Gold Coast singer-songwriter Mitch King becomes the second act signed to Michael Gudinski’s newest label, Reclusive Records. Mitch releases his new single, Oil & Water, which was co-written with Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel).
Mitch King is ecstatic to sign to Reclusive. “To be selected by Michael Gudinski and have him believe in my music is a great honour. I’m really looking forward to releasing lots of new music this year. Thank you to Michael, Andrew Mackie, and the whole Mushroom team – I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our new partnership.”
Michael Gudinski is thrilled to have Mitch join the Reclusive family. “I have always been fascinated with the one-man band concept. After seeing Mitch perform live, I knew there was something unique and special about him. The fact that Mitch’s song ‘Coming Back’ was used and embraced by the NFL team The Green Bay Packers was a true testament to his song writing and I was surprised that he wasn’t already signed after that! The reaction we had after Mitch performed 5 Seconds Of Summer’s track ‘Youngblood’ on The State Of Music was incredible and it made it clear that we had to have him on Reclusive.”
Oil & Water was born when Mitch and Mark Lizotte met for a writing session in Sydney. Mitch funnelled his personal experience into the track – “as much as you like to be with someone, sometimes the differences between two people are so vast, you realise you are like oil and water”.
