Brent is a songwriter’s songwriter.—AlexWhitmore
The man can write songs like nobody’s business. Mitchell is any killer Americana superstar you can think of. Yeah, his songs are that good. He is Steve Earle, Joe Ely, Levon Helm, Hank Williams III, John Hiatt, Jay Farrar… Paddy Fineran

…should be on Triple A radio playlists all over the country… a searing rock guitar… I could go on and on..." Paddy Finneran KENOSHA NEWs, Paddy Finneran April 30, 2014
I finally got around to popping in Mitchell's self-titled Cd early this week. The first thing I thought was this cat is a troubadour in the old-fashioned way. ("Troubadour" comes from the French "Trobar" meaning to find, invent, compose in verse.)...The main thing that surprised me is that I found myself taking the long way home with extra turns and roundabouts just to hear it start to finish.
What happened twice is that the new collection of songs on the new Brent Mitchell Trio CD featuring Paul Emerson and Brian Ford was so damn good that rather than getting where I was going, I found myself driving around and around because I wanted--no, NEEDED--to hear the entire disc in one setting.
Brent Mitchell rocks—this cat is a troubadour!
