JENNY MITCHELL (NZ)
Jenny Mitchell is New Zealand’s brightest rising star, blending country, folk and Americana.
Influenced by Gillian Welch, Allison Krauss and Miranda Lambert, Jenny’s love for storytelling is at the core of her craft. With a New Zealand Gold Guitar under her hat in 2017, Jenny also placed 3rd on New Zealand’s Got Talent years earlier at the tender age of 14. Her 2015 album, ‘The Old Oak’ debuted at #1 on the NZ Country iTunes Charts, #2 on the Independent Music NZ Charts & received critical acclaim from around the globe. Mitchell’s current album ‘Wildfires’ was recorded with an all-Australian cast, with award winning producer Matt Fell leading the team. With the likes of Shane Nicholson (acoustics), Glen Hannah (electric guitar), Luke Moller (fiddle) & Josh Schuberth (percussion & drums), this album was destined for greatness. An album that earnt Jenny the title of NZ Recorded Music Country Artist of the Year in 2019. From the first word to the last, ‘Wildfires’ takes listeners on a journey through the bittersweet tang of leaving home, the fragility of first love & the importance of family, told from an honest, travel loving heart from Southern NZ. A seasoned performer who’s already played to audiences in Sweden, Ireland, Australia and her homeland of New Zealand.
