Slow Is The New Fast is Ben Mitchell’s latest album. Early reviews are describing it as his best.
“His fourth and finest album…the sound is intimate and warm. This is a gentle record but it leaves a lasting impression.” Jeff Jenkins, The Music
“A swampy shimmer underlies acoustic guitar and the wonderful voice of Ben Mitchell as he sings of ignoring the things you can’t control in life and giving into the flow and destiny of existence. It’s a simple song musically – and I mean that in the best possible way. The elements are all there, reduced to their essential components of rhythm, mood and tone. His voice is the real drawcard though. Warm and yearning, with just that right amount of ache and sweet serenade. Soulful country folk.” Post To Wire, Americana/Folk/Blues and Rock n’ Roll
Recorded and co-produced with multi-ARIA award winner, Matt Walker in his analogue studio in the hills on the outskirts of Melbourne, Slow Is The New Fast is acoustic based with minimal overdubs.
