Minden man is ‘stuck’ in a dream

By Theresa Gardner

The musical dreams of one Webster Parish man may soon become a reality.

Minden native David Mitchell, says his first single “Stuck in This Place,” will drop later this month on the 21st.

“I have been playing and singing since I was 14,” the now 31-year-old said. “I’ve been playing guitar and writing music for a long-time now. It has always been my passion.”

Mitchell said his guitar and notepaper have always been close by, which helped him to cope with any situation that might arise.

“It didn’t take me long to understand that music was therapy for me,” he explained. “Writing out my worries, my frustrations and even my excitement has always made more sense when I put chords to them.”

Mitchell said he didn’t really start pursuing his music until a couple of years ago after posting a small clip on Facebook.

“I was really surprised,” he said. “I got great feedback from the post, and that’s when I got serious about my writing and haven’t looked back since.” 

Mitchell said without the support of his wife Katie, four sons and another one on the way, his dreams would be just that … dreams.

 “This is all still a surprise to me,” he said. “Without the love and support of Katie, our boys and the fans this would all be nothing more than just dreaming.”

“I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to chase this opportunity and humbled by all of the fans that support my music,” he said. “The sky is the limit, and we are just getting started!”

“Stuck in This Place” drops on the January 21. It will be available on all streaming platforms.
