Mutlu's first full-length CD LIVIN' IT, available in-stores and online July 22nd, is proof that the Philly Sound is alive and well. A culmination of 70's soul, R&B and pop, LIVIN' IT was produced by T-Bone Wolk (Hall & Oates, Elvis Costello) and features special guest performances by Philly's finest including Daryl Hall, Amos Lee and G. Love, as well as rising R&B star Raheem DeVaughn.
Philly born and bred, Mutlu started out at local open-mic nights before befriending Blue Note artist Amos Lee who gave him a shot to hit the road. Mutlu has since evolved into his own groove, mixing soulful sounds with a funky beat and enough optimism to raise the collective human roof. A talented and charismatic performer live, Mutlu recently had the opportunity to be the opener for Daryl Hall, Joe Jackson and British soul singer Adele. A relative unknown to their respective audiences, Mutlu averaged sales of 100 CD's per night proving if he plays, they will buy. More live dates to be announced shortly.
LIVIN' IT marks Mutlu's first full-length release for the EMI-based Manhattan Records.
