Biography

There are at least four artists with the name Bob Evans:
1) the stage-name for the solo work of Kevin Mitchell, an Australian pop musician from Fremantle, Australia, most famous for his role as vocalist/guitarist for the band Jebediah
2) a self-taught British guitarist from Folkestone, Kent, who currently lives in Sussex
3) an American punk band from Maplewood, New Jersey, who were active in the 1990s

1) Bob Evans is the stage-name for the solo work of Kevin Mitchell (born 1 October 1976), an Australian pop musician from Fremantle, Australia, most famous for his role as vocalist/guitarist for the band Jebediah. Mitchell has released three albums under the name Bob Evans, the first being Suburban Kid, which was released in 2003 on Redline Records and was not widely available. Whilst all the tracks were written by Mitchell, one song, “The Hermit”, was co-written by Luke Steele from The Sleepy Jackson. Katy Steele, from Little Birdy also performed backup vocals on the album.
The follow up, Suburban Songbook, was released in 2006. It began as a collection of demos that Kevin Mitchell recorded with no intention of widely releasing them. However, Capitol Records discovered them and put into motion the idea of recording an album. Suburban Songbook won the “Best Adult Contemporary Album” and Kevin Mitchell (Bob Evans) was nominated for “Best Male Artist” in the 2006 ARIA Awards. The album was also nominated for the 2006 Australian Music Prize and the 2006 J Award.
