JOSHUA MITCHELL Singer, songwriter Joshua Mitchell credits his smooth soulful blend of Hip Hop, R&B, Gospel, and Jazz to a host of great musical pioneers; from the legends of Ella Fitzgerald, Donny Hathaway, Steve Wonder and Sting to the heavenly voices he heard growing up in the Chicago church circuit. This honey-voiced tenor who originally intended on being a doctor, majoring in Biology/ Pre- Medicine at Northwestern University decided to switch his major to Performance Studies after landing a role in a theatrical production during his first year in college. It was around this time that Joshua finally embraced the thought that his true calling in life was to inspire with the gift of song and other performance ventures. Throughout his years at Northwestern University Joshua Mitchell continued to hone his skills by participating in various talent shows and plays not only as a performer but also as an artistic director; producing musicals and choreographing various dance shows. While very successful in his artistic endeavors in Chicago, Joshua wanted to further his career and thus moved to New York City where he continues to grow; gracing the stages of NYC's Joe's Pub, Elbow Room, Dillon's, Jimmy's Uptown, Downtime, Soul Café, Village Underground, CBGB's, Bowery Poetry Club, Le Bar Bat, Moca Lounge, Ashford & Simpson's Sugar Bar, Baggott Inn, SOB's, and a host of other venues. With his dazzling stage presence, dynamic vocal range, and positive spirit, Joshua Mitchell's live performances leave the audience mesmerized. From scatting, to gospel belting, to smooth crooning, his versatile style sets him above the rest. His lyrics are deep, heartfelt, and truthful. Seeing him live is truly an uplifting and exciting experience. As an actor he has performed with companies like Inside Broadway, Straight Gaffin Productions, The Sun & Splendor Theatre, and the Mama's Foundation for the Living Arts. He can also be seen in an international Vagabond Films commercial for Amena Telecommunications.
