The White Mule Presents: John Wesley Satterfield with Mac Leaphart
John Wesley Satterfield writes and performs his own brand of American music, blending elements of rock’n’roll, country, bluegrass, and folk to create a unique sound that is reminiscent of his early influences.
When Satterfield was just 12 years old, his father began teaching him how to play guitar and sing songs by legends such as Harry Chapin, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Jim Croce. While he may constantly seek new inspiration, there’s always a hint of these amazing storytellers in his music.
In the summer of 2012, he released his fourth album Goodbye Whiskey, an autobiographical album produced by Mike Gossip of the the country group, Gloriana. He is now working on his fifth studio release with longtime friend and fellow South Carolina native, Ryan Monroe, of the rock’n’roll outfit, Band of Horses.
Mac Leaphart draws inspiration from The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, and John Prine.
Leaphart released his first solo record, “Line, Rope, Etc,” in 2008. It was named one of the best albums of the year by the Charleston City Paper. In November of 2011, Leaphart was sidelined from performing for 6 months, after neurosurgery to remove a brain tumor. He began playing again in the summer of 2012, and in November of that year, he moved to Nashville, where he hosts a songwriters night, “Southpaw Supper Club.” Leaphart released his sophomore album, “Low in the Saddle, Long in the Tooth,” in February 2015.
