Mitch James Mitch James
RELEASE DATE: 14th September 2018
Mitch James’ journey has taken him from sleeping rough and busking on the streets of Europe, to topping charts, performing sold-out shows, and now, his debut full-length album.
The album sees the 23yr old artist pushing new ground in the studio - seeking out some of New Zealand’s most well-known musicians, Ji Fraser and Eli Paewai from Six60.
Even before the release of the upcoming record, the Kiwi singer-songwriter had become one of NZ’s largest streamed artists – surpassing 30 million streams on Spotify – with singles such as ‘No Fixed Abode’ (certified gold in Sweden), ‘Move On’ and ‘All The Ways To Say Goodbye’, all earning James a place in the hearts of fans around the world.
Recorded at Neil Finn’s legendary Roundhead Studios, the world-class album showcases a maturity and growth in James’ song writing abilities. The honest and emotive collection of songs (written in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Sweden) reflect Mitch’s journey through young-adulthood exploring love, loss and life.
Mitch has chalked up a stunning list of accolades including opening 3 NZ stadium shows for mega-star Ed Sheeran, released hits like ‘No Fixed Abode’ (#1 on Spotify’s Viral Chart), ‘Move On’, ( #1 NZ airplay) and ‘All The Ways To Say Goodbye’ (6M streams) been nominated for ‘Best Pop Artist’ at the 2017 VNZMAs, performed at some of New Zealand’s biggest music events including Bay Dreams and Rhythm and Vines, and carried out a nationwide headline tour in a Kombi van.
Mitch will return to Australia this September to support ARIA Award winner Conrad Sewell on his COME CLEAN tour. He is set to perform to sold-out audiences at The Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, The Howler in Melbourne, and at the Woolly Mammoth in Brisbane.
