Next appearances on The Blues Train:No upcoming shows
Ben Mitchell is a singer-songwriter from Healesville, Victoria writing and performing emotionally raw and intimate acoustic country-blues and alternative-folk songs with influences from Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, early Elvis and Charley Pride among classic others.
His fourth and latest album, Slow Is The New Fast is getting rave reviews with The Music calling it “his finest album”. Described as ‘soulful country folk’ it was recorded with multi ARIA award winner, Matt Walker in an analogue studio high in the hills on the outskirts of Melbourne.
“A swampy shimmer underlies acoustic guitar and the wonderful voice of Ben Mitchell as he sings of ignoring the things you can’t control in life and giving into the flow and destiny of existence….The elements are all there, reduced to their essential components of rhythm, mood and tone. His voice is the real drawcard though. Warm and yearning, with just that right amount of ache and sweet serenade. Soulful country folk.” POST TO WIRE
“His fourth and finest album. Co-produced by Matt Walker, the sound is intimate and warm…This is a gentle record but it leaves a lasting impression.” Jeff Jenkins, THE MUSIC
