Biography

aka Phillip Mitchell.

Self-taught singer-songwriter and pianist Phillip E. Mitchell’s LP, Therapy, should keep you on the couch for the duration of its forty-five minute running time—about the time of a typical session of therapy, but for a reduced fee. Athens music magazine, The Flagpole, called Mitchell’s music “soulful” and “mellow” with a “theatrical edge” while on tour with the Colorful Quiet in 2009. Therapy continues this tradition with personal, semi-autobiographical songs that chronicle the last two years of his life.

After raising money on Kickstarter.com, Mitchell recruited a stellar line-up of musicians to help him realize his vision. Gerry Hansen, drummer and producer of Shawn Mullins’ newest album Light You Up, came aboard to play drums. Famed Nashville producer and former member of Fleming and John, John Mark Painter (Ben Folds & Gabe Dixon Band), contributed horn tracks, Grammy nominated John Keane (Widespread Panic & R.E.M.) played bass, and Andy Carlson (R.E.M & the Cowboy Junkies), whom the New York Times called “demon fiddler,” arranged and played strings.

Mitchell’s music avoids easy point-by-point comparisons to other artists in the piano pop pantheon. While he cites Folds, Elton John, Billy Joel, Randy Newman, and Leon Russell as influences, his songs, both in melodic sensibility and style, are all his own.

Mitchell’s past releases are SOUL, SOUL II, and The Second Act. You can check these out on itunes or CDBABY.
