LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Charlie Mitchell, the 16-year old singer from the Gold Coast, has seen his 
debut single skyrocket to #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts. ESW Management 
can officially confirm that Narada Michael Walden's production of the original 
Brian Evans song "Even After," a song Evans wrote about his mother has topped 
the Adult Contemporary charts. Jesse Stenger and Evans, who executive produced 
the song with Charlie Mitchell creating the melody, were stunned at the news.

Surpassing Mick Jagger and Billy Joel on the PlayMPE charts, the leader in 
music distribution directly to radio programmers, Charlie Mitchell will appear 
for the first time nationally in Australia on the morning show Studio 10 on 
Wednesday, May 11th, 2022.

"We are being swarmed with requests at this point. This morning we awoke to an 
email inbox that was so full that people were calling us to tell us their 
emails were bouncing back," said Stenger.

"This is no surprise to me," said Evans. "I knew the moment I saw him."

The song, "Even After," was written by Evans in a unique way. The first verse 
conveys the words of a loved one who may have lost someone in some way, while 
the second verse and bridge is the one you lost speaking to you.

"When I was writing it, and it took me years to be able to after my mothers 
tragic and untimely passing, I knew that even as a singer myself, I couldn't 
bring myself to sing it. I was just too attached to it. When I discovered 
Charlie on social media, I knew he had the vulnerability that would give the 
kid a shot. People will interpret it in their own way. Some think it's about a 
break-up, some think it's about when someone passes," says Evans. "What I 
didn't expect was how talented Charlie was, and his unique "old soul" ability 
to interpret a song so young. It's really extraordinary."

Narada Michael Walden's words were a lot simpler: "Charlie Mitchell is a 
superstar in the making. I'm glad Brian brought him to me and we have a lot 
more work to do together."

The song, "Even After," can be downloaded on Apple iTunes, Spotify, and 
anywhere else music can be downloaded. His official website is, and his Facebook is 
where he had over 35,000 followers prior to Walden even producing him.
