This past Wednesday at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg, Mitch Rowland, renowned for his multi-instrumental prowess and significant contributions to Harry Styles' band, took the stage on his very first solo tour to support his debut album, 'Come June'. Taking the stage shortly after 9:30 pm with a full band—which also included his wife, Sarah Jones, on drums, a fellow member of the Harry Styles touring band—the night became even more special with the unexpected appearance of Ben Harper, who joined Rowland for a stunning collaborative performance that left the audience in awe. Harper also joined his daughter, Harris Harper, who opened the show. Earlier that day, Mitch and Harper performed together on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Mitch Rowland, primarily known in music circles as Harry Styles' guitarist and collaborator, has been making a name for himself beyond the shadow of pop superstardom. With a keen sense of musicality and an adeptness at blending genres, Rowland's solo work showcases his versatility and deep understanding of music. His performance at the Music Hall was no exception, offering a setlist that ranged from folk-infused melodies to rock anthems, all delivered with impeccable skill and heartfelt emotion.

The highlight of the night was undoubtedly when Ben Harper, a musician celebrated for his soulful blend of blues, folk, and rock, joined Rowland on stage. Together, they performed 'All The Way Back'. The synergy between Harper's distinctive slide guitar and Rowland's rhythmic precision created a once-in-a-lifetime performance that resonated deeply with everyone present.

Beyond the music, Rowland's stage presence was captivating, drawing the audience closer into his musical journey. His humble demeanor and gratitude towards the fans' support added a layer of intimacy to the show, making the performance feel like a gathering of close friends rather than a concert.

Mitch Rowland's performance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg was a celebration of artistic expression and collaboration. As Rowland continues to carve out his path in the music industry, it's clear that his influence and appeal extend far beyond his work with Harry Styles. Nights like these serve as a reminder of the magic that live music can create, leaving an indelible mark on all who were lucky enough to be in attendance. On Thursday night, he brings his talent to New York's legendary Irving Plaza for another show as the tour wraps up later this month."
