Mitch James

Bio

In September 2018, Auckland-based Mitch James released his self-titled, debut album. One year on it is certified Gold and features 1 Platinum (21) and 3 Gold Singles (Bright Blue Skies, Old News, All the Ways to Say Goodbye) as well as 3x 1 NZ Airplay Hits. James' talent isn't just being recognised in his home country; he's also collected Gold records in Sweden (No Fixed Abode) and Australia (Bright Blue Skies) and amassed a staggering 120 million streams worldwide.

As well as opening for Ed Sheeran across 3 shows to a combined audience of 160,000 people, he has played NZ’s biggest festivals (Rhythm & Vines, Bay Dreams) and sold out headline shows in both NZ and the UK. His most recent NZ tour sold over 10,000 tickets.

In 2019 he was been nominated for 3 NZ Music Awards – Album of the Year, Best Solo Artist and Best Pop Artist. In 2018 he won MTV’s European Music Award for Best New Zealand Act.

James has accomplished all of this by staying true to himself and writing songs of real substance, based on the tangible experiences of his lifetime.

“All the lyrics mean a lot to me, this is all real s*** that's happened to me, or to people around me,” he says. “It's about me chronicling my own journey but also putting stories into a broader sense so that other people will also understand them.”

The awards, accolades and huge streaming numbers prove that people don't just understand his songs, they love them. And this is just the beginning.
