Ohio native, singer songwriter Adam Calvert is quickly making a
name for himself in the country music scene as an up and coming
independent artist on the rise. Adam is known for his role on MTV’s
hit musical reality show, “Taking The Stage” which was nominated for
a Teen Choice Award.
With winning Rising Star of the Year at the Josie Music Awards,
sharing the stage with “Big Loud Records” HARDY at the Delaware
State Fair, and headlining dozens of fairs and festivals across the
country, Adam has had a landmark year. He continues to perform over
200 concerts a year across 20 different states while regularly
releasing new music.
The singer/songwriter has accumulated over 800,000 streams across
all platforms. You don’t want to miss his high energy country show that
appeals to a wide range of audiences.
Damon enjoyed numerous praises from notable press outlets with his most recent release, "Like You're In A Dream." Since his debut release, "Elise," in 2019, he has shared the stage with artists such as Foreigner, Blue Oyster Cult, Matthew Perryman Jones, and has joined legendary band “America” as a guest artist for live performances of their timeless hit “Horse With No Name.” Mitchell has additionally worked in renowned studios across the U.S. and into Europe, including London’s extraordinary Abbey Road Studios. Many notable guest artists appear on Damon's rapidly growing discography - proving that this young artist's respect for his influencers is clearly reciprocated.
Produced by legendary guitarist Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles, CSN, etc.), we'll let Pevar have the last word on this charming fast-emerging entertainer. "Damon has it all. Not only does he have a wonderful voice, compose unique, catchy songs, play guitar with a grace beyond his years, he’s also a dashing, debonair dude who is bound for the big stage. I am thrilled and honored to be working with him in the studio and very happy with the chemistry of our collaborations."
“Cosmic cowboy meets hippie psychedelia.” That is the recent synopsis of Damon Mitchell’s signature “Beatles meets Death Cab For Cutie” sound given by a well-respected music news outlet. This artist's hook- laden, musical-wares cleverly combines influences from the past and present in a unique concoction that will undoubtedly become his signature.
