Jenny Mitchell


“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.

Growing up in Gore, New Zealand’s country music capital, Mitchell’s upbringing was steeped in the genre. Music commonly played in the house where she grew up included The Dixie Chicks (now known as The Chicks), Johnny Cash, George Strait and Slim Dusty. Her father, Ron Mitchell, is also a singer/songwriter who has released his own country album, and her younger twin sisters, Nicola and Maegan, also sing. Jenny grew up attending the New Zealand Gold Guitar Awards, which take place annually in Gore, and has been singing in public since the age of four.
