Mitch Allan is a Grammy nominated Songwriter and was the lead singer of one of Will's favorite bands of all time: SR-71.  Mitch talks to Will about the Baltimore music scene of the mid 90s, the creation of SR-71's debut album Now You See Inside and touring the world in support of that record, his favorite guitars for recording, and how Bowling For Soup's version of 1985 from the band's third album led to writing songs for artists like Demi Lovato, Scott Stapp, Kelly Clarkson, and Jason Derulo and what he's learned about songwriting from working with many different artists.
