Born and raised on the Gold Coast, Mitch King has always loved music, as far back as he can remember. He spent many a road trip listening to artists such as AC/DC, Bob Dylan, John Mayer, Neil Young and Coldplay, while traveling on family vacations.

Mitch first started playing guitar at the age of 14. Growing up he didn’t watch much TV, so he’d spend hours playing and listening to music in his bedroom. He connected with John Mayer’s Continuum, which sparked his fascination for electric guitar, and led him to discover Jimmy Hendrix and Santana. But it was Australian folk, rock & blues singer Kim Churchill, who set Mitch on the path to embrace his talent – he saw Kim performing at Woodford Folk Festival, and he was immediately captivated and inspired.

When he turned 15, Mitch began busking most weekends in his hometown of Mt Tambourine,  with an acoustic guitar in his hand, and playing the only 4 songs he knew on repeat, he impressed the passing grannies of Mt Tambourine in South East Queensland, where he earned enough money to buy his first car and build up his music gear arsenal.

In 2014, Mitch independently released his first album, A Life Under The Sun. The single ‘Coming Back’ was picked up by the US football team the Green Bay Packers, who played his song at their season opening match, and shared it across their social media.

During this time, Mitch made the bold decision to move into a campervan, to travel around Australia performing at festivals and venues across the country. He entered the Tamworth Country Music Festival Busking Competition, where he performed in front of 5,000 people, and won the competition. Then only a few weeks later, he was crowned Hottest New Act at St Kilda Festival.

In 2016, Mitch released an EP, Southerly Change. It went straight to the top of the blues chart, where it remained for 10 days straight.

More recently, Mitch has released the singles ‘Burning’ and ‘Believe’, the former of which has over 2.5 million streams. Recent artist supports include Tones And I, America The Band, and Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson.

In 2020, Mitch is focusing on writing new music and collaborating with artists including The Temper Trap, the Pierce Brothers, and Diesel.
