CD REVIEW: Elise by Damon Mitchell

We absolutely love hearing a song utilizing the harmonica. Let’s face it – the harmonica seems like an easy instrument to learn but it’s quite complex once you try it out. Now, it’s even more difficult when it’s not the only instrument you’re holding, let alone playing.

Damon Mitchell just released a new EP titled ,”Elise” and and he’s using quite a few instruments in his tracks. Listen to “License Plate”, he utilizes the harmonica to its potential and we love it!

Damon Mitchell  recently appeared on stage as a guest with America on their timeless hit, “A Horse With No Name” and he killed it! We love this collaboration and we can’t wait to see more of it.

Now, when it comes to “License Plate”, it’s such a revelation to listen to a great story behind the lyrics. As Damon Mitchell says it himself:

“Music has power. It is an act of creation. It is a language. Music is a conduit to something bigger than ourselves; something far beyond us. It is a conduit, and yet is simply how we tell our stories.”

The way we tell our stories can shape the minds of those listening to it. We must be conscious of the power we carry to those who are willing to listen to us. We love Damon Mitchell’s new EP because it’s helping guide us through our own personal journeys.

Listen to “License Plate” below and tell us what you think before listening to his EP.
