Billy Mitchell's music is Inspired by the wit of Shel Silverstein, the eccentricity of John Prine, with a dash of Spike Jones thrown in for good measure, Billy Mitchell’s songs resonate, involve and entertain, spanning emotionally from heartfelt to hilarious.
But Here's what other folks say:
"He has a down to earth attitude and acceptance of all the strange things that come our way in life and renders them with fine detail, great warmth and plenty of talent."
Bill Copeland - Bill Copeland Music News
"Billy Mitchell’s strength is his folksy everyman delivery, with a lean toward the sort of irreverence found in writers like Ray Stevens. Whether lampooning pop culture or lamenting the conditions of healthcare, Billy Mitchell leaves the listener with something to think about." Don DiMuccio - Motif Magazine
"His trademark wit and knack for a memorable melody turn up on an eclectic mix showcasing the heart and humor that are staples of Mitchell's songwriting." Doug Norris - South County Independent
"Witty, funny, serious, ...are only some words to describe the delightful music of Billy Mitchell!"
J.W. Stein - Hootenanny Café -WTBQ AM1110, 93.5FM
