Multi-instrumental Queensland singer-songwriter Mitch King spends much of his time travelling around Australia, performing his music at shows and festivals across the country. #AgnesBluesFest is delighted to welcome him to the Marquee Stage for the very first time in 2024.
Highly regarded for his evocative, raw and dynamic live performances, Mitch combines electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica, kick and snare drums plus tambourine. His distinctive Southern blues, Australian roots and folk music combine in a sweet mixture of inventive, electrified and acoustic.
From humble beginnings busking in his home town of Mount Tamborine, Mitch has since sold out headline shows, performed at many festivals including St Kilda Music Festival, Blues on Broadbeach and Gympie Muster and built a fanbase to over 60 million worldwide streams. He has supported America the Band on their Australian National tour in 2019, Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson and Tones and I.
Mitch’s 2016 debut EP “Southerly Change” went straight to the top of the Blues Charts and remained for 10 days straight. More recently he independently released a handful of singles with ‘Burning’ having over 3 million streams on Spotify.
US football team Green Bay Packers played his song “Coming Back” from his debut album “A life under the sun” at their season opening match and shared it on all their socials. The track has since clocked 30 million streams on US Pandora Radio.
In January 2021 Mitch announced his signing to the late Michael Gudinski’s label, Reclusive Records. He released his sophomore EP “The Open Doors” in September 2021 under Reclusive with one of the singles “Oil & Water” (co-written with Mark Lizotte aka “Diesel”) receiving an Honorary Mention from the 2022 International Song Writing Competition. Mitch is now back in the recording studio working on new music and is excited to share that he will be independently releasing a new single mid-year.
