Mitchel MussoOver the past six years, Mitchel Musso has been establishing himself as a rising TV, movie and music star. He is best known for his role as Oliver "Smokin'" Oken on the Disney Channel series, Hannah Montana; but at just 17 years old, Mitchel has been in numerous movies (Secondhand Lions, Monster House) and TV shows ("Phineas and Ferb", Stacked and Oliver Beene) and has already had 3 hit songs on Radio Disney. "The In Crowd," his latest, reached #2 on the Radio Disney chart and his cover of "Lean on Me" reached #7 and spent 21 weeks on the chart. In May 2008, Disneymania 6 included the track "If I Didn't Have You," hit #5 and spent 16 weeks on the chart.

Mitchel's self-titled debut album is a pop/rock collection of emotional songs that instantly connect with his generation. Along with the universal topic - girls! ("Hey" & "Odd Man Out") the songs also tackle growing up, learning about life, fitting in ("The In Crowd") and dealing with fame ("Welcome to Hollywood"). Overall, the album is a heart-on-the sleeve declaration about life at this age.

Musso worked with some of the music industry's top producers and songwriters including Rolling Stone's Hot List Producers of the Year (2008) S*A*M & SLUGGO (Metro Station, Gym Class Heroes), Curt Schneider (Five For Fighting), Max Martin (Katy Perry, Carolina Liar), and Matthew Wilder (No Doubt). Along with 3 songs co-written by Musso, the album also includes a collaboration with his brother Mason, from Metro Station. Mason lends his vocals to the track "Shout It," a nod to Metro Station's double-platinum single, "Shake It."

Multi-faceted Mitchel Musso…Hannah Montana co-star ....actor/singer/songwriter/musician.... self-titled debut album due June 2. Mitchel's hit, "The In Crowd" available now on iTunes.
