Mitch King

Born and raised on the Gold Coast, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Mitch King spends his days travelling around Australia in his campervan, playing his music at shows and festivals across the country. He first started playing guitar at the age of 14, spending hours in his bedroom playing music, honing his skills and listening to artists like John Mayer, Jimmy Hendrix and Santana. In 2014, Mitch independently released his first album, A Life Under The Sun. The single ‘Coming Back’ reached new heights when it was picked up by the US football team the Green Bay Packers, who played his song at their season opener game and shared it across their social media. The song has since had over 20 million streams on US Pandora radio. Mitch then released EP, Southerly Change in 2016. It went straight to the top of the blues chart, where it remained for 10 days straight. More recently he’s had success with a bunch of single releases with his single “Burning” amassing nearly 3 million Spotify streams. Mitch has graced festival stages the likes of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, St Kilda Festival and Blues on Broadbeach, and supported artists such as Tones And I, America The Band, and Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson. In January 2021 Mitch announced his signing to Michael Gudinski’s newest label, Reclusive Records. Simultaneously he released his newest single ‘Oil & Water’, which was co-written with Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel).
