New Year's Eve: The Mayfield Four - 12/31

     Oh hey, 2014. You're here already? I didn't see you come in... Time to catch up a couple of days, starting with New Year's Eve.

     Your song for the last day of 2013 is/was the appropriately titled "12/31" from the 1998 debut LP Fallout by a band called The Mayfield Four. Never heard of them? I'm not surprised. The band has been defunct for a while now, and they were never as big as they deserved to be, but you might have heard of singer Myles Kennedy's more recent project Alter Bridge, which sees him singing with the Scott Stapp-less former members of Creed. But don't hold that against Kennedy and The Mayfield Four.

     "12/31" is a powerful song that isn't heavy in the traditional sense of the word but that still carries a lot of weight with its earnest and impressive vocal performance. The Mayfield Four is a solid, turn-of-the-millenium alternative rock band that you really should be aware of, so check out "12/31" already.
