“Calls to mind the songsmithery of Neil Finn and Ben Harper—a thoughtful songwriter with a gift for simple melodies and powerful emotion.” TIME OUT (UK)
A genre-hopper at heart, Mitchell’s music has evolved to embrace the heartfelt simplicity and story-telling of country and blues, the authenticity of classic singer-songwriters (like some of his inspirations: John Lennon, Joni Mitchell, Neil Finn and Paul Kelly) and the contemporary eclectic freedom of pop n’rock, from ABBA and AC/DC to Prince.
“His song-writing skills put him in a league above.” Americana UK
