Richmond, VA Americana Singer / Songwriter MITCHEL EVAN has released his new single, “Las Cruces,” via The Label Group / INgrooves.
“Las Cruces was written as a response to a not-so-civil band break up. I fronted this band for a couple years called Mitchel Evan & The Mangrove based out of Colorado. Towards the end we had some pretty major creative and personal differences and there was a lot of resentment on both sides. I had just got out of a long term romantic relationship as well, so when the band broke up I started performing and touring solo for the first time. So the premise of Las Cruces is more or less a “F*ck you, I’m going on the road” sort of thing. It’s mostly angry but also confident, empowering and has a sense of freedom as well.” – Mitchel Evam
