Join us as we say goodbye to The World Reimagined at a special closing party celebration. Bob Evans, the charming alter-ego and solo project of Australian recording artist Kevin Mitchell, will provide the closing night tunes alongside the WAM 2013 Song of the Year Winner, Mathas.
Bob Evans is the charming alter-ego and solo project of Australian recording artist Kevin Mitchell, who also fronts alternative rock band Jebediah. His full-length ‘Familiar Stranger’ album, released earlier this year, marks his fourth studio release and a new chapter in the Bob Evans story. It follows on from the beloved ‘suburban’ trilogy; ‘Suburban Kid’, ‘Suburban Songbook’ and most recently, ‘Goodnight, Bull Creek!’ With a sound that breaks away from the overarching acoustic and somewhat alt-country style of previous records, the new music showcases a progressive pop sound and an artist brimming with newfound inspiration.
Bob Evans is joined by Mathas, a founding member of Perth music and arts collective “The Community”. Mathas recently released, Nourishment featuring Abbe May. An emotionally stirring and socially conscious song investigating the link between our lack of a national food identity and treatment of the indigenous owners of Australia, it was mastered by 2013 Grammy Award-winning William Bowden (Gotye, Hermitude, Tim Finn, Jimmy Little).
The track won the Hip Hop and Electronic categories in the 2013 WAM Song Of The Year competition, as well as taking out the coveted Grand Prize. This followed up numerous 2013 WAM Award nominations, including Best Solo Act, announced a few weeks before taking out WA’s premier prize for songwriting.
