“Singer –Songwriter Fiona Kennedy is one to watch in 2022..!” Evening Echo
“This talented Irish lady has the ability to change mood at the drop of a hat…. More earworms than you can cope with” Progradar U.K.
Anna Mitchell has released two LP albums ‘ Down To The Bone’ 2015 and her self titled second album in 2018. Intertwining fragility and power, Anna’s records are made with confidence, intuition and empathy, assuredly alternating between sparse, atmospheric acoustic folk and slightly gnarled, swaying dreamlike soundscapes and hypnotic grooves.
“If David Lynch were to reset Blue Velvet in the wilds of West Cork, then Anna Mitchell’s evocative, dark songs of life and love’s painful kiss would sit well on the soundtrack. ★ ★ ★ ★” — The Irish Times
