The story of Craig Mitchell & Motor City is one with many twists, turns, ins, outs and what-have-yous, but this will be the simplified version. One group of musicians found out that one extremely talented singer/dj had an even bigger obsession with Prince than they did. The two combined forces and put on not one but TWO sold out shows in Burlington, VT paying homage to the Purple One and his music. After those two shows and a few other collaborations between the prince-obsessed musicians involved, it was decided that some original music needed to be created. They knew it was going to be damn good so they were already talking about a record, touring, playing Madison Square Garden, meeting the president...and now its finally come to fruition. 

Over the past few months with some critically acclaimed shows in between, the boys in Motor City have been honing their sound and crafting some songs that at times sound like Prince, Talking Heads and Jamiroquai while also gaining influences from the sounds of the Motor City itself, whether that be Parliament Funkadelic, Detroit techno, the Stooges or the White Stripes. After melding all of these influences together while keeping their own sound intact, Craig Mitchell & Motor City have decided that it is time to record their album...that is where you come in!

As well all know, everything costs money in this world and in order to record an EP that you definitely will enjoy, CMMC needs some cash and is asking you to help out. The band will take donations of all sizes but the only kind they need as of now is cash (so no cans of soup, oragami or things of that nature...though much appreciated) so please donate to our cause. Motor City is here to provide you with some wonderful sounds and really think that this record we are recording will become a major part of your music collection. So, help the team out and donate a few (or more than a few) dollars their way. Thank you in advance.
