"The golden-throated troubadour, who originally hails from Birmingham, AL, will win you over by the first verse. We guarantee it." - American Songwriter Magazine
With a fresh perspective on the art of sound and the craft of melody, Hugh Mitchell is raising the stakes with his newest recordings. Due out in January 2017, Hugh has recorded his next EP with former Wilco and Uncle Tupelo drummer, Ken Coomer. This album is both orchestral and Southern. A style that captures the gritty, intimate, and soulful writing that Hugh is known for.
“My new songs are a ‘hello’ for this years conversation. 2017 is a new start for me. I'm doing things with live shows and recordings & sound that I've always wanted to do. Ken and I focused on capturing what it feels like to be in a room with me. That was a great starting point."
Hugh has toured nationally since 2006 as a side man for other artists in venues ranging from bars, to arenas, to stadiums. Hugh and fellow singer Charlie Mars have co-written the title track "Beach Town" for Charlie's upcoming 2017 release.
This year sees Hugh touring the Southeast from Florida to Texas.
