He has a unique way of picking an acoustic guitar—something only the greats like Bon Iver possess, almost as if he was born to play it in the first place.

“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
