It is November 25th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
This week the incredible artist receiving the spot is one I recently met. And, his music is something amazing.
From Winnipeg, Manitoba, Andrew Mitchell Music is the one getting the featured spot this week. Although I literally just met him [for the first time] a few days ago, I am stoked to give his song The World Behind You the 'Song of the Week' spot.
If you have been following Basement Entertainment's monthly acoustic series, which was introduced in September of 2012, you know that each month we combine local talent for an incredible night. So, I was beyond excited when I was approached by Andrew's manager, a couple of months ago, saying he would be in my area this month.
This young man's EP is not only phenomenal recorded, however, his live performance is also something you need to listen to. And, to make things even more amazing, Andrew is an incredibly nice and humble fellow.
Andrew's second EP, titled Heart Armour, is complete with five amazing indie/pop/acoustic style songs. And, this week's 'Song of the Week', The World Behind You, is the third track off this release.
On the Andrew Mitchell Music Facebook page he states, "Referring to Andrew Mitchell Music solely as an acoustic artist is quite the understatement. Having spent years in the punk scene, his show is full of energy and comical banter you don't usually expect from a bearded guy with an acoustic guitar. Since his first EP, Let's Keep Going, in 2010, he has found the sound that is right for him. Now integrating well produced tracks, including synth, strings and piano, into his newest EP, Heart Armour, and live show, he is sure to catch everyone's attention on his first Canadian tour."
Andrew is currently on mini tour across parts of Ontario, hitting places like Toronto, St. Catharines and, of course, Kitchener. And, with the tour complete on November 29th 2012, all I can say is make sure you check him out live when he is near you.
Andrew is definitely an incredibly talented young man and I am so honoured to have met him. His music is captivating and continually proves he is definitely doing the right thing. Please make sure you check out Andrew Mitchell Music, his EP, Heart Armour, and, of course, the 'Song of the Week', The World Behind You.
If you cannot see Andrew live, the next best thing is to, of course, watch his videos on Youtube. So, check out the official music video for The World Behind You, this week's 'Song of the Week', on Youtube here:
See you next Sunday for the newest 'Song of the Week' to be announced. For the next few days definitely take the time to discover the [very] talented Andrew Mitchell Music.
