Back on March 12, 2005, A Touch of Home was blessed by a concert performed by Mitch McVicker at Crossroads Church in Cottage Grove. He will be performing again on Tuesday, March 29th at the Opinion Brewery in Newport - honoring our military. More details coming. Mitch McVicker is at it again. With his latest recording, The Grey (When Black & White Fade), he points beyond our desire to make sense of everything. “The Love of God is beyond calculation,” he says. “Yet, we tend to try to measure life in black and white.” His music career has consisted of 1500 concerts and 10 albums and with his is latest project, McVicker looks towards the mysterious grey love of God. He says, “I hope the songs remind us that God’s all-encompassing love connects with us in all situations and through every circumstance. After growing up in Kansas, McVicker began working with the late, great Rich Mullins. The two of them performed concerts together, wrote songs, and were roommates. Then, McVicker was in the car wreck that killed Mullins. Shortly after Rich’s death, and while Mitch was still deep in recovery, the two won the GMA’s Dove Award for song of the year, for their writing of “My Deliverer”. After a lengthy recovery, he began his own musical journey. Rich Mullins has influenced Mitch McVicker’s thoughts as much as he has influenced his music. This can be heard as McVicker speaks of embarking on his latest concert tour, “At this point in my life, I am setting out to be guided by the Love of God. Being led by love is a lot more scary, ambiguous, and, yes, grey, than following steps simply for the sake of the steps.” He continues, “I want to live in the grey. That’s not to say that anything goes, rather, that’s to say that everything is included. Jesus seems to point out that the Kingdom of God is built upon a vast grey love.” The Grey (When Black & White Fade) is the deep-lyriced, folk-rock that McVicker’s loyal listeners have come to love and expect. However, this self-produced endeavor is being lauded as his most artful and expressive project to date.

"Helped along by his comedian uncle Louie in the early days, the St. Paul singer shoved off with a Dave Matthews Band-derived quintet called the Nathan Anderson Project in the late '90s. Last year, he started a solo career with the CD "Long Five Days," which featured sly pop-rock in the Matchbox Twenty vein."
