Age: 40
2006 marks the year Kevin’s music and debut album “ALL THE WAY” hits the road across B.C. and Canada. Prairie born and raised, the acoustic roots music of Kevin Mitchell is now coming out on the west coast of Canada. Kevin writes, sings, and performs with guitar, mandolin, and harmonicas, in the vein of Alt Country meets Roots. Combine that with a strong sense of the blues and you get fast driving, fence-smashing rhythms that can stop on a dime, with a finger-picking style that plays like the band. Call it Canadian Alt-Country, Roots, or Folk - one thing is sure, it’s unique, addictive, and quite different than anything you’ve heard before. “Rhythm is my mantra, it is like flying to me, and it has never let me down yet!” Kevin’s contemporary brand of original Alt-Country is infectious and inspiring, and is catching the attention of music lovers wherever he plays. From the bingo halls of Moose-Jaw to the west coast clear-cuts, his songs inspire reflection and paint a unique Canadian perspective. Kevin gets your attention and keeps it, with a bold and commanding style that gets down to the roots!
It began on the bald headed prairies, when at the age of 12 he was given an ancient guitar and was booked in for lessons at Sigs Guitar Studio in Regina, Sask. The decision to take music seriously began later in life, when a move to northern Saskatchewan immersed him into the local folk scene, where live music was a daily ritual, and large musical circles went far into the night. He mentored under the many talented musicians in the area, like Humphrey & The Dumptrucks and Crooked Creek, discovering the gift of acoustic folk music.
After years of fronting various dance bands on Denman island B.C, Kevin has taken some time to launch his solo career, taking these gifts to a new level, communicating passionately with his own voice and style. He plays a variety of venues on Vancouver Island, and is in the process of booking B.C tours and festivals, hoping to get wider exposure with music fans and the music industry. His early musical influences include Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, Muddy Waters, and The Rolling Stones, among others. His sound lies somewhere between Fred J Eaglesmith, John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett and Jack Johnson. He communicates his music confidently, with humor and passion, on the highest caliber of handcrafted instruments, and with the help of his ‘Boss Loop Station’, Kevin is able to feature his lead playing in his solo performance, giving it a full multi-dimensional flavour.
It is just a matter of time before his new CD, “ALL THE WAY” lands in your CD player, and it may be hard to get the songs out of your head once you hear them! But hey, music speaks louder than words, so check out the free music samples and more at www.kevinmitchell.ca and hear for yourself!
