PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
Bob Evans is the name Mitchell uses to record and perform his critically acclaimed albums, Suburban Kid, Suburban Songbook and his upcoming album Goodnight, Bull Creek! This time, however, he is leaving the landscape of his suburban childhood behind.

"My last record was very much an open love letter to my partner," he says. "I knew I could only make that kind of record once in a lifetime and I'm so proud of it. But this time, I wanted to express my feelings about the outside world a little bit more. This record is a little bit deeper and richer."

Bull Creek is the name of the southern suburb of Perth where Mitchell grew up. It's a very ordinary little suburb filled with little brown brick houses. Mitchell says the suburb represents a lot of things he was using on the last album in terms of innocence and naivety and simplicity - all the things he associates with his childhood. The first song, 'Someone So Much', states Mitchell's intention to leave the suburbs behind even though he was expected to do one more suburban record. "It's my intention to venture out into the world and express something greater than my own little existence," he explains.
