ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Boomer Power is a collection of original songs about the Baby Boomer experience. As if being a child of the sixties isn't enough, navigating these digitally driven, smart phone fueled, social media mania times provided more than enough inspiration for Boomer Power.

If you've had flashbacks, short term memory loss, joint pain, mid-life crisis, over-medication, cultural deprivation, age avoidance or refuse-to-get-old-itis, Boomer Power is the CD for you. These songs revel in Boomer experiences and values with songs like; Gettin' Old Ain't for Sissies, Prescription Drugs, Says Who, Honey Do List, Assisted living, Re-Tired and many more.

Feel good about your vintage. Boomer Power will give you a better lift than any 5 hour energy drink.

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

Boomer Power is also the centerpiece for a series of live shows entitled Boomer Tunes Concerts that are available to Boomer minded organizations, communities and individuals as a fund raising vehicle or just pure entertainment. More information can be found at www.BoomerTunesConcerts.com

Billy Mitchell has been performing for over 30 years on Rhode Island waterfronts and regionally in venues like Dick’s Last Resort in Boston and The House of Blues on Sunset Strip in L.A. and numerous Songwriting Showcases in the Northeast. His most recent CD, DETOUR was nominated Best Americana Album of 2012 by Motif Magazine.

Billy Copeland - Bill Copeland Music Notes

Boomer Power stands up for a generation
According to "Bill Copeland Music Notes", Boomer Power is: ".A treat to anybody from Mitchell's' generation. This CD could be a double record set with large pictures on the front and back covers as well as the center fold. Yet, Mitchell has found a way to paint his own pictures, because he describes them so vividly. It's also easy to feel the frustrations, losses, victories, and joys he sings of because he relates them with a keen narrator's eye..."

Boomer Power: Original Songs about Boomer Experiences
Mark S. Tucker of AcousticMusic.com says: "Boomer Power's one of those discs residing halfway between 'incorrect music' and Doctor Demento, and this CD's gonna appeal to rednecks, aging hippies, people collecting DIY populist art, and anyone who can't locate enough comedy music, myself among 'em."
