22-year-old Glaswegian singer-songwriter Murdo Mitchell today shares his debut single ‘Hollow’. Released on COMPRO RECORDS via The Orchard, ‘Hollow’ is the first cut from his upcoming EP set for release in Autumn 2021.
‘Hollow’ is a lyrically charged song, detailing the vulnerable feelings someone goes through after they have cheated. Mitchell’s vocal is raw, emotional, and honest, displaying a bright and mature edge for such a young artist. With yearning melodies and guitar riffs to match, ‘Hollow’ is a track for all guitar-led music lovers. Its intelligent songwriting and performance from Mitchell is mesmerising, taking you on a journey through his mind.
“Hollow is my favourite track [from] the E.P. Probably because it’s the most honest, I got to a place when writing this track - it just came together incredibly fast. Sometimes you battle with a song to get it finished you revisit & change & revisit & change, however, some songs just happen, this one just happened. I also unlock the place where I was when I wrote this song when I perform it live and for a song to keep its meaning is special. I hope that when people listen to it they can unlock something special.”

Having started busking at a young age, Mitchell has had a passion for performing since a child. From the very beginning Mitchell had the continued support from his parents to fulfil his dream, and after going headfirst into the centre of Glasgow with his guitar it was there that he set his passion alight and ventured on his musical journey.
Murdo Mitchell has been on an exponential rise to where he is now. Leaving school as soon as he could and working his way through the music scene to perform at festivals like T-In-The Park, Belladrum, Linlithgow Folk Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe, he is on track for an incredible 2021.
When putting together his debut EP, Mitchell decided against the standard path to get his music heard; instead, he opted for labels outside of the UK. Since November 2020, he has secured Norwegian record label Compro Records as the label and management with Oslo-based Pick & Mix MGMT; all set to release his full EP in Autumn 2021.
