My first introduction to Kevin Mitchell was as the larrikin frontman of ‘90s punk act Jebediah. At that time I could never have imagined he’d be making the kind of folky acoustic music I really dig under the alias Bob Evans. Or the way that fans would take to his softer alter ego. Yet roughly 15 years after unveiling Bob Evans, Kevin Mitchell’s laidback music is still going strong. This video of “My Matilda” should give you some indication as to why.

For more music like that, make sure you check out Bob Evans on his very extensive Aussie tour over the next few months. He’ll visit capital cities and regional centres, and as an added bonus offer a few six-track EP Zeroes to Heroes to anyone that purchases a ticket from his website or online outlets.
