SOUNDBYTES ALL TRACKS-------->
 
MelodicRock Records is very excited to announce the signing of TONY MITCHELL – the voice of British hard rock band Kiss Of The Gypsy.
 
September 14 will see the release of Tony’s high-energy melodic rock masterpiece, TONY MITCHELL ‘Beggars Gold’, his first solo album since 2011.
 
‘Beggars Gold’ started off as 22 songs, later trimmed to 13, only the best of the best included on the final cut.
 
Tackling issues like self-confidence, bullying, drug/alcohol abuse & homelessness in songs like ‘Stone by Stone’, ‘Beggars Gold’ & ‘In Everyone of Us’, only adds more dynamics to the album.
‘Take a Look at Me Now’, highlights Mitchell’s songwriting craft, written about the disillusioned, talent show generation, with a tongue in cheek, sinister twist.
 
The ‘Beggars Gold’ album tries to give everything that any true melodic/AOR rock fan would want to hear from an album. Mitchell has thrown everything at this one, huge guitar riffs, anthemic choruses, gospel choirs, epic harmonies & raw, honest powerful rock vocals.
 
 
‘Beggars Gold’ will be released via MRR September 14 in two formats - regular jewel case CD and a limited Special Edition.

Tony Mitchell comments: “Beggar’s Gold is an album that has taken many twists & turns as I was writing & recording it. I wanted to write an album that had everything I would want from a melodic/AOR album & more, as a songwriter, I wanted to craft songs that had depth, dynamics, power & anthemic qualities.
I wanted to capture energy & attitude along with meaningful, emotional moments & I think that I have managed achieve that with this album. From the start, I wanted a barrage of songs that would get into the ears of those who like melodic rock with powerful guitars, huge harmonies & memorable hooks.
After pouring my heart & soul into the making of this album, I am very proud of it & in this age of writers/musicians not making any money from releasing their work due to free streaming/downloading etc., it’s my way of saying thanks to all the fans that have kept their faith in me & my music & to all the new fans who want to join me on this journey.
Climb aboard this rock n roll train, put the needle on the record & let’s dance!”

‘Beggars Gold’ started off as 22 songs, later trimmed to 13, only the best of the best included on the final cut. The album hits hard and is a relentless rollercoaster ride combining strong hooks & riffs as in ‘Playing with Fire’, ‘Never Say Die’, ‘Blind’, ‘Our Song’ & ‘In Everyone of Us’.
 
Just when you think you can catch your breath, in fires the ultra-catchy duet, ‘What you Make it’ with Sue Willetts (Dante Fox) which would grace any radio station.
The album also has monster rockers like ‘Wild Side’, ‘Welcome to the Revolution’ & ‘Fire Me Up’, where Mitchell’s voice comes to the fore.
 
Tackling issues like self-confidence, bullying, drug/alcohol abuse & homelessness in songs like ‘Stone by Stone’, ‘Beggars Gold’ & ‘In Everyone of Us’, only adds more dynamics to the album.
‘Take a Look at Me Now’, highlights Mitchell’s songwriting craft, written about the disillusioned, talent show generation, with a tongue in cheek, sinister twist.

In early 2016, Ex Kiss of the Gypsy & Kingdom of Deadmen frontman/guitarist, Tony Mitchell started writing & recording what was to be his 5th solo studio album.
 
He set out to return to his melodic/AOR rock style that was associated with him in his previous bands leading up to the raw classic rock style of Kiss of the Gypsy & the heavy rocking Kingdom of Deadmen.
 
It became evident to Mitchell that the songs had a real magic about them & rather than finish the album & release it on his own XGypsy music label which he had done with previous albums, he thought he would test the water by sending a handful of tracks out to a few melodic rock record companies.
 
All were blown away & wanted to release it there & then but what swayed Mitchell's decision was when he received a call from Khalil Turk from Escape Music.
 
After a conversation about the recording of the songs, Khalil suggested that he introduced Mitchell to a few musicians that he has worked with, to make the songs sound even better as Mitchell played all instruments & vocals on the demos.
 
The musicians included Paul Hume (lead guitar) & Neil Ogden (drums) from classic rock bands,Demon & Lawless,
Nigel Bailey (bass) from melodic rock bands, Bailey, Lifeline & 3 Lions also, Jamie Crees (guitar) from Lawless.
 
All brought their individual style to the table & was evident that something very special was happening ... Dirty White Boyz was born.
They have all come together to form an allegiance of AOR/Classic/Melodic Rock & each lending their style & craft to the dynamic songs for this debut album.
 
DWB have tried to use all the ingredients from their rich history, Mitchell's raw, rock vocals & punchy thick riff guitars, Ogden's thunderous, rock solid drumming, Hume's flawless, majestic lead guitar licks & solos, Crees's power riffs & twin lead & Bailey's thumping, ground shaking bass lines, all of which are singers that can harmonise effortlessly.
 
Now with the debut album, Down & Dirty finished, it's all systems go. The album not only hits you like a freight train, it also leaves you breathless in it's a combination of melodic gems, Anthemic rockers & a few heart wrenching power ballads for good measure.
Songs that will shake the very roof off any venue, songs that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride & songs that will stand the test of time
 
Dirty White Boyz are here !!! Jump aboard this Rock train, get down & dirty & let's enjoy the ride !!!
