Jenny Mitchell is bringing her award-winning folk/alt-country sound to the Tauherenikau 2024 Music in the Country Festival. Don’t miss out on her amazing act, book tickets now!
“Alt folk-country” is how Jenny Mitchell describes her sound. With a rich, husky voice and extensive songwriting and touring experience, her musical journey has taken her from performing more traditional country to incorporating more alternative, folk and rock influences into her sound.
Originally from Gore and now calling Wellington home, Jenny Mitchell is a dynamic storyteller who is rapidly capturing fans across the motu and the globe. Her music is full of warmth, truth and familiar harmonies – think the best of The Chicks + Norah Jones.
Described by Rolling Stone as, “her best work yet,” her 2022 album, Tug of War, is a deep and emotional dive for the artist and the listener. With songs inspired by new love, change, loss and her discovery of Lucille Ball, it finds Jenny at her most raw and honest while creating a musical work that’s as rich and fertile as the farming country where she grew up. Tug of War was released via Cooking Vinyl Australia and received nominations for a 2023 Australian Golden Guitar and Aotearoa Music Award and features the pivotal release of Trouble Finds a Girl. A collaboration with Tami Neilson, the stirring anthem directly addresses the mistreatment of women in the music industry and was crowned the 2022 APRA Best Country Song.
No stranger to the road, Jenny was an official showcase artist at BIGSOUND 2022 (AU) and Folk Alliance International 2023 (U.S) and has supported artists including Fanny Lumsden (AU) and Nadia Reid.
