Ohio based singer songwriter Reed Mitchell has released his new single, “I´m On Fire” out now.
Mitchell is a rising star in the Pop-rock Americana arena, with catchy songs and lyrics that stick. His musical influences include Elliot Smith, The Lumineers, and Lou Reed. “I´m On Fire” is a vibrant folk-rock track with an alternative country style blend, a song about Mitchell pursuing his music career.
“This is the first song I ever wrote on the piano. It took me out of my comfort zone and it ended up sounding a lot different than some other songs on the album for that reason. Recording this was super fun, we brought in a true professional pianist (Danny Mitchell) who took my demo version and made it into what it is. I was so pumped to hear it come to life, to hear the cool attitude that he captured so well. The backing vocals were sung by Mia Rose who really made the chorus pop.”
Inspired by a woman in his life who encouraged him to kickstart a career path in music, “I´m on Fire” captures the momentum of creating a musical style and running with it.
A piano based song, with thumping chords that leads the melody throughout. Mitchell´s voice is raw and moving, as well as fresh.
During a period of solitude during the pandemic, Mitchell has emerged a new man who has discovered to take a calculated risk and finally push his music out into the world. His solo debut album, Hot & Cold, is out later this year.
