PERFORMING - SAT 26
Bob Evans, the ARIA winning alter ego of Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has graced the Australian music scene for more than two decades and has written some of the country’s most beloved songs.
Under the alias of Bob Evans, Mitchell has released six albums, all of which showcase the versatility and skill of this talented songsmith. Gentle, acoustic melodies prevail, enveloping the classic folk storytelling and strong emotional pull that characterises Mitchells’ substantial body of work.
Bob Evans has achieved awards for Best Male Artist in Rolling Stone Australia’s annual reader poll, was a finalist for the Australian Music Prize, and a strong contender for the much lauded J Award in 2006. Bob Evans’ second studio release, ‘Suburban Songbook’, had Kev pick up a 2006 ARIA Award for Best Adult Contemporary Album, chalking up Gold accreditation in the process. ‘Goodnight, Bull Creek!’, his third studio album, earned Mitchell dual 2009 ARIA Award nominations for Best Male Artist and Best Adult Contemporary Album while ‘Familiar Stranger’ followed up with a 2013 ARIA Award nomination for Best Adult Contemporary Album.
