Mitch King is not the quintessential musician. He’s a travelling rover and his music is inspired by his love of life and sense of freedom. His carefree nomadic lifestyle, close bond to nature and love for surfing is pure and it transpires though his songs.
Mitch’s music is recognized both nationally and internationally. Over the past year he has had many achievements, from his song “Coming Back” being used to promote NFL Green Bay Packers first home open season game in 2016, the song was used live at the game and on TV. He has performed internationally at festivals to Sell Out Headline Shows in Australia.
He has created a remarkable following by gracing the stages at many Australian festivals including St Kilda Festival, Byron Bay Bluesfest and Blues on Broadbeach to name a few.
Sweet combinations of electrified, inventive and acoustic music is the best way to describe Mitch’s Roots and Southern Blues style. Upon witnessing his live shows, you will quickly see his exceptional ability to captivate his audience by delivering honest and refreshing performances.
Mitch released his EP “Southerly Change” in January 2017. A 6 track EP that debuted at #2 for 10 days on the iTunes Blues Charts. A hugely successful Australian Tour followed this release.
Now fast forward to September and Mitch is set to release a new single, called ‘Burning’. Out on September 8th, this exciting new track is full of beautiful harmonies and emotionally driven lyrics. A national tour will follow late September and will see Mitch continue to command eager audiences that have cemented him as one of Australia’s most exciting acts.
“One of the most special parts of the evening (or early morning) was coming out of a Chinese restaurant at 3am and seeing a small crowd gathered at the corner of Little Bourke and Swanston streets, below the arches at the entrance to Chinatown. As we walked toward Swanston Street the musician sitting in the middle of the road began to play – harmonica, drums, guitar. His voice rang out and up Little Bourke Street and within minutes about 50 people had surrounded him – an intimate, open-air concert featuring a one-man blues band. People were dancing, stamping their feet, yelling in ecstasy. We were all transfixed. His name is Mitch King, and he was the best thing I saw at White Night.” Katya Wachtel – Broadsheet – excerpt from White Night 2017: Gallery + Recap – Broadsheet
“Mitch King is an absolute explosion of talent, with fingertips of steel and vocal pipes of a howling steam train, this young lad would be one of our all time favourite artists to have ever graced the ‘Porch’. Great things are a comin’ for this musical love child of Kim Churchill and Ash Grunwald. Unbelievably spell binding to watch, this salty blonde blueshound is definitely one to keep your eye on.” Sharni Honor – The Porch Sessions 2016
