From anthropology graduate student to actor to singer/songwriter and storyteller, Katie Anne Mitchell has settled on the term “creative universalist” to encapsulate all manner of artistic sins. Her debut album “The Many Lives of Mockingbird”was a reflection of her diverse approach with a half-audiobook/half-song concoction that is reflective, humorous, and just a little bit mad. Her forthcoming EP ‘Alice’s Land’ (due out in 2020) will be just as strange in it’s own way. She' promises.
Mitchell is currently running her one-woman story and song show ‘The Songs of the Nearly Forgotten’ in which she explores the themes of isolation, femininity and finding your place in this world through conducting a seance. That’s right. A seance. With chanting and all that jazz. As one fan describes on watching her perform at Folk Alliance International that watching her is like watching the musical'Theatre of the Absurd.'She likes that. She currently lives in Los Angeles and is a lover of wine, cheese, and trouble.
