Hi, 

I’m Damon Mitchell. On May 22nd, I’m releasing a new single, “Ready For Change,” that I think you would like and that has a timely message that BBS fans would relate to. 

Here is a private SoundCloud link where you can listen to “Ready For Change” as well as a Google Drive link to the behind-the-scenes video that will be released via Vevo.

“Ready For Change” is a vulnerable insight to the constant struggle against the feeling of inadequacy, loneliness, and not being enough. Punctuated by a plea - or moreover a call-to-action - of change, the song seems more timely now than ever. 

The song was written by Damon Mitchell and the recording features Walfredo Reyes Jr. (Chicago, Santana, etc.) on percussion, Ryland Steen (America, Reel Big Fish) on drums, Dave Martin on bass, Audie Blaylock (Audie Blaylock and Redline, Rhonda Vincent) on 12-string acoustic, Carolyn Martin (The Time Jumpers) on backing vocals, Max Mitchell on backing vocals and keyboards, and Damon Mitchell on electric guitar and lead vocals. 

Bio:

"A well-crafted cross between The Beatles and Death Cab for Cutie." That's the intriguing description of Damon Mitchell's music recently given by a well-respected music industry photojournalist. Damon's hook- laden, musical-wares cleverly combines influences from the past and present in a unique concoction that will undoubtedly become his signature.

“The music climate as we know it today is sorely, sorely lacking in the straight up melodic bliss department. With too much emphasis on soundscape and not enough on melody, an entire generation of songwriters look like they’re forgetting about the one fundamental necessity in which every great song is based’ melody. If you’re on board so far- and I’m sure you are- then I’m sure you’ll be up for what I’m about to tell you next. Elise is the new six-song EP from singer-songwriter extraordinaire Damon Mitchell. No fluff. No nonsense. No bullshit.” - Alternative Nation

It would truly be an honor for “Ready For Change” to be featured in on BBS. If you have any questions/comments or would like to set up an interview, please feel free to reach me at this email. 

Peace and Health,
Damon Mitchell
