Based in Perth (for now), Prolific Kiwi composer and collaborator, Eden does some crazy stuff for a living. He finds himself in darkened theatres, boiling west Auckland warehouses, the NT desert 200km from anywhere with a mad Scotsman, hire vans, lighting trucks, ice skating rinks at dawn in Wellington, overheating vintage french cars in Noosa with impossible gear sticks, rehearsal rooms with actors acting out strange troll orgies, world class recording studios in LA, abandoned resorts in upstate NY, Bunnings just before closing, to get that PERFECT shot of someone shopping for a door mat.
He wonders what is next.
Mitchell started playing the guitar in 2016 at age 10 after finding a discarded guitar on a verge side pickup and persuading his parents to fork out for some new strings.
He started busking early in 2017, playing a wide variety of acoustic covers from his favourite artists such as John Butler, Tash Sultana, and The Pierce Brothers and did more than 100 performances in that first year, busking at various locations, festivals, events, open mic nights and various other gigs around Perth, the North West and regional South Western Australia.
He was accepted into the John Curtin College of the Arts specialist music program in 2018 where he currently studies music specialising in guitar.
