Jordan Mitchell

Jordan Mitchell will be joining us this year at the August 5, 2018 Wine and Oyster Festival On Sunny Slope Farm in support of the Artisan Center of Virginia. Come on out and listen to their jazz music as you taste wine from 10 other Shenandoah Valley Virginia Wineries.

My music will either break your heart or melt it. I moved t0 Nashville, TN to write songs and tell my story. Born and raised in Las Vegas, I naturally gravitated towards bright neon lights of entertainment, and developed my real love for music growing up singing in my church choir. Artists like Patsy Cline, Ella Fitzgerald, Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Reba McEntire, Grace Potter, and Bonnie Raitt have done it best, and I want to follow the paths they have paved.

Other than music, my second love is riding horses. My dad taught me to ride before I could walk, and I even earned a National Championship for my college Equestrian Team.

I love Jameson, tacos, shoe shopping, and making people smile. When I’m not making music with my friends, I pay the rent working at Blackbird Studios in Nashville. I write songs that are witty, heartfelt, and true. They’re a little bit folky, a little bit muddy, and just might make you cry.

I’m charming and stubborn enough to win you over, and you’ll be happy I did. Just like great music, I’m not trying to be anything but real…real easy to love and hard to forget.
