Southern songwriter Jenny Mitchell is one of New Zealand's brightest musical talents.
Jenny's love for storytelling through song is at the core of her writing & who she is an artist. Influenced in her younger years by American artists such as Hank Williams, The Dixie Chicks & Gillian Welch - she is a songwriter that blends alt-country, folk, and Americana into her own captivating style.
“She's an artist who knows exactly who she is and feels no need to give way." - Southland Times (NZ)
At 18, this songwriter has won a NZ Gold Guitar Award, MLT Songwriting Award, Southland Entertainer of the Year Award & played to audiences in Sweden, Ireland, Australia & countless shows in her homeland of NZ. Her debut album, 'The Old Oak,' debuted at number 1 on the NZ Country iTunes Charts, number 2 on the Independent Music NZ Charts & received critical acclaim from around the globe.
"Jenny has re-defined the lessons she has learned and has added some freshness to an authentic tradition of Americana-Roots-Country music. One listen will convince you that this young lady understands it, she gets it with no showboating." - John Apice, No Depression Reviews (USA)
Her unique style has delighted audiences of all shapes and sizes, from the thousands at the Tamworth Country Music Festival Opening Concert to intimate house concerts in her home region, Southland.
