverse acts such as: David Mayfield, Black Lillies, Indigo Girls, Lonesome Riverband and many more!
TMVB is currently in the studio recording their album under the direction of
Grammy nominated producer, David Mayfield. Mayfield has worked with many greats including, but not exclusive to, Avett Brothers, Jim Lauderdale, Black Keys.
This singer-songwriter, band leader, and Grammy nominated producer stepped out of the sideman shadows with his 2011 album “The David Mayfield Parade” his follow-up “Good Man Down” was self released and funded with a surprising succesful Kickstarter campaign that more than doubled its initial goal of $18,000. On the heels of that sucsess, Mayfield has partnered with Compass Records. A label that Playboy Magaizne calls “Nashville’s hippest alternative label”
David Mayfield grew up playing bass and touring with his family’s bluegrass band. As a teenager he established himself as a hot picker collecting national awards for his dexterity on guitar and mandolin. His knack for colorful performances was evident as a backing player in his sister Jessica Lea Mayfield’s band including their appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” He oozed personality on stage – a trait that makes him a natural frontman. He took his skills and personality when he joined the bluegrass outfit Cadillac Sky, playing sold out shows with British folk revivalists Mumford and Sons. Around then Mayfield began writing songs after hearing artists like Randy Newman and Simon & Garfunkel. Encouraged by his sister Jessica, & friend Seth Avett, to record his original material, Mayfield did just that, to much acclaim. Since that time he has toured almost non-stop. Conscious of not just being a musician, but an entertainer – something his father instilled in him in the family band – he certainly makes an impression live. But it’s the strength of his songwriting and musicianship, combined with that charm and personality that keep audiences consistantly lining up to join the parade.
