Mitzy’s early career was very much influenced by traditional Country and Western artists such as Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton, and this genre is still a large part of her life today. As well as the traditional, the alternative country and folk rock style of Shania Twain and Brandi Carlile, has brought her to where she is today. Mitzy’s material now is highly influenced by Amy Winehouse and her music is a mix of R&B, Jazz, Soul and Blues, with an individual vibe.
Mitzy began her singing career locally in the North East of Scotland in sheltered housing complexes, bars and clubs, before performing to a packed audience in a Charity Concert in aid of Marie Curie in Inverurie town hall. In 2012 she auditioned and was chosen to perform for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee open-air concert in Duthie Park, Aberdeen.
Having reached the regional finals of Open Mic competition in Glasgow in 2012 and Teen Star in 2013, Mitzy was spotted by a record company in London who eventually signed her up on an Artist Development Programme.
Working in their recording studios in London, Mitzy began to write her own material in collaboration with a co-writer who has worked alongside the likes of Emile Sande and Connor Maynard.
