Mitchell hails from Vermont where he grew up on an Addison County farm. She started performing and songwriting at the age of seventeen. At the age of 21, in 2002, she recorded her debut “The Song They Sand When Rome Fell” in a single afternoon. The album was released shortly afterwards. A year later, she got the first appreciation in the form of New Folk Award which she won at the Kerrville Folk Music Festival. Her second album, “Hymns for the Exiled” came out two years later on the Waterbug Records Label. This was when she caught the attention of Ani DiFranco with her recording. DiFranco got Mitchell signed to her own label, the Righteous Babe Record.
Mitchell has also explored her talents in the field of folk opera. 2006 came with the draft of her debut folk opera “Hadestown” which was written in collaboration with Ben T. Matchstick, the director and Michael Chorney, the arranger. A year later, its revised version was staged. Although Mitchell was busy with staging the productions of the play, it couldn’t stop her from releasing her third album “The Brightness.” This was her first Righteous Babe record which came out in 2007. In the third annual Folk Alliance Awards of 2008, she was selected as a nominee in the category of “Contemporary Artist”. The same year i.e. 2007, in the month of September, a country EP of Mitchell recorded with Rachel Ries hit the shelves. It was again a Righteous Babe Records release.
The idea of making a recording of “Headstown” struck Mitchell in 2009 and was released in 2010. Headstown, a star packed opera, is a Greek myth about Orpheus and Eurydice and has received favorable remarks by the viewers and critics. Set in the depression era of a post-apocalyptic world, the tale revolves around the themes of poverty and fear. The original recording includes the guest appearances by Ani DiFranco, Justin Vernon, Greg Brown and The Haden Triplets. However, the cast gets changed to the local artists of the town she’s playing in whenever she has performed it around the world. This time as she performs the opera live in your city, grab hold of the cheap Anais Mitchell tickets to mark your attendance.
Mitchell’s warm and ingratiating music style goes well with her impeccably crafted song lyrics. Had it not been for the poetry and melody, Mitchell would have made a very fine novelist. Her fearlessly emotive sense of expression can be compared to figures like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Gillian Welch. Her latest album “Young Man is America” hit the stores in the early 2012. It was released on her own Wilderland Records label. Inspired by her father’s writings, this album was a response to the dominating economic conditions of US and was received an instant success. The revolutionary songwriting and the hint of surrealism and brawniness of ‘The Young Man in America’ shows how diverse she can be in her music. While most of the female folk singers depend on heavy acoustic music with story-based songs, Mitchell has defined a new shift that is somewhere in between folk and progressive rock. This album made its way in the Best of 2012 lists by The Independent, Wall Street Journal, Uncut and NPR.
Mitchell’s music style and performance has earned her encouraging response from the audience and other singers and songwriters. According to Allmuisc, she has got a certain urban jumpiness akin to Ani DiFranco. The single “Coming Down” from her latest album has been performed by Bon Iver on his tour to Australia. The North American leg of 2012 autumn tour of Bon Iver was opened by Mitchell.
