At 24 years old and after 8 years with music as her craft, Lisa Mitchell has unquestionably earned her slightly lop-sided crown in Australia as Indie-pop Pixie Princess. With influences including Neil Young, Martha Wainwright, Feist, Patti Smith and Beirut and vocal comparisons to Joanna Newsome, her diverse rise to prominence has been eventful.
Her pilgrimage has encompassed an initial ill-fitting stint on a music reality show, two Top 10 albums in Australia, her glorious win of the prestigious AMP Award (Australia’s equivalent to The Mercury Music Prize) and impressively hitting the Top 10 on alternative radio Triple J’s annual sought after prize – The Hottest 100.
In the UK her single “Neopolitan Dreams” was featured on an artsy washing soap ad and was covered by a German artist for Eurovision prompting the song to reach Top 30 in Germany and one of her first ever gigs was at the illustrious Glastonbury Festival.
Mitchell returns with a voice that has been described as a “distinctive and quirky voice, which trembles with emotion”, The Music.
Her third album that is yet to be recorded, will begin with the evocative song “Wah Ha” which has a Bossa Nova twist and was co-produced by Lisa Mitchell and Tim Harvey, mixed by Eric J (Chet Faker, Flume).
She has chosen London to launch her new material at two special headline shows on 12th November at The Islington and 13th November at Slaughtered Lamb tickets available here, before heading back to a farm in country Victoria to record what will be her third album that will be shared with the world mid 2015.
