Melbourne based singer-songwriter Ben Mitchell is a genre-crossing troubadour, writing and performing indie-folk/indie-pop-rock and alt-country-blues. Time Out UK compared his ‘songsmithery’ to Neil Finn and Ben Harper describing Mitchell as ‘a thoughtful songwriter with a gift for simple melodies and powerful emotion.’
Each of the 31 tracks on Mitchell’s two albums, Chance To Love (2015), and Summer Lover (2016) received radio play across Australia, with spins in UK and Ireland too. London’s Get Rhythm Magazine wrote Mitchell is, “A powerful performer with bags of stage presence and memorable songs.” Americana UK said “His song-writing skills put him in a league above.”
In June this year, Mitchell achieved his first Number 1 on the AMRAP Regional Chart. Current album, Summer Lover is getting glowing reviews including being described as. “…the perfect antidote to the long winter months. It will warm your soul and brighten your mood,” Myles O’Neill Shaw (PBS FM) and, “Another fine release and collection of songs from Ben that showcases his development as one of Melbourne’s emerging singer/songwriters,” Neil Rogers (3RRR).
On Thursday 24th November Ben Mitchell makes his Sydney debut at The Newsagency, 375 Enmore Rd, Marrickville.
