Biography

A veteran composer, vocalist, guitarist, and pianist, Prince Phillip Mitchell’s roots are in vintage R & B, although he’s better known for soul tunes.

Mitchell sang with both The Premiers and The Checkmates in the late ‘50’s and early ‘60’s including ‘Shout, Smash (Keep On Talking)’ in 1960 and ‘Lollipop’ in 1961.

He also recorded for Hi Records and Event (‘There’s Another In My Life’, ‘We Get Caught’ and ‘I’ll See You In Hell First’).

He was also a dancer with The Bean Brothers in Los Angeles.

Mitchell had hits recorded by Mel & Tim, Millie Jackson, Norman Connors, Joe Simon, and Candi Staton, but hasn’t had as much luck on his own as a vocalist.

He featured on the Norman Connors set ‘Romantic Journey’ on ‘Once I’ve Been There’ and ‘Destination Moon’.

His only moderate hit was ‘One On One’ for Atlantic in 1978, and it only cracked the R & B Top 40.

He retired from recording after 1979 being disillusioned with the disco market but returned on Ichiban in 1986 for ‘Devastation’ including ‘In Her Own Way’.
