My name is Chris Mitchell but all my friends call me "Mitchell"
The reason being, when I grew up there were 7 other people named Chris. Who were all around the same age and went to the same school, so... everyone was called by their last names. Later it became a respect thing.
I have been playing music for
20 yrs or so now and with each new project and album , I feel like things are coming closer to how they are supposed to be and sound. I've always been a song writer, for as long as I can remember and love doing so. I have always loved playing in bands.. mainly because of the comradery between the group... the whole "one for all and all for one thing" is what a band should be about. That's not to say that's what a band is always like... it starts out that way, then turns to something totally different. So this time around, after many failed attemps to keep a band together, working and everyone happy... I have taken it upon myself to have 100% creative control over my music and the way that I chose to present it... this album " Push'n Up Roses" is a 100% solo effort on which, I wrote, recorded, peformed all instruments including vocals, engineered, and produced this album in it's entirety, out of my home studio: Long Distance Records.
I really hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!!! I am currently working on some new material and should have it here for your listening pleasure VERY soon!!! Cheers!!!
I have to appologize for the latency in the Video. It's not like that on the original version But it seems to have done that during upload. Hopefully I'll figure it out.
