LA Mitchell has got it made in terms of being a NZ musician. She is working with some of NZ's most amazing bands and our very own favourite superband, Fly My Pretties. Her previous single, 'When’s It’s All Too Much', has just made the Silver Scrolls top twenty long list, and her latest single is generating a lot of interest among music enthusiasts.
'Apple Heart' is a beautifully written soul-filled song that when played along with the Fly My Pretties band is heartbreaking but beautiful all in the same breath. She’s touring as part of AHoriBuzz and looking forward to more Fly My Pretties shows later this year. She’s also about to go on tour with Sola Rosa, performing the songs she recorded for their new album, as well as the support slot for the Auckland show on August 10. Go buy Apple Heart now!
In a time when New Zealand is abundant with great female vocalists, a new name is set to emerge that will make you sit up, take notice and give thanks to whatever it is that blesses Aotearoa with creative talent.
That name belongs to Lauren Anne Mitchell and 2007 sees the release of her first album Debut, a beautiful showcase of her undeniable talents in producing a distinctly New Zealand flavour of soul.
With Debut, Mitchell has uncorked a sparkling collection of seductive soul and jazz that reveals her undeniable talent as both a singersongwriter and musician. Her songs come from a place of honesty, laced with emotion as they narrate her progression as a woman and a musician.
