Gold Coast singer-songwriter Mitch King
becomes the second act signed to Michael Gudinski’s newest label, Reclusive Records
. Today, Mitch releases his new single, ‘Oil & Water’
, which was co-written with Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel).
Mitch King is ecstatic to sign to Reclusive. “To be selected by Michael Gudinski and have him believe in my music is a great honor. 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.”
Michael Gudinski is thrilled to have Mitch join the Reclusive family. “I have always been fascinated with the one-man band concept. After seeing Mitch perform live, I knew there was something unique and special about him. The fact that Mitch’s song ‘Coming Back’ was used and embraced by the NFL team The Green Bay Packers was a true testament to his songwriting and I was surprised that he wasn’t already signed after that! The reaction we had after Mitch performed 5 Seconds Of Summer’s track ‘Youngblood’ on The State Of Music was incredible and it made it clear that we had to have him on Reclusive.”
A&R Manager Andrew Mackie says, “due to the honesty in his songwriting and openness in his live performances, Mitch has built an incredibly loyal fanbase. I can’t wait for more people to discover Mitch’s talents and integrity.”
‘Oil & Water’ was born when Mitch and Mark Lizotte met for a writing session in Sydney. Mitch funneled 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 traveling 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 has spent 2020 focused on writing new music and is looking forward to releasing an EP this year.
