As a Franco-Ontarian artist from small-town Ontario, Mitch Jean makes music with strong roots. Since he first picked up a guitar at the age of twelve, he has explored many different musical styles, but has found his sound in the sweet spot between modern country and rock. Drawing inspiration from 80s guitar legends like Def Leppard, and the story-telling songwriting style of country artists like Eric Church, Mitch Jean has carved out a musical edge that is unique to him. He is a Canadian country rocker with stories to tell.
A dynamic front-person and performer, Mitch captures the attention of his audience with his exuberant energy, making every show an interactive experience. With his guitar shredding and powerhouse vocals, Mitch Jean puts on a show to remember, and this passion is not lost in his recordings either.
His songs explore themes of life inspired by nostalgia and the north, while bringing positivity and fun to his listeners. You can’t help but want to get lost down an old dirt road after listening to Mitch’s music. You can smell the smoke and gasoline and feel the denim. His songs bring you back to a certain place and time and the stories he tells through his music come from the heart and connect with his listeners on a deep level.
Mitch will be releasing new music in 2022 with Willow Sound Records (Ottawa/Nashville), produced by award-winning producer Steve Foley. His new single How I Love You will be out on February 4th, 2022.
“Mitch is a great treasure in the music scene in Northern Ontario. He is always readily available to share his skills and passion, whether it’s playing festivals or fundraisers or putting his son about on Facebook streams to give people a little joy when they need it. I’m glad we have him here and hope he continues his journey with great success.”
