‘I told my wife, “I feel like I’ve unconsciously written about my own journey with grief,” Mitch said, who is married to wife Lele. 

‘Losing my dad to cancer and then stepping out into the spotlight with all the online people and warriors and trying to navigate that… I feel like I’ve unconsciously written about my own journey,’ he said. 

Mitch said his new single is about overcoming the storms in life and he hopes the track will help others in their own journey and amid the coronavirus pandemic.

‘It’s a single that means a lot to me and is almost this song that’s allowed me to strip it back, it really comes from the heart, it’s an outpour,’ he said. 

‘I’m blessed to put music out in a time where people are losing jobs, careers and business. I feel like my artistry is moving forward and it’s a massive blessing.’

Mitch said he hopes his music is like ‘medicine’ to anyone doing it tough in these unprecedented times. 

‘I really hope this one is medicine, it’s truly the intent, we’re losing a lot of people whether it’s due to the pandemic, suicides in lockdown, mental health, whatever it maybe,’ he said. 

‘I hope this song can touch a lot of lives and encourage people to work through what they’re going through and give them a new lease on life.’

Mitch was just 22 years old when his father was diagnosed with two types of cancer.  

Mitch, who hails from Tamworth but lives in Melbourne with his family, appeared on Australia’s Got Talent back in 2019 and made it to the final.

The singer, who is of Aboriginal decent, is known for his bilingual version of John Farnham’s You’re The Voice.

He said he hopes to one day collaborate with American country singer Luke Combs and hopes to get back to performing live for fans once lockdown ends. 

Looking back at his time on Australia’s Got Talent, Mitch said it’s been an interesting time coming off the show and the world battling the pandemic.  

‘I almost feel like I came off the back of AGT, and then I’ve been in lockdown for 200 days, there’s so much momentum, opportunities and financial things that come with it that’s been lost,’ he explained. 

‘But with the dark storm over the whole world, there are also opportunities I’m really blessed to have had.’
