16-year-old Mitch Santiago is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist from Perth, Australia. Described by triple j as a “Perth prodigy making extremely good indie rock” and as one of Bigsound 2022’s “9 standout acts ready to explode”, Mitch celebrated the release of his latest singles, Out For You and How I See You, with his first national headline tour back in July.
Out For You, is described by triple j as a “massive new track that sees Mitch Santiago sharpen his vast psych sound with a bitta indie rock flair. If you’re into Spacey Jane, that’s the vibe”. The release of Out For You followed Mitch’s first single, Falling, which has accumulated almost 1.7 million global streams.
Mitch has busked and gigged through hundreds of performances to emerge as a seasoned live performer. This passion for live music has enabled him to shape his massive one-person live show and signature sound and also plays a crucial role in refining his original music “to a place where I am super happy with it”.
Attendees of one of Mitch’s high-energy shows can expect to be blown away by the catchy songwriting, powerful vocals and a soaring soundscape of multiple live-looped tracks and effects fused into a sonic wall that will leave them breathless.
Mitch spent the last few months in the studio with producer Andy Lawson to release his latest track, ‘Seeing Straight’ – which premiered on November 2nd on triple J and is now available on all streaming platforms.
He also recently wrapped up two showcases at Brisbane’s annual music event BigSound in September, creating a massive buzz. To celebrate the release of his latest single Seeing Straight, Mitch is playing this one-off Perth (Freo) show on November 18th with special guests, Sophian and Angie Colman.
