Jason Mitchell is a singer/songwriter, poet, storyteller who currently resides in Kelowna, British Columbia. He made his debut with a deeply personal collection of songs on the CD, 'The World is Flat' which was released in May 2000 by Warner Music Canada. The CD was well received and has been heard on radio stations and satellite networks in both Canada and the United States. With the CD release came an extensive tour schedule across Canada in which Jason's true joy and passion for his music and performing live was shared with many audiences. Jason has opened for 'Blue Rodeo' in both Montreal and Toronto, as well as for the 'Cowboy Junkies' at the Tulip Festival in Ottawa and 54/40 in BC. Other shows of interest have included; Toronto Street Festival, Much Music Interview, Winnipeg Westend Cultural Center, Myer Horowitz Theater (Edmonton), University College of the Caribou (Kamloops), Vancouver East Cultural Center, White Rock Theater, Chapters bookstores across Canada, Virgin Records Megastore (Vancouver), A&B Sound (Kelowna), Liberty Lounge (Calgary), Holy Joes (Toronto), Side Track Café (Edmonton) and the Railway Club in Vancouver. Jason also released two music videos which were played on Much Music, Much More Music, C.M.T., and Musique Plus. Jason has also performed live on Canada AM, the CFMI Morning Show with Brother Jake, Urban Rush TV Show as well as Breakfast Television. Three of his songs were also chosen for the soundtrack of a C.T.V. production called, 'The Stolen Miracle'. Jason's second CD 'Little Coma' was just released on February 21st 2004. Jason has very much appreciated the creative control he has enjoyed over this project. He is also thrilled by the collaborative energy contributed by band-mates Ed Johnson and Jordon Carrier (of Cozy Bones fame) as well as Producer Larry Anschells who has worked with such notables as Nickleback, Pearl Jam, Sarah McLachlan and recently Bif Naked. The magic and honesty of Jason's music occurs on stage with his energetic live performance. Jason mixes an acoustic bare-bones approach to his songs with a fuller meatier sound. He has a unique ability to quell the room's chatter, captivating his audience with his dynamic voice and outgoing stage presence. Notable reviews of Jason's music to date: Brother Jake - CFMI Morning Show 'The best raw home grown talent I have heard' David Chesney - DC Entertainment & Former CBS Records Marketing 'A charming stage presence with a strong connection to his audience. He is much more than your typical singer songwriter'. Ian Nathanson - Ottawa Sun 'Waxing Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan poetic with a musical dose of Tom Waits and Cat Stevens, Mitchell is chock full of melodic potential.' Mike Ross - Edmonton Sun 'With a strong voice, Dylanesque music and Duchovny-esque good looks, Mitchell could go far.' John Kendle - Winnipeg Sun 'An emotive and inspired vocalist, Mitchell sings intense, observational tales of love and longing. Amid the noisy sheen of the teen posters who dominate today's world, his sound is refreshing.' Lisa Wilton - Calgary Sun 'Mitchell's observational, human behavior-inspired songwriting and emotionally raw and expressive vocals have been compared to fellow singer-songwriter poets like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan.'
