Who I Am
Danny Mitchell is a pianist, singer, composer, and songwriter based in Nashville, TN. He has performed around the country in venues including Chicago's House of Blues, Hollywood's Hotel Cafe, and Nashville's famed Grand Ole Opry. As a solo artist, Mitchell has released 4 studio albums. His latest, a 2014 LP titled "Gone, Baby, Gone", showcases his maturation as a songwriter and singer. The album calls to aural memory names like Bruce Hornsby, Norah Jones, and Harry Connick Jr. Like these artists, Mitchell incorporates elements of jazz styles while maintaining all the accessibility of mainstream pop music.
Mitchell’s musical arsenal goes deeper than just his singer-songwriter façade. He holds a bachelor’s degree in jazz piano and composition – the compositions ranging from small chamber pieces to full symphonic works. His "Dawning of a Soul" was performed by the National Wind Ensemble in New York City’s Carnegie Hall under the direction of H. Robert Reynolds. Since moving to Nashville in 2008, Mitchell has worked steadily as a freelance songwriter, arranger, orchestrator, and pianist.
