Cameron Mitchell review…May 7, 2015….

CAMERON MITCHELL

CHELSEA NO EVIL

SELF-RELEASED

GOOD MORNING HEARTBREAK–WOMAN IN LOVE–SOMETIMES THINGS JUST FADE–MAYBE I WAS LOOKING FOR YOU–JUST BEFORE–DARLIN LET ME WARN YOU

Cameron Mitchell is one of the rising young voices on the country scene today.  His latest EP is “Chelsea No Evil,” with his excellent songwriting skills leading the way.  He’s got plenty of guitar chops, too, and a vocal style that has just that right touch of “rough-around-the-edges” that fits this material well.

His songs deal primarily with the ups and downs of love and relationships.  Enjoy the percussive beats that permeate “Woman In Love,” and the tale of two lovers on the outs, where it’s not always who’s weak or who’s strong, but the fact that “Sometimes Things Just Fade.”  He plays a lover who gets out before it’s too late by “saying goodbye Just Before I say I do.”

The bookends were our favorites.  Leading off is “Good Morning Heartbreak,” which has a driving, rockabilly beat with a little Memphis grease for good measure.  And, the set closes with a story of life on the road, “Darlin Let Me Warn You.”   His  guitar is reminiscent of John Mayer as he tells a lover about his lifestyle—“you’ll love it as a girlfriend but you’ll hate it as a wife!”

Cameron Mitchell indeed has a bright future ahead of him.  We look forward to longer sets of originals from him, and, for now, “Chelsea No Evil” is an excellent introduction!  Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues Society.
