Gold Coast singer-songwriter Mitch King has recently become the second artist signed to Michael Gudinski’s newest label Reclusive Records, joining label mate Scott Darlow.
“To be selected by Michael Gudinski and have him believe in my music is a great honour,” says Mitch about the signing.
“I’m really looking forward to releasing lots of new music this year. Thank you to Michael, Andrew Mackie, and the whole Mushroom team – I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our new partnership.”
To accompany the signing, Mitch has dropped his latest single ‘Oil & Water’, co-written with Mark Lizotte – aka Diesel.
‘Oil & Water’ was born when Mitch and Mark Lizotte met for a writing session in Sydney. Mitch funnelled his personal experience into the track – “as much as you like to be with someone, sometimes the differences between two people are so vast, you realise you are like oil and water”.
Born and raised on the Gold Coast, Mitch King spends his days travelling around Australia in his campervan, playing his music at the shows and festivals across the country. He first started playing guitar at the age of 14, spending hours in his bedroom playing music. His single ‘Coming Back’ reached new heights when it was picked by the US NFL team Green Bay Packers to promote their season opener.
Mitch has graced festival stages at the likes of the Tamworth Country Music Festival and St Kilda Festival, and supported artists such as Tones And I, America The Band, and Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson.
Mitch will be touring Queensland and New South Wales through February and March, including an appearance at Miami Marketta on 13 February. He is also hoping to release an EP in 2021, so watch this space.
