Mitch Grainger is Making a Scene
Making a Scene presents an interview with Mitch Grainger
Mitch Grainger is the perfect paradox. A white guy from Australia, who infuses the Blues & Roots genre’s traditional styling’s with a confidence, and depth of spirit, that has seen him compared to the likes of Robert Johnson* by American music critics.
His sound, built on a talented configuration of vocals, harmonica and guitar, has quietly been maturing for over 25 years like a fine single malt whiskey while he’s been performing and recording (behind the scenes) with some of Australia and the world’s greatest artists; such as Malcolm Young (AC/DC) and Harry Vanda (The Easybeats) to name but two.
When stepping into the light with his 2015 breakout solo acoustic release ‘The Blues’, Mitch Grainger and his high-energy stage show burst onto the blues & roots scene, like a field holler echoing from the deep dark south through a dusty 50’s tube amplifier.He packed houses in the US, Australia and Scandinavia, performed at prestigious festivals, such as the American Folk Alliance in Kansas City, and earned standing ovations while opening for Tommy Emmanuel across the North East of the USA.
Then in 2017, like the Sasquatch, he disappeared, turned recluse, and spent the next few years focusing on inventing and patenting a revolutionary new harmonica microphone called Dyna-Mic, which subsequently was used by Bob Dylan.
Now, with his Dyna-mic and a growing global fan base that includes over 120,000 subscribers on various social media platforms Mitch Grainger is taking his raw emotional form of Blues & Roots music up the metaphorical Mississippi river, out of the acoustic domain, and into the voltaic with a new album entitled ‘Plug It In’, scheduled for release in early 2023.
