Mitchell Lawler Debuts New Single

Bouncy new single relflects maximizing potential By: Courtney McNeil

EDMONTON – Local 22 year old rapper Mitchell Lawler has been rapidly gaining attention since 2012, when he first became known in the Edmonton hip hop scene. He’s received numerous grants, shared the stage with the likes of Big Sean, T.I., Waka Flocka Flame among several others and now he’s releasing his much anticipated debut EP Day One.

“My debut EP Day One is where it all starts for me,” explains Lawler. “It’s a vulnerable project that dives into everything that led up to this foundation being put together in the first place; self-love, anxiety and everything that surrounds it, loves stories and all the bumps in between.”

The first single “Ease Up” is a bouncy, laid back track that sadly clocks in at 2 minutes and 27 seconds; saying a hip hop track should be longer doesn’t happen all that often these days. With crisp production and lyrics that drag, sway and pop, this track is an excellent indicator of the type of hip hop coming out of Edmonton. As Lawler references “his Jordan year” on the way to turning 23, the same number NBA superstar Michael Jordan wore during his run with the Chicago Bulls, he symbolizes growing up and striving to be his best man.

“I put a lot of pressure on myself to maximize my personal potential. I suppose this track is me realizing how high I’ve set the bar set for myself and how to identify and deal with those obstacles along the way.”

Lean back and enjoy the new single “Ease Up” by hitting play.



Lawler unveils the new single Sunday, October 29th at the Forge in Edmonton with the Palmer Squares and several supporting acts. Tickets are available at Foosh on Whyte Ave or online here:
