About Kevin Mitchell Music

"Playing acoustic guitar and singing about real stuff." The songs that Kevin Mitchell plays and sings have the feel of a far off Woody Guthrie era, mixed with a contemporary roots vibe."Prairie born and raised( Regina), Kevin Mitchell has been on the west coast (Denman Island) for 25 years. In the vein of Alt Country Roots, Folk and Blues, his songs are honest and engaging and performed with a unique style that plays like the band. Strong rhythms and uniquely original lyrics combine for a refreshing original sound. Recently he has stepped out onto the recording and performing scene making him what some may call an 'emerging artist"....Andhe has only just begun to explore his potential as a professional recording and performing musician. His songs conjure up vivid imagery and timely metaphors that speak to the social and cultural issues that face the planet at this critical time. His songs tell stories about people, places, and things extracted from his native prairie roots, to his life now living on a Gulf Island on BCs' west coast.
A prolific songwriter, he is on tour to release his 5th full length CD, (an instrumental) with producer/musician Marc Atkinson(The Bills) on Hornby Island. Last year he released hisalbum, In A Perfect World, produced by Corwin Fox at Hidden Well Studio. The title track was named Vancouver Island Music Awards 'Song Of The Year"( 2017) . His 2015 release, Home In The Sky, also recorded and co produced by Corwin Fox, and featuring some great players from the Comox Valley, including Doug Cox,dobro, Archie Pateman, bass, and Michell Keir on harmony vocals, earned him a nomination in Vancouver Island Music Awards for album of the year. Previous recordings include Bliss (2013) and All The Way (2006), co produced with Doug Biggs. For the last few years Kevin has been primarily touring in western Canada, as well as performing at festivals, house concerts, and folk music venues both in the prairies and in the Vancouver Island region. With yet another album due out in the spring of 2019, Kevin Mitchell is fast becoming a new voice in the Canadian folk scene. His goal is to create music that is true to the human soul, which will hopefully help people see beyond the matrix that blinds us to our true potential.


“Kevin Mitchell comes to us from Denman Island, British Columbia--Crow & Wolf's first Canadian artist! He performs country/roots music that is organic in all the best traditions of folk and has a groove that gels with the very best roots rock. His music bears the influences of Bob Dylan, Leon Redbone, Waylon Jennings and other greats, yet is thoroughly original and masterfully played on guitar and mandolin. His songs bear the stamp of country and folk's plain and simple views of life. "Crow &Wolf Music
