This singer and songwriter, guitarist and performer from Casey, Illinois (between Charleston and the Indiana border), takes his belief in the power of song quite seriously. His physical voice, deep and moving, fits his artistic voice as Mitch Faulkner sings his self-penned songs in a "alternative country rock" genre, concerning "the risks and rewards of living life to its fullest, and the plot twists that can happen," as is explained in his press information. Calling on quality contemporary songwriter influences, Mitch cites top-shelf performers such as Jason Isbel and Tyler Childers as examples of where he's coming from and where he's going to, as he keeps the songs intense, yet relatable, full of raw emotion and understandable compassion. While living close to nature with his family nearby, Mitch uses his background as a Midwestern-raised guy who spent time in the military, combined with a boatload of personal experiences, to forge a storyteller's life telling his own tales through voice and guitar.
