Jonathan Mitchell

About the Artist: 

Jonathan Mitchell’s love for music started at a young age.  His family speaks of him singing harmonies at the age of 5, far before he knew the meaning of it.  Raised the son of a preacher, music was a monumental part of his life, first beginning with an affinity for old hymns and later finding influence in the music of Tom Petty, The Band, Hall and Oates, and his sister, Aslyn, also a recording artist.  Jonathan began writing and touring in college with several bands, his travels expanding the US into Europe. After playing 4 years of college golf and graduating, he moved to Atlanta to further pursue songwriting and within a year, joined forces with his brothers to form a band called Georgia.  The band landed a record deal with Atlantic Records and began recording their debut album, Slow Down Easy with Mike Daly (Whiskeytown) and Joe Chiccarelli (Brandi Carlile, My Morning Jacket, The White Stripes).  Jonathan has toured and shared the stage with Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Need to Breathe, Zac Brown Band, Ryan Bingham, Better Than Ezra, Ed Roland, Cold War Kids, to name a few.  In 2011, Jonathan moved to 30A to create Ohana Records. Ohana Records is a modern music program for students at Ohana Institute in Rosemary Beach, FL. The students form bands and experience inspiration, growth in confidence and team building through the medium of music and songwriting. In 2015, Jonathan created a new program called Rock On The Road, the first ever student led rock tour. In this program, students take on all the roles connected with a tour and travel around the country planting the seed of music.  Jonathan is also the worship leader for the Chapel at the Beach in Rosemary Beach. Jonathan's songwriting falls in the country meets pop/rock category with an emphasis on the hook. Bryan Kennedy, writer of numerous #1 hits said, "I rarely meet someone so talented, humble and more generous with their gifts than Jonathan Mitchell. He's a hidden treasure. What a great singer/songwriter, teacher and human being. I'm a Jonathan Mitchell fan!"​
