"Mitchell Shadlow Album Review"

MITCHELL SHADLOW had a big hit in the late 90s with his debut CD One Of These Days… then all went quiet. Like every other fan, I was bemused at the silence. What happened to Mitchell Shadlow? Answer: He went to Ireland! His brand new CD The Last Eleven Years has just arrived and the tinge of green from the Emerald Isle is apparent. Beautiful mandolin, fiddle and accordion counterpoint Mitchell’s gritty vocals. Comparisons abound; BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN (his recent works), LEONARD COHAN, even NICK CAVE. Mitchell drives the passion through pain. Opening track Better Life speaks of the search for greener pastures. Perfect Day continues the theme. STEVE EARLE’s Galway Girl adds a little foot-tapping fun. Falling Buildings is a devastating cry of helplessness in the face of tragedy and terror. Give You Everything abandons restraint and commits all for love. A compelling return to the country music fold, welcome back Mitchell Shadlow.

"Mitchell Shadlow "One of These Day's""

"One Of These Days" is everything a debut album should be, it's obvious that quite a deal of time
has been spent in preparation. The selection of songs, the vocals, and the musical arrangements are all spot on. Nine of the 14 songs on the album were penned by Mitchell, three of those are co-writes with other Australian songwriters. Kevin Bennett shares credits on the emotional ballad "Can I See You Again", & Fiona Kernaghan's influence can be heard on "Love Lies Bleeding". Fiona & Mitchell also got together and wrote song inspired by Slim Dusty and Stan Coster titled "Stockman". Mitchell says the first track "Framed" takes him back to his childhood and listening to the music of Steve Earl, who's own composition "Rains Came Down", is featured later on the album. A re-make of the Little Heroes hit "One Perfect Day", and the song that won a final nomination in the Male Vocal category of the 1996 CMAA Country Music Awards, "Big Decision", are both pleasing inclusions. There are a variety of styles to showcase Mitchell's talent, from the intensely personal "Marnies Ballad", to the blues/rock feel of "Cool Cow Cafe". "Mother Trucker" is a fun rocker, although it is rather derivative of the Garth Brooks hit "Ain't Goin' Down Till The Sun Comes Up". Some of the songs have an Australian flavour while others like "Now That's She's Gone" and the title track "One Of These Day's", could be straight out of Nashville. There is no doubt that producer Colin Watson ( who is one of the best in his field) has played a major part in the final result of this fine album. - Rosie Adsett for Country Update

“I was quite moved when I first heard
Mitchells voice,” says Head of ABC
Music Meryl Gross. “His voice is
exceptional – his elegant, masculine
style had me immediately charmed
and I knew in my heart that this was
a man with a rare talent and a big future.”

In the late 90's Mitchell recorded his Debut Album "One Of These Days" and was signed to ABC/EMI. With this album Mitchell won numerous music awards throughout Australia including Male Vocal at the Kyneton Country Music Awards two years running and had three consecutive years of Australian Country Music Award nominations for Best Male Vocal. During this time Mitchell toured with his band and played nationally with entertainers such as Slim Dusty, Charlie Daniel's Band, James Blundell, Marcia Hine's and Willie Nelson

From 2001 Mitchell moved to Dublin where he lived for seven years immersing himself in the culture and heritage of the irish music scene. In this time he recorded and produced "The Last Eleven Years" an album he returned to Australia with in 2009 to promote and tour. Over the last few years he has been playing festivals around the country along with small runs in the New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia regions. “Music is my love and to play is my dream”, Says Mitchell who now splits his time between his two homes Australia and Ireland concentrating tirelessly on building and marketing his career to as many people across the world as possible

After so many years in the music industry and playing all over the world, there is no challenge too great for this very experienced and exceptionally talented artist. Mitchell possesses all the attributes needed to succeed in the demanding entertainment world. Looking upon all this man has achieved to date there is no doubting his talents and determination and his will to prosper in the music business. “The rewards of performing far out weigh the potential earnings of my career and I could never tire of this job.”
