This June, multi award-winning artist, Jenny Mitchell, is returning to the Wellington Bluegrass Society for her debut with local bassist Aaron Stewart and Auckland’s prolific violist Jess Hindin. Jenny’s music defies easy categorisation but if you admire music by genre-defying artists from Emmylou Harris to Kasey Chambers and Jason Isbell, you are going to love her.
As seen on Seven Sharp, Jenny recently joined forces with the esteemed Tami Neilson to release the stirring ‘Trouble Finds a Girl.’ A powerful and direct response to sexual misconduct within the music industry. More recently, Jenny released the song ‘Lucy,’ a viola infused track that explores the battle of comparison and gratitude - inspired by the iconic Lucille Ball.
Mitchell made her stage debut at four with her country-music loving father Ron at the local country music club in Gore near Invercargill in New Zealand’s south. At 14 she placed third in national TV show New Zealand’s Got Talent, a formative experience which taught her how to stand up for herself and to believe in the songs she was writing.
The richness of Jenny’s life experiences is reflected in the variety of topics she addresses in her songs. Mitchell is a writer with important things to say, and brave enough to say them.
