Aaron Mitchell - IN THE BAR
Aaron Mitchell is an indie-western folk/country singer, songwriter and visual artist. He was born and raised in the small rural town of Ft. Lupton, Colorado, but moved to Chicago in his early twenties to live the "big city" life. While cutting his teeth in Chicago as a musician, ironically Aaron found himself being drawn to the sound of early country music- taking him back to his roots of growing up a "city boy" in a "country town." After falling under the spell of artists like Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Dylan, John Prine, Townes Van Zandt and many others he started to carve out his own distinct sound as a songwriter.
Aaron explores all the ups and downs of life through his songwriting in an authentically vulnerable fashion. He's the real deal-- in that he is real. He is a heart wailer; deciphering codes and honoring the whispers of the muse. He can sing a romping' "stick it to the man" song and go right in to a heart broken ballad then top it off with a funny "tongue and cheek" ditty.
He will be releasing a new solo album early 2024 called FICTIONAL LOVER----single release of title track Fictional Lover will be released Friday, November 17 of 2023!!!
