This Friday Canadian songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist Mitch Davis will release his debut album The Haunt, on Arbutus Records. Before then he is dropping a final single from the album titled “Left Inside”.
Davis is a mainstay of the vibrant Montréal music scene, with a musical background encompassing everything from rock bands (Faith Healer) to avant-garde (Elle Barbara’s Black Space) to jazz and hip-hop (Cadence Weapon). The Haunt is a synthesis of his many musical interests, stretching back to his childhood when he played drums in the church band and saxophone in his school band (he plays both on The Haunt).
Many of the songs were inspired by Davis’s experiences trying to online date in the midst of the pandemic, with curfews and lockdowns adding even more complications to an already lonely endeavor.
