His expansive vocal range, dynamic charisma, and immediate starpower have also enchanted both fans and critics alike. He’s landed features from Just Jared in addition to performing on The Today Show, Good Day New York, and KTLA. Not to mention, he ignited Arthur Ashe Kid’s Day—a proving ground for numerous superstars. With all of these accolades, a growing fan base, and instantly recognizable voice, AJ Mitchell has positioned himself for a massive 2019. Get ready!


Hailing from Bellville, Illinois, AJ gravitated towards music at an early age, sharing his talent on social media with acclaimed short form videos and cover versions.  He initially posted videos to get feedback ‘from other people than my parents,’ he says, but at thirteen his following blossomed.  He moved to Los Angeles, CA, in 2016 to pursue a music career full-time, releasing the self-penned, bittersweet single “Used To Be” in 2017. Other songs followed, “Somebody,” and “Mind,” showcasing his multifaceted range and silky vocal style all his own.  With over 35 million streams under his belt and his Epic Records debut EP kicking off the next exciting chapter of his career, the music world is more than ‘hopeful’ that AJ Mitchell has staying power.
