“In beat up jeans and a VCU tee, Patrick sits across from me on his beloved tempurpedic bed. He refers to it as the cloud and he’s not lying. That thing is the bomb. “I don’t normally talk to people about this stuff,” he says stiffly. Cracking a smile, he adds, “that would be like actually explaining what my songs mean…that’s for the listener to figure out”. Patrick is a 24-year-old singer/songwriter with music in his brain the way that air fills the rest of the world’s lungs. He picked up a guitar in 2005, and it wasn’t long before he was crooning his self-written tunes, peppered with a few covers, at local Richmond events. He’s played at over 25 regional venues and festivals and doesn’t plan on stopping.” - Sydney Hubbard
“Picked up my first guitar in 2005. Been playing every day since then. Music moves me because when it comes down to it you're not trying to sell anything to anybody. You're not trying to manipulate them. You're trying to appeal to their senses and give them something meaningful they will remember and might potentially move them.”
Mitchel Evan is a 23 year old songwriter from Richmond, Virginia, now living in the outskirts of Denver, Colorado. He first started playing piano at the age of 9, but it wasn’t until he picked up the guitar at 13 that he discovered his passion and knack for songwriting. Mitchel writes songs with an emphasis on lyrical content and emotional delivery in an effort to map the shortest distance from his heart to the listeners’. In addition to his 4 piece rock band, Mitchel Evan and The Mangrove, the artist is working on a full length solo album and continues to write, record and tour at a prolific rate.
