"....the portrait stowed in his attic grows more interesting with each album." Rolling Stone Magazine
“Bob Evans' latest album Car Boot Sale is one of the best realised adult contemporary albums we've heard all year.” Double J
Bob Evans is the charming alter ego and solo project of Australian recording artist Kevin Mitchell who also fronts alternative rock band Jebediah.
Borrowed from a t-shirt, the moniker allowed Mitchell to do something, in his words, “under the radar” and acoustic away from the revelry and packed pubs of his beloved Perth pop-punk foursome. “I never intended to play Jebs songs and knew that people would expect that from ‘Kevin Mitchell’.”
A talented singer/songwriter, Bob Evans has achieved awards for Best Male Artist in Rolling Stone Australia’s 2007 annual reader poll, was a finalist for 2007’s Australian Music Prize, and a strong contender for the lauded J Award in 2006. Bob Evans’ second studio release, ‘Suburban Songbook’, had Kev pick up a 2006 ARIA Award for Best Adult Contemporary Album, chalking up Gold accreditation in the process. More recently, “Goodnight, Bull Creek!”, his third studio album earned Mitchell dual 2009 ARIA Award nominations for Best Male Artist and Best Adult Contemporary Album while “Familiar Stranger” followed up with a 2013 ARIA Award nomination for Best Adult Contemporary Album.
Recorded at Sydney’s 301 Studios with multi-instrumentalist and ARIA nominated producer/mixer/writer Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Montaigne, Spookyland, Falls), the new album ‘Car Boot Sale’ is a surprisingly simple yet ornate album for the Australian troubadour. The title refers to the “travelling salesman style” of his old school solo tours.
In 2016, Bob took his music and humour into the world of podcasts launching a special series, ‘Good Evans, It’s a Bobcast!’ featuring special guests Tom Ballard, Lindsay McDougall, Josh Pyke, Clare Bowditch, Melody Pool and features stories that shaped Evans and his career.
