Lisa Mitchell announces three date acoustic tour, supported by East!

Lisa Mitchell is back! ...Literally. The singer has only recently arrived back home after performing some sold out shows in the UK. But, on all fronts, the lovely lady is very much back on our radar, following the release of new single "Wah Ha". Mitchell has today announced an acoustic tour to celebrate the single's release, a short run of dates which will see her play in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Supporting Mitchell on all three dates is emerging artist East, who is also doing great things on the local scene.

Album Review: Various Artists - Melodie Française (2013 Compilation)

We may seem far from a world of heightened suffering and melodramatic love affairs but the Australian reworking of French classics on Melodie Française could be the perfect soundtrack to a wine-heavy dinner party. Francophiles will love it – there is more value upon recognising the originals – but the album speaks to any music lover.

Live Review: Paul Kelly and Neil Finn + Lisa Mitchell - Sydney Opera House (10.03.13)


To see a first time Sydney Opera House performance of one of Australia’s newest talents at the same time as seeing a showcase of vintage Australiana is a pleasure beyond comparison.

Zoo Twilights, Lisa Mitchell + Georgia Fair

After preparing a picnic for our journey, we venture to the Melbourne Zoo to see Lisa Mitchell and Georgia Fair for the Zoo Twilight session. Wandering through the Zoo gates, we enter a world full of interesting and exotic animals. Now, I’m not sure if you've ever been to the Melbourne Zoo, but it hosts a range of wonderful exhibits including elephants, giraffes and orangutan, and fortunately for us, these were left open for the visitors who were lucky enough to secure tickets to the sold out event.

For a woman who has appeared on a national singing show, collaborated with some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most talented musicians, and is about to go on tour as the support act for two of the biggest names in Australian music history in Paul Kelly and Neil Finn, Lisa Mitchell seems unaffected by everything she’s achieved.

Album Review: Lisa Mitchell – Bless This Mess (2012)

We all know the back-story of singer songwriter Lisa Mitchell . A folk singer whose raw talent saw her go a lot further in the 2006 season of Australian Idol than the manufactured pop star idea behind the show should have allowed. Her debut album Wonder was a huge success and now she’s released a new collection of songs Bless This Mess .

the AU interview: Lisa Mitchell (Melbourne)

When we first laid eyes on Lisa Mitchell, she was a wide-eyed 16 year old, who was thrilled to be missing school while appearing as a contestant on Australian Idol. She was initially one of the judge’s favourite contenders for the title; however after her unique voice failed to translate into certain genres, the judge’s interest waned and she was eliminated in sixth place.

She returns in 2012 with her sophomore album Bless This Mess, and the album’s lead single and title track again challenges the audience’s perception of the English-born singer-songwriter.
