Interview with with Mitchel Evan

Sofa King Cool caught up with Mitchel Evan and we discussed his new single Cancel The Noise off of his upcoming self titled album, what is like playing shows during the pandemic, holding off almost a year to release this album and what is next for him


MITCHEL EVAN “Cancel Out The Noise” is his third single being released off his self-titled album (due out 3/19 with The Label Group/INgrooves). Mitchel Evan brings his well-seasoned songwriting experiences together and links his life observances in a vibrant way that takes the listeners on a journey. “Cancel Out The Noise” is yet another measure Mitchel has built upon. A blend of alternative sounds with indie and rock is backed by Mitchel Evan’s band, The Saboteurs. Together Mitchel Evan with his band is creating true music sounds that tell a story along the way.

‘”Cancel Out The Noise” is the 3rd single from my self-titled record, “Mitchel Evan”. It came to me when I was falling for someone new. I was living in Colorado at the time, but I actually started writing the song in Richmond while I was home for a week visiting my family. This song actually first appeared on my 2018 EP, The Little Horse Tapes. I had only been single for a short while after coming out of a long-term relationship and I was hesitant to enter another. The song is about being pulled into love with your heels dug into the dirt. This studio version of “Cancel Out The Noise” was recorded mostly live with minimal overdubs at Go West Studio in Richmond, Virginia. It features Tyler Meacham on backing vocals, who is a friend and fellow RVA based artist as well.”‘

Mitchel Evan is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Richmond, Virginia that has traveled the country exploring new landscapes and soundscapes. A young, yet an experienced writer, Evan has found his voice after a decade of developing his craft. Nearly half of that time was spent living in Colorado and touring the western United States, but his rambling has since brought him back east to his home state of Virginia. With an already extensive catalog of releases behind him, between the now-defunct Colorado-based Mitchel Evan & The Mangrove, and now releasing music simply under the name “Mitchel Evan” – he is shaping up to be a prolific writer with a seemingly boundless range of sounds. The songs are honest and confessional while maintaining a sense of hopeful humor and wit and profound insight. Evan’s performances radiate charisma, conviction, and confidence that comes only from writing scores of songs and playing hundreds of shows. Backed by his new 4-piece Americana band, Mitchel Evan & The Saboteurs are quickly making a name for themselves in the American Southeast and across the country.
